Quote from Divinius
I understand that argument, and if someone like Valve had been the buyer, I wouldn't be sitting here lamenting. Even if it had been Google, I'd have remained cautiously optimistic. But Facebook? Trust me, nothing good can come of this.
Besides, even if you trust Facebook to not make a royal farce of this, it's not going to fly well. People have far too much of a "love/hate" view of Facebook, and gamers are typically in the "hate" category. That alone is going to stifle their success (Notch immediately jumping ship is a prime example), and that won't help them to be able to sell whatever they end up peddling.
I understand what you're saying, but i'm personally okay with it as long as I can use the Rift for gaming--I heard valve is in support of this situation by the way. The modding community is vast and diverse enough anyways that there will still be Oculus support for a crapload of games whether other companies support it or not.
This is not to say i'm not skeptical of Facebook's involvement, i am VERY skeptical, however, I have reason to believe that the Oculus did not just go down the drain.
