Cool, now no one has to worry about oculus running out of money or going bankrupt.
This is fantastic news. The'll be able to complete the production model with their own hardware and start producing them for sale to the public soon! I've heard they're going to be selling them at cost. :D
Luckily I was able to get my money back right when the deal was done.
no why :(
If facebook is known for anything. its their [censored]hardware
"Facebook" isn't getting "hands on" with Oculus VR and has been very clear about that. Oculus is developing their own hardware now instead of relying on already existing (mostly smart-phone) hardware because they couldn't afford to develop their own custom hardware before. Which means the production model is going to be far better than it would have been previously.The Facebook buyout is making that possible by infusing Oculus VR with an enormous amount of development capital.
Of course you can ignore all that information I just gave you and keep being a sarcastic cuss if you like.
I think it's cool that Facebook acquired the company basically just to fund something that they believe in. They just want to make sure the funds are there to make it happen, not to take over and ruin it. I'm excited to see where this leads.
Good, now it will actually see the light of day to the mass consumer market.
And so it begins
So the brainwashing can start !
Aww crap! Just as I was thinking about buying one too. >_>
I'm Really excited about the oculus rift. I think it has potential to be a big part of the future of gaming. Imagine playing triple A games such as Battlefield 4, Call of duty, Mirrors Edge, etc. with oculus rift support. It would be an unforgettable experience,
