Brendan Iribe, CEO of Oculus: “Oculus is an open platform, and people will be able to make experiences accessible outside its official Oculus Home App Store.”
He makes it clear that Oculus Home will have a similar approval model to both Google Play and Apple's app store, but it will not stop anyone from running programs from different sources.
As part of the approval process, experiences will be given a “comfort” rating, that denotes whether they’re more or less likely to make someone dizzy or scare them. Iribe stressed that Oculus is an open platform, and people will be able to make experiences accessible outside its official Oculus Home App Store. Those could potentially be more hair-raising than Oculus would distribute.
He also mentions that their monetization strategy will also be similar to Google's and Apple's, but while he did not specify what cut Oculus would take he did say that it will be revealed before the Rift ships.
