Send your suggestions here...

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Sony isn’t content with the PlayStation 3’s upcoming Motion Control peripheral and wants to improve its functionality, lower the price, build a broader compatible games catalogue change the device’s name.

World+Dog may have grown accustomed to calling the Microsoft Project Natal rival "Motion Control", but Sony executive Shuhei Yoshida this week said: “There are several candidates for the name of the controller.”

While Yoshida didn’t say what the peripheral’s eventual name would be, he said it “won’t be so techy” as Sixaxis and DualShock 3, the PlayStation controllers both named after the technology they're based upon.

One thing about the motion controller which is certain is that it will hit European shops during Spring 2010. ®
