Sony Japan trademarks “PlayStation Arc”

Sony Motion Controller’s rumored “Arc” name may just become its official designation, a trademark filing suggests.

Following execs’ repeated references to the controller as Arc and despite being called “a rumored codename” by Sony itself, a Japanese “PlayStation Arc” trademark filed by the company (unearthed by Siliconera) leaves little to the imagination.

Sony Computer Entertainment America‚Äôs David Coombes (Platform Research Manager) and Kirk Bender (Developer Support) will be holding an hour-long lecture on the device at the Game Developers Conference next week. Here’s hoping the official name will be revealed then, too.
