Well, here's one time I'm glad I wasn't able to afford something, I'd be even MOAR 'miffed' had I actually given money to those sell outs or had the skills to have put my time into developing for those sellouts.

 

I mean, seriously.. why not Logitech or Razor or SOMEONE that's not utterly despised and just so... evil. $2BILLION? If you're gonna be sellouts, do you have to be so greedy, couldn't you have settled for a few million and let a semi decent company have it?

It's all the folks who've put their programming skills and such into it that I really feel for, their the ones who've been ripped off by this as they're the ones who made the product/platform worth so much.

 

Utter bastages!

 

SO, what VR headset can I look forward to now as I will NOT be buying a rift just life I use telegram now and not WhatsApp, use Twitter and not FB or G+!

Most of this was from mining rig, hence the scewy specs (especially PSU)

It could be fantastic or horrific, but something better then oculus could come around too.

Things are going to be interesting. Was waiting for the Oculus Rift consumer version 1, but that doesn't exist now-so I'm going to wait it out. Only the Facebook Oculus Rift CV 1 will be available.

 

The enthusiasts have been wiped off the map now - no cool free VR programs for the Facebook Oculus Rift by the people for the people, money always comes first and the money lies with the masses.
What type of applications will the commercial developers will make for the masses? No idea.

 

Also-all the people stating that the consumer version will come out sooner, I don't think so - since they are planning on making 'custom' parts I do not expect them to be able to get it out for at least 2-3 years,so expect it at around late 2016-2017 instead of the 2015 date they had set.

Around 6 months to a year to get their new engineers up to speed and research, and another to find some factory to manufacture their product. Money does help speed things up, but not by as much as you think.

What? There will still be the exact same programs on the device, facebook purchasing Oculus won't change that.

At release this is going to be a very enthusiast level product. I mean its going to have a greater than 1080p res, 90Hz refresh for the best experience and more. The "masses" probably won't be able to push that sort of hardware.

Thats very high specs, Its not suddenly become an entirely different product.

 

Its been stated that the internal Roadmap is entirely the same, so the end of 2015 date at the latest they specified is still true from what we know. Pushing it back to 2016/17 would just be stupid at this point.

Except Facebook itself. In case you use it, can you tell me when was the last time you used it for something social that is not Candy Crush or other game related thing? 

 

Lel... I use it everyday to conact people/friends , to see what party's are nearby and check in , I'm still in highschool and we have a classgroup and it's easy to share homework , it's a good social platform to share pictures etc , okay the ads suck and messaging is kind of broken but other then  that there's no beter replacement... More people use it then you have hair on your body

You are correct in that people who bought the F.O.R will be provided the same hardware. I don't know how enthusiastic the tech crowd is about them now though, 

here is a quote by them

 

We assumed that the reaction would be negative, especially from our core community.

 

(source:http://thesurge.net/oculus-said-they-didnt-expect-such-negative-reactions-to-facebook-buying-them/ ).

 

There are going to be a lot of people buying it because of Facebook logo attached to it now, trying it out with their old laptops-not sure how they will advertise it though.

 

But we will have to see and wait, still-good for VR,bad for their branding. It's going to  be quite a battle to see,looking forward to more info.

Let the VR wars begin.

Thinking about it more, I don't think it's completely bad news. The funding should help to make better Rifts, and it has been stated several times that Oculus will work independently within Facebook.

Privacy is my main concern, and how they plan to monetise it. But we'll come to that bridge in time, right now, for the short term, this is good news.


Tea, Metal, and poorly written code.

What on Earth gives you the idea that Sony would've done any different?

 Maybe because Sony is a big Japanese company and didn't start from Kickstarter?

Корче кончил я в нее, не знаю как она но тоже затихла. Повалился на нее отдохнул, алкоголь брал свое, разморило. Но она

видно не хотела останавливаться, попросила меня на спину лечь и давай мой хуй ротиком стимулировать. Довольно быстро

привела его в рабочее положение и раком встала. А вот это скажу я вам было просто изумительно. Надя раздвинула руками

свою толстенную жопу, открывая путь в пизду, хотя нет при виде сзади это была не пизда, а пиздища !! И я вставил туда.

Сначала мне показалось что я потерялся в ее заднице, но когда все больше и больше при каждом толчке утопал в ней, в ее

жирах и теле, я был просто в восторге. Мял попу, тискал сиськи – получал кайф. Кончил не в пример первому разу довольно

быстро. Потом она так скромно оделась и ушла к себе. Утром мне было конечно противно что трахнул такую бабу, и до сих

пор встречая ее или ее дочку на улице сразу всплывает перед глазами огромная трясущаяся задница……

I don't think you'll want that in English. According to Google Translate that was a porn advertisement!

Awsome, not only do we have kitchen cabinet spammers, now we are starting to get porn advertizement spammers as well ( shaking head ) Don't these people now that their are forums out there that would be useful to their line of work to get their advertising out there?

Sony? 

 

You mean the company that is selling off assets and buildings just to keep going? 

Yea...

 

But that doesn't change that it's big and didn't start from Kickstarter. And still according to Wikipedia it has a lot of money.

Are you seriously comparing the environment and era in which Sony grew to what Oculus is dealing with? Really?

Please, learn how to business before comparing Oculus and Sony.
