I don't understand why people are already hating on Oculus Rift, maybe this will improve the Rift a lot. We'll just have to wait for any changes.

I agree, if Facebook doesn't implent anything Facebook related functions or requirements in the OR it's all fine.

They will just finance the OR and help them developing the ultimate VR solution ( affordable ) and for everyone.

This has gone way too far.

 

Its not even been a day. People just heard the news and then freaked out.

Wait for more news, and read the stuff that is out.

 

This should allow more investments into software, custom hardware, cheaper overall HMDs, more staff, larger/easier production and distribution.

 

Everyone has taken the news and in less than a day written off a company that has been building up its reputation for what, 2 ish years?

Facebook wont kill Oculus, its all the people over reacting and abandoning it that will harm it.

I'm not saying its a good or bad thing, people have the right to react the way they want to, to the news. Original Backers especially have the right to angry. 

 

Most people aren't scared Facebook will kill Oculus their scared facebook will taint it down the line. If Oculus ends up not going downhill then great, but if it does everyones fears will be confirmed. 

 

There are many valid points to why Facebook isn't a good company for buying VR. They don't have the best track record.

Lol I'm sure it would be far worse if it was the end of the world. The internet is just doing what it does best, spreading the news everywhere.

I would ask the backers what they wanted since they are the investors.

Because no one believes it won't be tainted by Facebook monetization. If it doesn't, that's great, but the odds are probably the same as winning the lottery.

They will compromise their independence because giant corporate money.

All explain please why the OR would be a fail or anything is there aren't going to be any Facebook-things in it?

I think they will eventually add something. Why wouldn't they want to put some sort of Facebook thing on it? Your telling me Google bought all those robot companies and they are not going to put Google or use it for Google? But only time will tell I guess.....
