The games are exclusive to the Oculus store, not directly to the Rift headset. Though it currently requires a minor workaround to run that stuff on a Vive.

Brass Tactics will be very interesting. There have already been a couple games previewing tabletop RTS game mechanics, but this looks like the first full-fledged RTS in that style.

If Oculus would have held up all their promises, they would simply require these games to be launched on the Oculus store with Rift functionality and those would be the only two requirements. The fact that they're restricting the games to ONLY their store and ONLY running on their HMD is disgusting and completely counter to all the PR speak we heard from Oculus for the first two years.

Yes, ReVive exists - but everytime you use it that's another vote for "yes, please keep making me jump through hoops to play your "exclusive" games!". The only way this crap stops is if we vote with our wallet. Please stop using ReVive.

@Sockpuppet. The Oculus Rift exclusives are payed for by Facebook as there is no way they can recoup the development cost with so few consumers. Therefore they have every right to make them only available at the Oculus store. I won't buy through Oculus store simply because Facebook could terminate ReVive at any time. Some games are time exclusive so they will eventually be available elsewhere (SuperHot VR just became available on Steam).
