Razer release SDK for PC motion control
Razer have announced that they have released software development kits for their as yet unreleased Sixense motion controllers.
The controllers were demoed earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The SDK software is now available via Steam labelled Sixense Truemotion SDK and offers developers the chance to start developing motion sensitive control schemes for their current games as well as forthcoming titles.
Razer explained just how easy the controllers are to code for by saying that it took two weeks to implement Sixense support in Left 4 Dead 2.
Valve's Greg Coomer supports the claims: "Together with Razer and Sixense, we are designing new, more enjoyable gameplay mechanics in Left 4 Dead 2, as well as future Valve titles."
Sixense still doesn't have a release date yet but the release of the SDK does indicate that we might have a concrete date very soon.
