Does Oculus only work for games from Steam? Like HL2, TF2, Skyrim, Mirror Edge etc?

    The Rift can operate with almost any software. It's not exclusive to Steam titles, even if many of the current demos are on the Steam platform.

    So Vireio Perception supported games does not have to be downloaded from Steam?

    no they dont as Skyrim can be bought on DVD. though a lot of games now are requiring steam to install which honestly i think isnt a bad thing as i never had a problem with steam usually so.

    Well officially only TF2 and HL2 are supported, and you will need Steam installed to access the content. In the future, this does not need to be the case. In fact, there are a number of unofficial mods that work without Steam (for example Minecrift).
