Playstation Move PC bound?

Sony may be about to announce further support for their motion controller ‘Move’ on the PC if a recent listing at this months GDC is anything to go by. Senior developer support engineer John McCutchan of SCEA will be detailing a project called ‘Move Server’ which will apparently allow people to build games using Move on their PC’s.

A description on the GDC site goes into further details.

This talk will bring developers up to speed on developing for the PlayStation Move controller. We will cover developing for the new PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter accessory. We will discuss the new Move Server project that will make it possible for academics and hobbyists to develop software using the PlayStation Move controller on their own PCs.

Microsoft’s own motion controller Kinect, has already been subjected to something similar if, albeit not strictly official. In the months since Kinect’s release, some PC enthusiasts have hacked the device and programmed an assortment of software that hoped to unlock it’s potential that not even the games released for it have.

It could be that Sony may be seeking something similar with Move only with more official support backing it.
