Meta Quest+ subscription and Oculus PCVR compatibility

Hiya

Last year, someone on Reddit confirmed that cross buy compatible Meta Quest+ subscription games work via Oculus PCVR.

I just bought a Meta Quest+ subscription.

Games I've redeemed as part of my Meta Quest+ subscription, that are cross buy compatible, never the less don't appear in my Oculus library.  If I click on them, I only get the option to buy them, not to install them.

Examples-

  • Richie's Plank Experience *
  • I Expect You To Die *
  • The Climb, Contractors
  • Until You Fall
  • 2MD: VR Football Unleashed ALL☆STAR
  • Red Matter

( * Part of the 2 games you get added to your library month, whereas the others are a part of the rotating collection, in case this matters )

 

What's even stranger, is that one game above, that I didn't redeem via the Android Meta Quest app, "2MD: VR Football Unleashed ALL☆STAR", I was given the suggestion when using Oculus Link, viewing the Oculus store, to "GET", suggesting it should be available via the Oculus library, but when I clicked on it I got an error code (OVR98597979.)  Interestingly, after doing that, it's now listed as successfully redeemed on the Android Meta Quest app library etc, but again, if I browse to it in my Oculus library, it's not there, and if I find it on the Oculus store, I have to buy it to get it.

Something seems amiss to me!

  • Is there something amiss with my account?
  • Is this a bug?
  • Or is this an official policy change re Oculus PCVR / Meta Quest+ subscriptions by Meta?

 

PS I did try live chat, but the answer I was given was in essence that some games are Quest only - yes I know that, but the above listed games are proper cross buy games.

@G3na5ide  Just to save you a little time, I've already gone through all this with a meta support ticket that eventually got bumped up to someone who knew the answer.  The answer is that Meta+ apps can only be played on the Quest standalone headset.  Even if they are cross-buy they cannot be used in PCVR unless you actually purchase it separately. 

If you're like me and have a strong gaming PC then this isn't good news, but that's just the way it is right now.  I got a free 6mo trial with my Q3/512Gb and unless this policy changes I'm unlikely to extend this subscrition.

Aside; don't believe everything you read in Reddit, lol!  I got sooo tired of trying to correct Reddit kiddies I've actually deleted my account.

Thank you for the response.

I appreciate your eagerness to help me directly and privately but in the first instance I think it's reasonable to request an answer the following simple version of the question publicly, first-

Are cross buy compatible games available on the Meta Quest+ subscriptions available to play over Meta Quest Link (Oculus PC app / PCVR)?

If the answer is no then it represents a policy change by Meta and there's no point following up my individual situation privately.

Following up, why does the Quest+ Subscription not work with Meta PC Crossbuy?

@LunchAndJosh  Just the current Meta+ policy, just the way it is.  If you don’t agree with this policy, just vote with your wallet imho.

I am, never spent a dime on Quest+, just the free 6 month trial 🙂

If they do add crossbuy into it then maybe I'll spend on it
