this will be so interesting :D 

This is going to be one hell of a WAN Show....

 

I agree so much with you, wont miss it for anythign!~!!

I dont see what the big deal about it is... Yes Facebook baught the company... And continues to let them do the exact same thing they were doing...

The problem is: ill quote notch 

 

 

 

"Facebook is not a company of grass-roots tech enthusiasts. Facebook is not a game tech company. Facebook has a history of caring about building user numbers, and nothing but building user numbers. People have made games for Facebook platforms before, and while it worked great for a while, they were stuck in a very unfortunate position when Facebook eventually changed the platform to better fit the social experience they were trying to build.

Don’t get me wrong, VR is not bad for social. In fact, I think social could become one of the biggest applications of VR. Being able to sit in a virtual living room and see your friend’s avatar? Business meetings? Virtual cinemas where you feel like you’re actually watching the movie with your friend who is seven time zones away?

But I don’t want to work with social, I want to work with games." -Notch

 Zuckerberg state in his initial letter on the subject that he intend to let Oculus VR finish developing the product for games and then acclimating it into more social things.

And while there is no proof of it yet, I have little reason to doubt that that's what he plans. Yes he stated he intends to use it for social integration as well, which is something I've been incredibly excited for as well as game. VR isn't just for games. It was always going to go much further than that. 

 

The NSA has proven we can't trust them with our secrets, Facebook has done nothing to prove we can't trust them with VR.

Saying and doing are two entirely different things, as I'm sure you know.

At what point do you consider development to be 'done'?

Oculus was exciting to many because it was VR for the sake of gaming and was being developed in that direction it's expected for some people to not be as enthusiastic about it anymore because it's quite probable that the direction of development will change under control by Facebook.

Regardless if someone can judge the growth of Oculus under FB as bad or good, there is a fair chance that it will become something that was never favored by the original backing crowd, alienating the original support base.

And would you really put something in the hands of someone who has not proven that they can't handle it compared to someone who has proven they can handle it? I'd prefer the proven option rather than 'not disproven' as an argument in support

The notion that you can trust Facebook period is arbitrary based on who you ask and for what reasons.

I never wanted some Frankenstein gaming social technology, I wanted a gaming VR machine. If another company wanted to license and build on the technology of that finished product, I would be completely fine with that, but this is not the case; hence I would state that without concrete proof in the future my interest in Oculus has fallen dramatically.

That is a crucial aspect to look at; what was the original utility and what is the purpose of the end product?

The worst thing that happens is it goes to crap and becomes horrible + gets re-purposed to something else.

 

 

IMO, the pros to this far outweigh the possibility of it going to crap.

 

Facebook has a disgusting amount of money to throw at the project if they decide to continue the work, it could be finished + more in depth, and have more supporters+services behind it.

 

You know on the wan show the other day Linus was talking about using the oculus platform+possibilities to build a way sell virtual tickets to the Superbowl, hockey games, sports events.

He mentioned you could "be" the quarterback in the game, if facebook decides to give this what it deserves, we could very much be closer to that amazing experience that could be delivered with this product.

Addressed in second post. I would probably stay cautiously optimistic.

There's no reason to be optimistic or pessimistic. Until they actually prove what they're doing, there's no reason to lean to either side.

 

Facebook has the money to put into this that could make it absolutely amazing, but they also have the possibility to turn it into a monetized abomination. 

 

We have no idea where they're planning on taking this, or what they're planning on doing with it.  And until we do, I don't think we should be so quick to judge.

I will go under the assumption that facebook will be facebook and a big business corporation will act like one until, like I said, I see some proof of anything.

Facebook isn't an average white label supporter, you can draw a lot from the situation based on the fact alone that it is facebook.

For that of a few reasons I will stay cautiously optimistic.
