The synopsis of a Game Developers Conference panel scheduled for next month has revealed that Sony is working on a “Move Server” which would allow PC owners to use PlayStation 3’s Move controller.
Titled “Update on PlayStation Move development”, the panel’s synopsis contains the following phrase: “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.”
The panel will be presented by John McCutchan, SCEA’s lead of the Game Systems team in Developer Support.
Sony appears to be trying to increase their sales as much as possible after Microsoft reported 8 million Kinect units sold. However, it’s worth nothing that hackers have already created PC drivers for both Kinect and WiiMote a while ago and seem to have completely ignored Move. No one created the drivers for it because it doesn’t offer anything different then the WiiMote did. Microsoft has confirmed that it will release an official Kinect PC driver “when the time is right.”
