Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has announced the next step in its support for academia, researchers and programming hobbyists, with the launch of Move.me. The new software tool, which is designed to make developing for the PlayStation Move platform more accessible, will be available from today for download in the UK and Europe.
Move.me, which was previously only available in the United States has been specifically designed for use by academic institutions and it enables the creation of applications that go beyond traditional gaming. In particular, Move.me extends the Move platform to facilitate rapid prototyping of game and non-game concepts on PCs by using PlayStationMove as an input device. It allows the Move controller to be used for greater experimentation beyond traditional gaming and idea generation, and opens the door for more advanced innovative research.
“Move.me is already being used by various universities in North America in cutting edge physical therapy and creative design projects, so we’re eagerly anticipating what else is possible now we’ve extended its availability,” said Maria Stukoff, Head of Academic Development and Partnerships at SCEE. “A BETA trial is already under way with academia across the UK and Europe, so we’re some expecting some exciting developments in the year ahead that really stretch the imagination.”
The launch of Move.me in the UK and Europe is just one example of SCEE’s work with academia, designed to support the up-skilling of the next generation of PlayStation savvy game developers.
