PlayStation Move PC support incoming?

Sony to discuss Move Server at GDC.

Sony could be about to unveil official PC support for its PlayStation Move motion controller, if a Game Developers Conference panel listing is to be believed.

Kotaku has reported that Sony engineer John McCutchan will be taking to the stage at the San Francisco industry pow-wow next month for a presentation titled "Update on PlayStation Move Development".

According to the GDC site, "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. 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."

We've contacted Sony for further clarification but failing that Eurogamer will be on site in San Francisco next month to report back on what Sony has to say.

Of course, this isn't the first time potential PC applications for the new wave of console motion controllers has been discussed in recent months. Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer recently hinted that official PC support for its Kinect peripheral wasn't far away.
