http://kotaku.com/5423269/sony-gem-was-a-prototype-name-for-ps3-motion-controller

And Sony's motion controller is the most God-offending one of them all. Seriously, what the fuck is that thing? Am I supposed to take this seriously? It looks like one of those rotating lolipop candies they used to sell in Kmart's checkout lines. I can't wait for it to change colors. My 9 month old daughter might be entertained by such a thing.

Sony's technology is the best!

You might want to redact that sentence.

Dirtier minds might think of something else, but that's what it makes me think of too.  Terrible, terrible, terrible.

Heh, almost as bad as Square Enix advertising its merchandise as "SQEX TOYS."  Can guarantee you it vibrates.

Soon people on this board will post stories of various Gems getting mangled in a variety of bizarre mishaps. Stuff like porcupine needles getting stuck in a Gem, somebody greasing up their Gem to wipe on various windows, some robber's Gem gets taken by a store owner he robbed and uses it till it breaks, and so on.

And everyone else will sit around for weeks commenting on each story as stupid because they will have nothing better to do.

Let's hope they never export the Gem to Russia.

That orb allows the camera (Playstation Eye, not a new camera) track the controller, and by the look of it offer higher quality motion/cursor tracking. When it comes down to improved funtionality or better aesthetics I'll take improved functionality just about any day.

No, what needs to be blasted is that, last I checked, they intend to just make you use the DualShock as the Nunchuk rather than provide a proper one.

Electric shaver with a light bulb. Couldn't settle for a Lightsaber?

Couldn't they have named it Orb, instead of Gem?

No, because then it wouldn't have sounded NEARLY pornographic enough.

"Hey Sue, what's that?"

"Oh it's my new toy, the Gem."

"Looks... exotic. Where'd you get it?"

"Wal-Mart."

"Hot DAMN they're actually carrying EVERYTHING now!"

"You have to plug it into a PS3 for it to work though. Tom has to play one of his games while I used it."

"Eh, couple's therapy toys. You know how it is."

I'm pretty sure they already make a vibrator called The Orb. Copyright issue and all that.
