I just dont understand why FB is going after it in the first place????

But it already did. It bought it. Now it's just lurking in shadows waiting the right moment to strike. Perhaps the first version even release relatively ad free and with not particularly invasive policies in place but you can add these with later firmware updates making sure that any game "properly licensed" to work on their platform will not work without upgrading to their latest more invasive EULA n stuff. FB is not a game company, it's a data mining company.

i think it'd been better if oculus would have propose themselves for sell and fallen even into the claws of ea (at least they have got a better vision about gaming then the social aspect of it) hands rather then a company with social implementation to the product which is a shame.however facebook could just back up oculus financials and thats about it like they said,but im still yet taking their word with a grain of salt

dont get me wrong while its cool that it could simmulate a class room with people all over the world etc,i think facebook has no place in snatching the the product and transfer it to their sole purpose because then it would be a disaster

Complete nonsense. Saying Oculus is a waste of time is one thing, saying VR itself it a wasteof time, I don't even...rolleyes.gif

as far as true PC gaming and indie projects are concerned I think we might be able to call the oculus rift a day at this point. Especially if it means co-opted advertising, drm-sign in, information gathering (stealing)

such disappoint

hopefully valve have their own fully separate PC gamer only VR headset.

I think actually that what you are saying is a reassurance to why ea couldn't do it on hardware based product,its because that it would break a new level of redicilously that never have been seen on planet earth

Notch - "And I did not chip in ten grand to seed a first investment round to build value for a Facebook acquisition."

I bet that Burns devil.gif

C'mon FB has never had any surprises to "founding" members. rolleyes.gif Sucks that Notch was "Lied to, by omission" when he was a OR Headquarters 2 weeks ago. Basically he feels like a valuation prop. And they want Minecraft...past tense.

The whole thing likely could have been avoided if someone gave him a hint and told to "shut yer mouth" while he was onsite.

That said, the OR company should not and is not focused on one time-waster game. Not when 2B dollars in total valuation is floating around. (Cash plus stock deal). This is just news fodder.

Next time they make something like this to go to kickstarter there needs to be rule that company wont sell the product to companies that base on getting people personal data. eg facebook, twitter, myspace and loads of others
