I think all the negative comments are from fanboy's (myself included)being heartbroken that they sold to facebook. They will get over it in time. After I calmed down I think this is definitely in the best interests of VR. Who wont take Oculus seriously now? Also the PRESSURE to put out a killer product is even greater,you dont get 2 billion dollars to put out something that is garbage. Now people like NVidia and ATI will have to kick it into overdrive to make more powerful graphics cards cheaper if they want a part of the billions of dollars facebook will make from this.I think this gives Oculus the time and resources to put out a much better product than they would have without facebook's support.

I would still like to know the details of the transaction (cash, FB stock, etc.).

 

$400 million in cash along with about $1.6 billion in stock.

Given the way by which Facebook changes its security and advertising settings, hidden, at will, do you *really* want to spend $400+ on a device that may both spontaneously drop ads on you in the middle of an engagement ("goin' in for guns... pull... pull... get him to the pipper... c'mon... GUNSGUNSBUY A FORD FIESTA!"), or will consider every move you make on that screen their intellectual property?

 

No, I will not buy an OR. I don't need Zuckerberg finding new ads to put in my face, putting ads in my face to use his device, or recording my actions. FFC.

Actually- you know who I feel sorry for (and I refuse to feel sorry for this person because of his general level of self-importance)?

 

Gabe Newell. He *GAVE* OR the technology, gratis, because of how important he felt it was.

 

And this is how they thank him?

 

Please. The owners of OR should never be considered for employment in the community again. The only one who walks away clean is Carmack.

If Palmer wanted to sell it to FB, that's his prerogative. I have no issues with it. That doesn't mean I'm not sad about it. And I canceled my DK2 order just now. I have DK1, and ordered the DK2 to lend a helping hand (every order helps a small company). But clearly, that's no longer the case.

 

Personally speaking, I don't think this is a good idea. I don't believe that devs will get the same love from a smaller/agile company like Oculus. Good , bad or otherwise, they will become absorbed into FB. In the immediate future, devs may shy away to see what happens, while another camp will be excited about gaining access to FB user base.

 

I don't use FB, so I'm talking out of my ass when I say this. But I just don't see why a normal FB user would want the Rift. Some are saying this could be the "next big thing" but it's too immature as a technology for general use. Gamers will put up with a lot just to get the immersion factor. But I just don't see you average FB guy wanting to don the headset to interact with others.

 

Do people really want to "around" the virtual world? Outside of games, I just don't know if your avg consumer will care.

For all we know Gabe gave his blessing on this acquisition,and since Steam will be selling VR games they will benefit as well. Also I think this will force Microsoft and Google into the mix also. I think we have a full blown VR war coming and that can only be good news for us!!

I was seriously considering saving money for this. Now I am not.

 

Uncoolness confirmed. No respect.

 

This is a slap in the face of anyone who has ever contributed to a crowd funding project.

Why so?

If their vision is not just deliver a headset, but rather deliver a Metaverse, then they gonna need plenty of money and "big brother" for support.

Besides, Mark Zuckerberg says the short time plans and commitments of Oculus will not change.

I know what you mean. My first visceral reaction was "ah....crap" But in the end, the company - once it has met the backer obligation - can do what they want to do. What they think is best in the interest of the product *or* the owners. I still think it's not a good thing, but I'm willing to wait and see. I'll hold off on judgment until I see where this is headed (not that it means anything - LOL)

I can guarantee you that guy will eat those words. Oculus did not have the money to make what they wanted to make in the timeframe they wanted to make it. I'll bet money Oculus has a super secret prototype that blew away Zuckerberg and he threw his wallet at them. Have some faith guys;)

Sorry you feel that way,I've been following the rift since day one. The reason I follow it is because I feel they have the best chance of putting out good VR first. The Facebook acquisition doesnt change that,it accelerates it.

I am inclined to agree. I am not a fan of FB's methods or their web thingy but it does take one hell of a lot of money to develop something like this (properly) and they have it to give.

 

I don't think this is going to hurt OR either. The posts on the Facebook page are largely just crowd noise.
