PlayStation Move Sub-Controller renamed

Sony’s PlayStation Move controller comes in either one or two pieces, depending on what titles you’re playing. You have your standard Move controller with the glowing ball at the top, then you have your sub-controller – containing a D-Pad and navigational buttons for movement.

Until today, that controller was known as the PlayStation Move Sub-Controller. Today, however, it’s received a new name: the Navigation Controller.

The revelation was made thanks to a new filing by Sony at the FCC, where you can also find its official SKU, if anybody’s interested.

Navigation Controller. Much better name than Sub-Controller, isn’t it?
