PlayStation Move creator to discuss 'future of innovation' for PlayStation at GDC

The senior director of research and development at Sony Computer Entertainment America, Richard Marks, will discuss "the future of innovation" at SCEA in a sponsored session at GDC 2014 later this month.

Marks is best known for his contributions to the EyeToy camera and PlayStation Move controller, PlayStation accessories that introduced new control methods for existing platforms. Last November, Marks appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, showing off the DualShock 4 and PlayStation 4 game The Playroom just prior to the launch of Sony's new console.

Joining Marks at GDC will be Anton Mikhailov, senior software engineer at SCEA R&D, and Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios. The session, titled "Driving the Future of Innovation at Sony Computer Entertainment," promises "a presentation on innovation at PlayStation and the future of gaming," but provides no other details.

Sony has been heavily rumored to be working on its own virtual reality headset, a device tipped as a PlayStation-centric competitor to Oculus VR's Rift. At last year's E3, Yoshida himself said he was personally interested in the Rift, but wouldn't comment on PS4 support for Oculus' headset.

"Driving the Future of Innovation at Sony Computer Entertainment" will take place on Tuesday, March 18 at 5:45 pm PT. GDC 2014 runs from March 17-21 in San Francisco, Calif. at the Moscone Center.
