We like the name ‘Move’. It has purpose, and a meaning. Unfortunately the Move’s attachment – the SubController – is a little less inspiring. In fact, it sounds downright boring which is definitely not what Sony is after.
Well it seems a new name is in order if the US PlayStation site is to believed.
Get ready – this name is going to blow your mind!
As we reported earlier, ex Infinity Ward heads Vince Zampella and Jason West have started up a new studio named Respawn Entertainment and have partnered with Activision’s main rivals Electronic Arts.
So – how has Activision taken the news? Break ups are always tough, especially when multi million dollar franchises are involved.
The PS3 was the top dog in Japan in the week ending April 4th – although surprisingly it was nearly beaten by the PSP which came in at number two.
Caviar and champagne for everyone?

If reports are to be believed, it seems that people are finally warming to Blu-ray – but will movies on demand rain on its parade?
The countdown to Sony’s E3 conference in LA has officially begun after it was announced that it will be held on June 15th.
The Nintendo Wii seems to be the thorn in the side of the PlayStation Move. Hardly an article goes by without a comparison, and Nintendo of America President ‘The Reginator’ is milking that for all its worth.
Saying that, we do think his trash talk is covering up a hint of worry – and perhaps even embarrassment. The Move has already demonstrated a level of accuracy the Wii can only dream of.
However, the two motion controllers do share some common ground – and Wii ports are only a matter of time. Here are Team Attitude’s list of the five games we really don’t want to see.
Many people claim that retail giant GAME is evil – but they may just be right if comments by GameStation general manager Steve Wind-Mozley are anything to go by.
It’s too late – they own you now.
You may think Team Attitude has travelled back in time to play some time warped related April Fools joke here – alas this is not the case.

It seems that developers have cottoned on to the power of Twitter when used as a free marketing tool.
Eagle eyed gamers scan relevant Twitter feeds waiting to pounce on any hint of announced.

Cast your mind back a few days and you might remember our report on the BioWare Bazaar – and how it seemed to exclude every country but America.
It seems we weren’t the only people who felt aggrieved – and boy have they let BioWare know about it.
The reaction has been so bad that BioWare bosses have come out to make a public apology.
Team Attitude has no problem with lists – they are normally a sure fire way to get people talking, even if they don’t necessarily agree with what has been put down.
However, we do prefer it if the list makes actual sense. On that note, step forward The Independent newspaper who has recently released a ‘top 50’ games list – in at number twenty two is…the Wii Remote Charging Stand? Wait, what…?
The season of secrets and mysteries has begun – with a very excitable THQ trying to get us hyped up about an upcoming fighting game.

Michael Pachter is a bit of a funny onion. The analyst from Wedbush Morgan Securities is actually pretty good at his job – that is until he wades into the video games territory.
Yes, over the years his comments have ranged from wildly inaccurate to blindingly obvious – unfortunately many people take them as gospel.
Let’s celebrate some of his best quips.
