On the heal of the news Facebook bought Oculus which created the Oculus Rift are you still going to buy one, or did you ever plan on buying one?

 

Personally, i'm still buying one.

What I find funny is that people are abandoning something ground breaking just because Facebook owns them. For some reason I don't have the same hatred for Facebook as everyone else does. If it's an amazing product i'm going to buy it regardless of who owns it and i've been drooling over the Oculus rift ever since I saw it.

What's a bit scary is that none of our views matter when it comes to advertising (oculus, etc..) to the general public. We're a scarce minority that cares where such technology is heading.

If it is a good product and I find a use for it, sure.

I was going to, but now there's no chance in hell, not going to support or give any money to Facebook.

Their loss. The interest they garnered for their product was effectively destroyed with one announcement.

If the vision for the Oculus Rift is still the same I don't see the problem. I think it is silly people think non-gaming uses for the Oculus Rift will take priority over gaming. There is a development kit for it people can do what they want with it gaming or not.

The General public does not hate facebook as much as a bunch of you seem too.

Why the hate?

I've never liked Facebook, not their "products" or procedures, and I don't trust them to actually keep Oculus independent (Since they're already talking about sticking ads in it)

Edit: Best thing about Oculus now is that they've got Valve and Sony working on tech.

Edit 2: And yes, the general public doesn't dislike Facebook as much, but that doesn't mean anything.

The overwhelming response to this suggests otherwise.

 

Rather, the Oculus Rift's target audience wasn't "the general public."

I hate facebook anyway... but I don't post there often..

 

You never know... Facebook can share your data with others that can be pulled from VR device.

Except the general public is not going to be in the VR market for a very long time, if ever.

 

This is still a waste, but Oculus are by no means the monopoly or even leader in terms of VR. Valve's internal VR prototypes are said to be leagues ahead of Oculus's.

Not talking about profile visibility..

 

Talking about Facebook sells your data to other companies.
