PS3 wand controller to be called Sphere?

Rumours abound of motion control title

Word on the blog circuit this afternoon has it that the PS3 motion controller (or is that the 'wand controller'?) will be called Sphere at launch, after the title surfaced as a code-name for the system.

Sega game maker Yasuhito Baba referred to the system as the Sphere in an interview with Joystiq over the Tokyo Game Show late last month.

Apparently, the title is a rather secret code-name, as even Sony representatives have denied all knowledge of the name when pressed by online media.

So, Sphere or not, we're unsure - however it's certainly catchier than 'wand controller'. Watch this space.
