Consider that the oculus store now has a game that requires a uplay account.

    That's not an issue with the Oculus store, complain to the game's developer.  And anyway why would you expect it to?  It costs Steam and Oculus money to distribute a game to you, and they don't get their cut if you buy it somewhere else

    Yeah I'd probably go with a mildly disappointed with the devs option if there was one

    and the winner for the most biased, and therefore pointless poll goes to............................

    PS if you buy GTA V or ETS2  direct last i looked you did not get a steam key, neither if you buy anything from uplay, or origin either......

    infact, unless its a steamworks game the devs are under no obligation to supply one.  I agree it is nice when they do however but steam are not a charity, and will not dish out keys for free AFAIK.

    Frontier is the only one that does it, that I've run into anyway.  May be some others.  And occasionally you can put the key for a physical game into Steam.  But I'd call those the exceptions.

    Your poll is biased as it does not offer a counterpoint.

    My answer is I am not concerned.

    I will buy a game wherever it is cheaper with a preference for Oculus Home for reasons which have been discussed a thousand times.

    Look, man. I only need to know one thing: where they are.

    alas polls can't be edited... this one will have to stay as is, for anyone feeling generally quite angry

    • About as furious as I get when BMW doesn't offer service for my Audi.
    Why in the world would Steam spend money (server capacity and support) servicing a product you didn't buy from them.

    I'm not sure what that has to do with Oculus games giving free Steam keys?

    Anyway, "Not Concerned". If I want a game on my Steam account, I'll buy it from Steam. I've bought a few VR games there, but overall, I'd prefer to have my VR content on Oculus Home.

    You should be furious with yourself for buying from the wrong store, if that's how you feel about Oculus Home.

    On a side note, I've bought a few Uplay games through Steam in the past, but I avoid doing that these days--having a game locked to two clients doubles the odds that you can't play it due to a store glitch or network problem. If a game needs to connect to a client, be it Steam, Uplay, Origin, or Oculus Home, then that's where I buy it.

    More than fine with having my VR games in the non cluttered Oculus store only.
