That's just a BIG letdown.  That means upcoming Games with OC will need a FB account. Or if you buy the OC you can have it with FB as needed. I could puke.

two things in life i've managed to avoid so far - google and facebook. and was realy looking forward to occulus coming ou so could play in a virtual world without having to worry about virtual "friends" instead of real onest - but now looks like fb are going to screw even that up.

what is coming with this? every time you get a kill or complete a quest will you get thumbs up or down on it? will every where you go in a game be followed by fb? bad enough with google following you around in real life withough fb doing the same in virtual life

i look this wrecked because i've got GIST.
Whats your excuse?

I thought for sure this was a troll post. Jaw meet floor. $2Bn is a ton of cash.

It's sort of interesting to think what this means for the KS folks. Did they already get their payout? Will they continue to see support? I suppose you can call this "the" KS success story.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

I have a FB account and nothing is following me in my virtual life. It all depends upon the user how much info you want to share with the world. You are exagerrating.

Read carefully; they are allowing Oculus to operate independently from within Facebook. This is a huge vote of confidence in the platform and the possible applications Virtual Reality may have not just in gaming, but elsewhere too. The whole idea of "presence" kind of goes hand in hand with Facebook's direction of bringing people together.

This only means the road to VR got a little shorter.

not surprising Google is buying everything as well, like Boston Dynamics that build military robots

fb knows what you do on the social network, but it also tracks where you go when you leave it. unless you use something like a facebook disconnect add-on for your browser. but then given that one i know of is for chrome it's a bit like asking the nsa to look after your privacy for you - and we know how much they respect peoples privacy - even their own countymen.

 

howt wrong with being paranoid these days

- I am absolutely floored by this, $2 billion - just imagine

- I have no idea what to think at this point. I do not have a facebook account - I had considered it, but when I hear the horror stories and just the fact that people can dip into your personal life, I just wasn't interested. I don't feel like I have anything to hide, but considering the judgemental nature of people, I just always felt it best to keep your personal information personal.

- Oculus sounded like a neat idea, but not if they are going to use it to twist peoples arms and create facebook accounts, and certainly not if they are going to make VR farmville.

- I don't like to put to many eggs in one basket, but Sony please save us. Please deliver VR - Dark Souls - Diablo - EqNext - GTA - Destiny - Final Fantasy - I want to dislocate my neck trying to dodge attacks, I want to puke as my mind is tricked into believeing I just fell off of a cliff.

No adds? What magical unicorn version of Facebook are you using? It's covered in ads.

 

Also, ever got a candy crush/farmville request etc? You realise they pay Facebook a fair share of money to allow that to happen right?

 

Facebook is worth 100+ billion currently.

I'm confused as to what Facebook would do with owning the Oculus. I don't see what ability it will open up for their site. Maybe it is just an investment, that made them own it as well? I don't know.

Maybe Marc sees a great investment in Oculos?

I thought so too. He thinks FB is creepy as he Tweets his message. That's just weird to me. It sounds like a lot of attention whoring and pandering to the perpetually indignant on his part imo.

Its a 3 years hands off deal - apparently.

 

So we got some breathing room for VR to grow and become popular and in 3 years time switch to a different Head Mounted Display distributor who isnt chained to Facebook.

 

Still the announcement left me in shock. I simply cannot see this ending well no matter how much some try to assure me otherwise. To have hope for this all to work out well you must trust in Mark Zuckerberg - and I cant do that.

If Facebook is involved, you can be sure they are plotting ways to invade your personal privacy even more. After all, that is how they make money.
