I do not see the bad news in this.

No, they didn't. The $2B went to buy ownership of the company from the VCs and Palmer and Nate and whoever else had a stake in Oculus.

 

That said, Oculus do now have access to FB's large reserves for funding, so they do have a lot more than they did pre-acquisition.

They also have a lot more contacts and power behind them - trying to get an answer or a concession out of a vendor is a lot easier if you represent a huge company rather than a small one.

True.

 

I really want Oculus to fly in the bosses of whomever can give them the best custom screens and give them some demos on their best prototypes and say "it's nearly there, we got a few hundred million, anyone want to help?"
