PS Move Precise Enough to Control StarCraft

Last week at GDC, Sony introduced Move and in a number of demos showed off just how Move worked. Among the little tidbits revealed during the demos by PlayStation researcher, Anton Mikhailov, and platform research manager, David Coombes, was that the peripheral uses just 2MB of system memory.

Kotaku reports that while demoing just how precise and accurately the Move can capture movements, Mikhailov said that they've been able to use the PlayStation 3 add-on as a device to control the PC version of StarCraft.

Do you think the precision of Move will be an important selling point for the device or do you think more people will buy it for casual gaming? Let us know in the comments below!

    No way in hell that thing can be usable for Starcraft if it has any bit of lag. 400APM? Hello?

    The real news here is that there is a possibility of using the Move on a PC.

    Am I the only one who is confused by the fact that this looks like a light bulb on a stick?

  • Precision is one thing. Response time is completely different.

    what on earth is the little color bulb at the end of the primary controller for? I thought it was just a photoshopped effect on the print ads that was meant to convey like "fun". but then i saw an actual picture of one in use and they're like bulbs! are they just meant for identification purposes?

    That was the first think I noticed. Does the light have any purpose?

    Also, I think using the Move on a PC would be really neat, just not for SC.

    Never mind about my previous post. The bulb is used by the PS eye to help track its motion and location. it's a wonder what a little googling will get you :D

    I could see something like this on the pc being cool for indie games and art.... but for any other gaming it would just be a huge frustrating hindrance.
