A large number of developers have already come out and said that they will no longer be supporting the occulus rift after being bought by Facebook, and I don't blame them, I will be waiting for the next big virtual reality headset that doesn't sell its self out to such an evil company like FacebookSo many short sighed people on here. The facebook buy of OR is a great thing. It's still going to be a gaming headset, but now it'll also get more development for other uses and push it into the main stream, not just as a niche device. Most tech that we use for gaming has a non-gaming mainstream component. You think Nvidia / AMD make the bulk of their money from gaming applications of their hardware? No.You think the internet was created for gaming? No. With Oculis Rift being a main stream device, you'll get a lot more support for it and the company will have the financial backing to make it even better than you ever hoped it could be.Feel free to not buy it when it comes out. I'll be enjoying TES 6 on it, living it up, and you'll still be using some POS monitor. Doesn't bother us hardware enthusiasts one bit if you don't buy it.
One developer (of Minecraft) doesn't constitute a large number.I know seemingly alot of folk are irked at the moment, but once this technology is readily available to the public (soon), most will forget all their facebook woes. Especially developers who can make some very handsome money with this technology. I don't care what company owns Oculus, as long as the product is quality-built, works as advertised, and keeps me entertained - that's what I'll be paying for. I've always thought Oculus would be bought by some big company... I was entertaining the possibility of Apple, Google, Valve, or Microsoft for the most likely candidates, but nevertheless: at the end of the day Facebook has a big wallet, and now so too does Oculus; which means they can serve up a better tested, true quality VR product. I for one, still can't wait!A large number of developers have already come out and said that they will no longer be supporting the occulus rift after being bought by Facebook, and I don't blame them, I will be waiting for the next big virtual reality headset that doesn't sell its self out to such an evil company like Facebook
