GDC Panel Description Hints At PlayStation Move For PCs

Sony looks set to unveil plans to bring its PlayStation Move motion controller to PCs at the upcoming Games Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco this March.

According to information on the GDC website, Sony Computer Entertainment America’s senior developer support engineer John McCutchan will deliver a talk about the company’s new PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter accessory and something called the “Move Server project”.

“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,” the description reads. “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.”

What all this will bring is not yet known, but given the popularity of hacking Microsoft’s Kinect for open source development and the recent announcement from company CEO Steve Ballmer that PC support for the platform could be on its way, we expect Sony to be lining up something similar for the Move.
