PC Move Support

by GeorgeFebruary 1, 2011

According to information from the Playstation Move GDC panel, Sony is set to reveal PC support for their Playstation 3 motion sensor technology. Apparently it will be presented in the form of something known as “Move Server” which will allow third party programmers to create their own applications which use the technology. The official synopsis reads.

“The Move Server program will will make it possible for academics and hobbyists to develop software using the PlayStation Move controller on their own PCs.”

Rival technology such as Microsoft’s Kinect has already seen hacks that make it compatible with the PC, but this move will be a completely official one and will inspire programmers to legally expand the potential of the Move hardware. The panel is to be hosted by SCEA’s senior developer support engineer John McCutchan on March 2nd. Let us know what kind of Move applications you would love to see in the comment area.

George has been playing video games since he first got to play on his friend's Sega Saturn and saw something between the pixels, eventually falling in love with the virtual world. Then that Christmas he was given a PS1, and one day he was playing as a dragon and the next he was playing football with the best of them. Since then his life has been one long string of games tied together by other things. He's just as likely to be playing Left 4 Dead 2, as he is painting my new Warhammer army for the tabletop.
