Sony explains the ‘Move’ name

We’ll never know if the ‘Arc’ was just a codename while they thought of a better one, or if they (Sony) woke up one morning and just didn’t like it. Sony Worldwide Studios VP Scott Rohde explains why it’s now known as the PlayStation Move.

Speaking to IndustryGamers here’s what Scott had to say…

“It’s great – everyone’s so interested in how our company names products,”

“It’s like at any other company; everyone dumps in their ideas and you’ve got agencies out there coming up with names.

“At the end of the day, we really felt that Move conveyed what the controller is all about. It’s a word that the smallest kid understands, and it’s a really good name. I’m happy with it.”
