VR exclusives are a "pretty good thing for the consumer" says Oculus head of contentVR exclusives are a "pretty good thing for the consumer" says Oculus head of content

Clueless is the most civial way of describing this numpty. Exclusivity as he's describing is like the PS4/Xbone split. The PC is a single platform with the rift and vive being peripherals for it.

Their push for hardware DRM and riftstore only titles is anything but pro consumer and is more likely to hurt the games being made as there's a lot of folk who will opt to simply not buy the riftbook based titles even with the option of using revive. Assuming of course they don't just go down the pirated route.

I've never liked facebook, the vive was the more complete package (still is) and I'll not being buying anything from rift store even with revive since buying gives credence to their claims that exclusives are good.

The comparisons to sony are just blind PR nonsense. Pretty sure if someone was to make a similar headset that could be used instead of the psvr sony wouldnt try and slap drm's on their games so only the official one could be used. They aren't that stupid!

Crea review snippet How well does Crea let you develop your character?
As you do various activities you gain xp for those things, so gathering gets you gathering xp, melee combat melee xp, etc. Each one has seperate skills that unlock as you level it up but you can choose which unlocked abilities can be actually bought (xp based "cash") Some parts can be levelled pretty fast like gathering and crafting. I found exploring to take maybe the longest, with a bit of experimenting (a macro that ran me left and right along a tunnel) it looks to be based on time spent moving and how far from home you happen to be. Then to top it off there's the more standard level up that gives stat points to spend. It means that for a solo player it will take a long time to get a fully developed character while friends playing coop can set themselves proper roles and buy their skills and spend their stats accordingly.

Devs better be careful they could be seen as promoting euthenasia.

Although if someone arrives on the operating table brain dead does that still apply.

I'm not pro piracy but have to say that if this update to revive hurts the pockets of the money grabbers at facebook then I'll shed no tears.

I might download cracks to bypass drm on games I've bought (which is what revive was kind of doing) but I won't buy games off the riftstore to use with revive. Buying games from them gives legitimacy to their drm choice.

Platform exclusives are one thing when it's PC/PS4/Xbone but rift and vive are peripherals for the PC.

Will be interesting to get feedback from 3rd party devs who are locked into that store to see how they feel about how their games are being treated. I can't believe facebook money will be that good that they would be happy about lost sales.

As mentioned below if valve were to enter the fray their potential warchest is much larger than the occulus camps. Although what they could do is simply say to new VR games that they have to cover both headsets in order to get a certain level of promotion in the store. They could also make rift only games harder to find. Steams store has more options to be sneaky and mildly underhanded about things than slapping a blanket hardware drm on stuff.
