Oculus is constantly responding to the VR community and for the sake of that after a long wait finally Oculus has removed it’s Rift only DRM system entirely from their own VR store and that results in HTC Vive users can now test,play and enjoy Rift’s game on their hardware confirming that they won’t use hardware checks on PC in the future as a section of the DRM.

There’s a quick background which is pretty explainable in such a manner that there was a coder who developed an application called the ReVive which is programmed in such a way that it is intended to bypass Rift’s DRM only games for HTC Vive users although mentioning it as not to be a piracy matter quoting in such a way:

 This release should bypass the DRM on all Oculus Home games. Thus restoring the compatibility that Revive had before the Oculus Runtime 1.4 update. There is no more need for the RevivePlatform DLLs; you will need to remove these DLLs again or else you will get code signature errors.I still do not support piracy, do not use this library for pirated copies.

Now as Oculus decides not to maintain DRM for Vive any more it’s means clearly that HTC Vice users can now  play any game from Oculus Home they want without any third party interference without any patch quoting in such a way as:

I’ve only just tested this, and I’m still in disbelief, but it looks like Oculus removed the headset check from the DRM in Oculus Runtime 1.5. As such I’ve reverted the DRM patch and removed all binaries from previous releases that contained the patch.
