Oculus Removes DRM Restrictions Blocking ReVive Hack

After taking a ton of flack over its DRM policy, it would appear that Oculus is backtracking a bit. This is a statement from an Oculus representative on the company's recent change of heart:

We continually revise our entitlement and anti-piracy systems, and in the June update we’ve removed the check for Rift hardware from the entitlement check. We won’t use hardware checks as part of DRM on PC in the future. We believe protecting developer content is critical to the long-term success of the VR industry, and we’ll continue taking steps in the future to ensure that VR developers can keep investing in ground-breaking new VR content."
