Sony Move Server project to push PlayStation Move to PCs

Sony's plans to make the PlayStation Move controller a PC peripheral have been prematurely outed, after references to the "Move Server project" were included in a Game Developers Conference 2011 schedule. According to the description, Game Systems and Developer Support head John McCutchan will be discussing PC software development for Move at a GDC talk later this month.

McCutchan will be revealing the "Move Server project that will make it possible for academics and hobbyists to develop software using the PlayStation Move controller on their own PCs" as well as looking at how the Move Shooter accessory can be accommodated. The project appears to be Sony's attempt to kick start sanctioned hacking of the Move, perhaps in similar ways to how we've seen Microsoft's Kinect and, before then, Nintendo's Wii used in non-standard ways.
