Move Creator Keen to Open Controller Up to PC Coders

On your Marks
We reported recently that we could see an update to allow PlayStation Move to work on PC, and it seems the driving force behind such an update could be none other than Dr Richard Marks, the controller's creator.
Speaking to Ars Technica, Dr Marks mentioned his desire to open the controller to a wider range of creative folks:
For a long time I've mentioned in my talks that we'd like to let more people innovate with Move. It's a nice tool. It is made for the PS3, so it's difficult in that sense for us to let it happen. I would really like to see it happen, so all the really creative minds in the labs and the hobbyists can actually play around with it. But as of now, we haven't announced anything official. But it is something I really want to see happen as soon as possible.
A recent rumour pointed to a talk at this month's Game Developers Conference that would outline PlayStation Move Server software, an as-yet unannounced project for programmers to create their own Move-compatible titles on PC. Will we see Move work with PC in future? We'll keep you updated right here.
