Bad news for HTC Vive: Oculus new update will not allow you to use its applications that run on virtual reality. Although oculus rift and HTC Vive users have always been able to use the same apps and games but finally it seems like the true virtual reality Giants have a falling out over something. As a result of this anyone who is using an HTC powered virtual reality headset will now no longer be able to access oculus powered applications and games because of the latest update in the oculus rift.
Previously this exchange of games and applications on a different platform altogether was possible with the help of atul named revise. This was not an official tour but it did allow oculus applications to run on HTC headset. However oculus has now seems to become more alert about these activities and has finally put a platform integrity check on every application that it has launched. Hence now if you access any app that is an oculus based one from in HTC headsets it will perform a platform integrity check and will come to a conclusion that it is not really belong to your headset and will not run.
The Revive application was a rather intelligently made one. Very cleverly it would make the application believe that there is a rift device attached, so it ran perfectly even on the HTC device. So now you pretty much have no other choice but to invest in and oculus rift and if you do not have the money to do that then it is game over for the oculus apps on your device.
According to spokespeople from oculus they feel that although Palmer luckey had earlier promised that he would not restrict people into using his headsets only they have now been forced to come into this oculus rift only policy because this application continually popped every application that was created by an oculus developer and violated inspire see. Every developer put in a lot of hard work behind his application and if he was not getting his due then it would of course cause of concern to him Hans oculus had to take this step and put a platform integrity check on every application that it has launched now.
