Just a Reminder: 64-Bit OS is Needed For Oculus Rift CV1

Probably most of you who read this, already have an operating system with 64 bit, as most gamers know that current games are not very 32-bit friendly.

However, this has not been widely messaged, so most of us, including me, were a bit out of loop. According to Oculus VR Community Manager, 64 bit has been a requirement since 0.7 Runtime that was released a few months ago.

However, it hasn’t been written in requirements, and only states that you need a Windows SP1. SP1 can be either x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit).

Oculus is slowly decreasing their circle of support, starting with Linux and OS X disappearance. Their reasoning behind these cuts is to focus on core players, and deliver a high quality performance for majority of people.

Not really big of a deal, but it’s better if most are aware of it.
