    Where were you when gaming died? Facebook buys Oculus Rift saying bullshit like "GAMING FIRST HURR" when they themselves have a shitty social game base Anita and her Social Justice Crusade ruined gaming journalism Devs being okay to release half finished games and sell it at full price Nintendo just keeps getting shit thrown at them no matter what the fuck they do. Kickstarters are now becoming scams

    I think you're giving Anita way too much credit there :P Also, you are overgeneralizing waaaay too much, making it sound like ALL or even MOST devs are okay with released half finished games and sell it at full price, or that mos kickstarters are scams. Not saying they are all winners of course, but so far a lot of good had come out of kickstarted project, not just bad shit. Also, Nintendo is just reaping what it has sown. You claim they are shitting on them no matter what they do... Yet what exactly has Nintendo done in the past 6 months? they released one pretty good game for the Wii U (Tropical Freeze) and that about sums up all that the Wii U has going for it 3 months in this new year.

    Yeah, gamers pretty much give her more attention than she could have had if they just brushed her aside. At least indie games have (mostly) reasonable pricing, and at least for me, they take RISKS. That's the problem with managing two systems, all the support has been going to the 3DS (which I might add its mostly appealing because of the amount of Nintendo exclusive content). With the Wii U is harder because it requires bigger teams, bigger investment and a lot more of development time. But yeah, its like a gamecube. Maybe it'll be appealing by the end of its life when it has 20 something high profile exclusives. The most I can say is, the controller is at least more practical than the kinect, it has retrocompatibility (a plus if you didn't give Wii a chance, since the system also supports Wiimote and Nunchuck), retro exclusive games, and a serviceable UI and internet browser. As for games is a platformer haven, at least having a higher quality standard of quality in comparison to the competition.

    That reality of this deal is pretty strait forward. While VR can no longer be seen as something gamers and tech guys can have exclusive claim to, Oculus related tech will get to a mainstream market in a much shortened time. I am wildly guessing, but I'd say this brings a future when we all become part of a cloud, A la the ending of Enslaved, 3 years closer to happening. Save us Monkey!!

    Massive disappointment, but as someone below already said, I feel even worse for the people who supported this when it was on kickstarter. I wonder when they drop the 'don't worry, we won't ruin this, honest!' routine and stuff copious amounts of ads into everything. Also, does this mean if someone wants to make a game for OR, they'll need Facebook's go ahead?

    How duped must the people who crowd-funded this feel? They backed this ambitious project only to have these guys run off w/ $2 billion in their pockets and the Oculus with an uncertain fate.

    I feel like anyone who expects more than their respective reward tier from backing a Kickstarter is kidding themselves.

    I doubt this will end well. What zuck says now may not be what zuck DOES later. Epic bought of the amalur guys probably saying "let's make some cool shit" and then said "you guys disappear now". EA ran deadspace through the other side of the world. Colonial marines was the biggest and worst surprise of the century. Case in point, we have been around this block waaaayyyy too many times to keep easily trusting in what's initially given to us. There is no way I'm viewing this as a good thing right now.

    I wish I shared your faith in Zuckerberg, Lucas. It's just hard for me to trust the word of a man who practically sells peoples personal lives to ad companies... But hey, that's not a conversation for here... So, I'll put on my naive hat and say "yippee" this can only be good for the Rift, gaming and humanity in general. Zuckerberg only sees people as commodities. He is also a clever business man, win-win for him I guess...

    And if you Sign up for or use Facebook you agree to let him do that. Also Google does that too.
  • Moondoggie1157 - March 25, 2014 4:49 p.m.

    Which is why I stay clear of Facebook. And hey, I don't care if google knows what my search history is, I'll let everyone here in on a little secret... ITS PORN! And GR... And foodnetwork. And CNN... And BBC... And sometimes online shopping, various stores and shit. You now have the same information as google. Don't downplay facebooks transgressions, just because people are gullible and ignorant.
