Well I wasn't sure still, which is why I took the £400 punt. Glad I did, I'll never play Elite on a flat monitor again and that Robo Recall game is tons of fun. I dread to think what the horror.jump scare titles are like.

Oh and wandering around the ISS was pretty cool too.

Don't know about Steam support but I've loaded up into SteamVR with the Rift and everything I've tried so far has worked, even the Touch controllers, with no issues I've been able to detect.

Also, DIRTY CONSOLE PEASANT.

Yeah, you can use your Oculus/some other random VR headset fine with Steam because of OpenVR, Valve even go out of their way to patch in Oculus Touch support for SteamVR (nice one Valve)...But try to use the Vive on the Oculus store though, no chance. You need to use a third party program for that luxury. :s

I haven't needed to use SteamVR since I downloaded the Oculus beta track as that picks up external applications so you can launch them from the Oculus home screen, so Elite has been running fine without the need for Steam to be loaded at all.

At this point I've tried bits and pieces out, watched a few things on a big screen, and played a LOT of Elite including my first foray into driving around on planets. I'd say it was worth the money just for what I've got out of it so far, and I haven't even scratched the surface yet. It will definitely be interesting once they start bringing out the 4k/2nd Gen headsets. I understand people who don't like it because it's not as crisp as a monitor but, like the graphics in things like Terraria and Starbound, for me that's largely become irrelevant as the pluses are so great
