PlayStation Move Sub-Controller Named 'Navigation Controller'

In my palms, these things look like Twix bars. Yes, I have big hands.

Those of you who have seen the PlayStation Move have probably noticed that the peripheral comes with a sub-controller like that of the Wii Nunchuk. The only difference here is that the Move’s sub-controller is wireless (yipee for Bluetooth!) and has a much cornier name which has been officially dubbed “Navigation Controller.” The Sony America site has already been updated in order to exhibit the change.

Pretty ingenious if you really think about how both names – Move and Navigation – go hand-in-hand. I’m going to be thinking of some cooler names that Sony might have gone with. Regardless, though, I’m pretty sure that the device will do well regardless of the mediocre and unappealing name(s) given. What do you guys think? Is the name “Navigation Controller” the way to go? Or could have they been a bit more creative?
