As you know Portal 1 beta rift support has been removed months ago. Do you think that's because of the Vive? I think so and maybe we will never get it back. Portal 1 with the rift was fun. I bought Portal 2 and thought it's just a matter of time Rift support would be enabled in the game. :cry: :cry: :cry:

That is a good piece of sluething newshound! Kudos to you! I did not know that. There has been a TON of speculation by wanna be sherlock holmes if Valve will allow the rift hardware to work on their software and ecosystem, you are saying they have made it where you CANNOT use portal although you once could on Oculus/Facebook hardware? Wow! What could be their reasons. That is very intersting. Cybereality, you are a member here, can you elaborate on that for us? Cert, do you know of any other things that have been removed, altered, changed like this? I would hate to think, that in the future, if I wanted to play portal or half life or anything else that keeps 125 million users at steam, that oculus/facebook solutions would NOT WORK there, I will not buy an oculus solution if that is true. I want to play portal, and if only Vive and/or others are allowed, but OCULUS is not allowed, then I fear its game over oculus. It will be a very interesting topic to teach in business schools of WHAT NOT TO DO, so that you ARENT LIKE PALMER LUCKEY, and burn such a valuable bridge as one gabe newell. What do you think cybereality? Could things have played out differently and Gabe and Palmer be much better friends than it seems they are? Why take away portal rift support? :(
