Earlier this afternoon we posted that the headset hardware check from the DRM. Oculus has reached out to PC invasion to confirm the removal.
“We continually revise our entitlement and anti-piracy systems, and in the June update we’ve removed the check for Rift hardware from the entitlement check. We won’t use hardware checks as part of DRM on PC in the future.
“We believe protecting developer content is critical to the long-term success of the VR industry, and we’ll continue taking steps in the future to ensure that VR developers can keep investing in ground-breaking new VR content.”
This is good news for anyone who was playing or tinkering using ReVive with legitimately purchased copies of games from the Oculus Store. In an ideal world, there would there would be no VR exclusives but that is not going to happen.
