I think it's actually "Jem", and they'll combine it with their 3D plans to make Jem & The Holograms. Wocka wocka wocka!

Sorry couldnt resist

 Just what I was thinking :)

 

g'dammit, I was gonna post that!

I was too, so great minds really do think alike!

I don't really like Gem, I'm sure they can come up with a better name than that.  But I'll go with whatever they choose.



Gem? meh.

I hope it's a working title.



I'm just glad that they finally gave it a damn name.

Gem is truly outrageous.

I really doubt that Sony motion wand will have any impact, Wii have captured the casual market, Ps3 and MS can try to get some share but its going to be marginal compared to nintendo

Blah blah blah trolling blah blah blah.

I for one am excited for the PS3 Gem/Wand/Sphere, since there's an opportunity for re-making a lot of amazing PS3 games (whether exclusive or multiplatform) with motion controls.

I agree with you, but what you said doesn't mean he was trolling.

In fact depending on what Microsoft does with Natal and the reception of the PS3 wand, I could actually trade my 360 for a PS3.

 



My Mario Kart Wii friend code: 2707-1866-0957

Products change names a bunch before they get released. Even if the motion controller was named "Gem" at some point, that doesn't mean it'll stay that way.

It won't be named until Sony themselves name it.

I was just annoyed because it really had little to do with the thread at hand except pushing Nintendo superiority.

I hope all the motion control schemes do well, but the PS-Sphere just seems like it would help the PS3 become a strong HD alternative to the Wii for a lot of people. And that could be very beneficial for Sony. I just hope they don't mess it up like they do with a lot of things.



 

 

GEM IS THE BEST NAME EVAH!
