Gods damn it Oculus. You had so many millions in VC and and you sell out to Facebook? Why?

I don't think we'll just see Facebook minigames on this. They could keep this completely separate from their social media service.
I am going to hope and trust that this is what Palmer agreed to. I don't see him willingly giving up his dream for millions before CV1, and he best spend this money ASAP on getting access to custom parts *cough*panels*cough* and getting eye-tracking and foveated rendering nice and quickly.
I'll withhold judgement until I see exactly what powers Oculus traded for this, but this announcement killed my hype in one fell swoop.
P.S. Zuckerburg, assuming you are just providing lots of funding, you better not stick a Fb logo anywhere on the Rift.
