PS Move Dev Kit Coming To a PC Near You
Posted on Monday, January 31 @ 22:19:51 Eastern by Daniel BischoffHave you ever played a game and thought "I could do this way better than they could!"
Why, you're just a little pompous asshole aren't you?!
Well, look Mr. Will Wright, it seems like you might be getting your chance! I mean, you're already more than capable of learning some programming languages, creating some original character art and developing your own rip off of Super Mario, but now you'll be able to develop for the PlayStation Move controller as well.
Game Revolution will be covering GDC in force this year and one talk we might want to sit in on is the "Update on PlayStation Move Development."
This particular lecture will be conducted by "Lead of the Game Systems team in Developer Support" of SCEA. You can call him John (McCutchan) for short.. John will be discussing all things PlayStation Move, including developing for the Move and developing for "the new PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter accessory."
That sounds amazing and all, but what we're really interested in is this bit towards the end of the description:
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.
When they talk about "academics and hobbyists" they're referring to all those people hacking away at the Kinect in their garages giving Microsoft free advertising all the while. Here's hoping the PSN will get a needed Move-software boost from academics and hobbyists soon.
