so let me get this straight... you have to run this app on the PS3 in order to connect it to the PC? Something tells me that the educational and hacking communities want a direct connection and will make their own if this turns out to be true.

Something tells me that the educational and hacking communities want a direct connection and will make their own if this turns out to be true.[/citation]Yeah this is stupid. Microsoft's SDK doesn't require a console to get in the middle. Plus... Move isn't nearly as slick for a PC based interface. The stuff the homebrew crowd has already demonstrated with Kinect is pretty sweet.
I doubt this will work out for those who want to develop anything software based for Sony on the community/amatuer level. With what happened to Chokolo, Sony is shooting itself w/ the flip-flop approach to allowing open access to their platform then taking it back.
[citation][nom]feeddagoat[/nom]The best part about Move.me is that developers won't need an SDK like other motion sensing products offered by competitors.Basically we're too lazy to design one ourselves.[/citation]
...and the next sentence read-
In fact, the Move.me app will come bundled with sample code, user documentation and corporate material from SCE Research and Development to get designers immediately started "out of the box."
Almost every comment here so far has been scoffing at this, but honestly developing apps for Move (with Sony's approval) ain't exactly the same thing as hacking PS3 firmware and spreading it all over the internet for people to inevitably take advantage of (illegally). The most obvious difference being it's just a peripheral.
Someone will create an emulator for the Move controller and Sony will issue a patch removing all PS3 capabilities, rendering the entire Move product line worthless. Fanboys will still line up to claim it was to prevent possible, someday, possible piracy or game cheats.
It is my opinion that you have to use the console as a middle point,because they can use it to see what you are up to. If you read the eula you give them permission to let them monitor any and all communication;if your ps3 is in between and they don't like what they see......yuck.
