How to try SteamVR
Edited to add:
NOTE: These instructions are out of date. Please find the latest instructions here.


As of the most recent Steam Client Beta steam now supports an experimental VR mode. If you
own an Oculus Rift dev kit you can try it out by starting Steam with "-vr" on the command line. Then press the Big Picture button to enter Big Picture + VR mode.

The first time you run you may need to do the following:
1) Run Steam in the desktop client without the -vr option
2) Find "SteamVR" under "Tools" in your library. (If you don't have it installed, install it.)
3) Bring up properties on SteamVR and opt-in to the "Beta Update" beta. Let the update download.
4) Quit the Steam Client again and start it with -vr


Please use this forum to provide feedback on VR mode.

Edited to add: This feature is currently only supported on Windows. Linux and OSX support are on the way.

Neat.

So I started the Steam Beta Client with the -vr parameter and launched Big Picture mode but there is no VR at all, just the regular Big Picture UI. Anyone else having problems?

I can confirm this, no VR mode at all.

I've done exactly as you have posted here yet Big picture mode is still launching normally. My rift is working fine and works in other games.

Not that it adds any more data to this problem, but I've run steam via the command prompt with the -vr tag (after restarting from the latest update) and no luck with vr big picture mode

This is just openVR, which in itself is just oculus's configuration utility. We're trying to see the new VR mode added to big picture.
