We’ve heard about the possibility of Move being used with PCs in the past. However, it seems Sony is serious about bringing its motion-sensing peripheral to computers, as a leaked synopsis for a panel set to take place at Game Develops Conference later this month betrays that the company will be making a little announcement for developers.
The description of the panel, which is called ‘Update on PlayStation Move’ reveals Sony plans to speak about a little something called “Move Server.”
“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 comment 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.”
Nothing else in the way of information, but GDC kicks off on February 28, so there really isn’t long to wait.
But it is a giant step forward with a minimal delay (still noticeable, but better than the wii, and the wii wasn't bad to begin with), very accurate to orientation, and doesn't freak out too much when a little kid spazzes out with it in front of the TV.
Imagine the price drop. Emulation would be cheaper to do and no physical parts to sell/rma and games transferred via the torrent protocol would be much cheaper.
Though greed would make the prices stay the same ~_~
I read somewhere recently that PC fps players destroy console fps players on cross platform games because of the keyboard/mouse advantage. It seems logical that this handicap would be increased using a motion controller.
