Facebook buys Oculus Rift.
From 2 milion kickstarter to 2 billion buyout. Anyway, Facebook will ruin it like pretty much anything they've bought. So our hope is now on both Valve and Sony?

Oculist Rift's development team purchased by FB; implications on Steam and gaming as a whole?
"Facebook announced on Tuesday that it had reached a $2 billion agreement to buy Oculus VR, the maker of a virtual reality headset, in a bet that social networking will one day become an immersive, 3-D experience."

NYtimes article about FB's purchase [www.nytimes.com]

What are all your thoughts on this - and how will it affect Steam and the realm of gaming as a whole?

I really like the idea of one of the Mrs work friends sending me a candy crush request while I'm immersed in a virtual environment.

Facebook wants it so they can compete with Google Glass- the entire project is shifting its focus to a social platform.

This is going to kill the Rift--and they deserve to have it fail for selling out like this. Notch already cancelled his talks with Oculus, and people are cancelling preorders.

On the bright side, Valve worked with Oculus, and SteamVR apparently was going to be a thing, then wasn't because of Valve working with Oculus, and I'm certain it will be a thing again

Zuckypoo just prints money, now. The man is able to get what he wants, and I can't stomach it.

Facebook wants to get all the stuff people like , so that people don't like it anymore .. that's contra-productive , but facebook hasn't noticed yet that no one likes facebook xD

I still can't understand why Facebook wants the Oculus VR, what are they going to do with it... Also, will Valve quit with the support/development of the Oculus VR in there games, or will they just continue? What do you guys think?

Like Arthur said... I'm hoping that SteamVR will become a reality now. I don't particularly like Sony to say the least.

the OR was not about the first 10 mins. it was about a new game genre. like DOTA mod gave birth to MOBA
