"The platform to end all platforms." .... Bullshit. Bro, do you even holo-deck?
The holo-deck is VR.
'Words can be a decisive illusion unless proven by the facts' in other-words the Oculus has upmost potential but to say it can overcome something is touché
Everyone was in such and uproar and angry about facebook buying them but I think it's in good hand and I'm glad these reputable figures like Cliffy B and Michael Abrash have shed their two cents on the situation in a positive note. I am among the group that believes this can be a good think. I certainly don't think they will ruin it.
Wait to see,..........
Nothing else to do at this point.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
I think that as long as Facebook just gives them funds and doesn't mess about with Oculus too much they should be fine. In fact, I think they will be better off with the extra funding because it is simply too hard to fund this expansive project without a large corporation of some sort backing you.
They'll be looking for ways to monetize this technology and inject ads into the mix.
Such a big, fat cost to buy it will have to be recouped.
Oculus Rift's firmware will change every 2 months, will suddenly start playing in-game ads, and add magic spells to Call of Duty as an "improvement". Also, your friends will randomly appear and disappear.
I think he left more because they offered him more money, but who knows. Oculus is a great thing for most people, I think it really might be but for myself and quite a few others that have double vision and other issues with their eyes, this is kind of useless. I hope not all games take this route, maybe an option to toggle the VR feature.
Who knows, they might even make this work for those with vision problems as well.
well if it goes trough looks like i got to get myself a oculus rift :D
One word, Money. His other co-workers at Valve left for Oculus but Oculus probably couldn't afford to pay Abrash what he wanted so he stayed at Valve. Now Oculus has FB money to throw around so Abrash is jumping on board. Is this what Oculus is going to do with all that money, poach?
I can't help see this as nothing less than a HUGE slap in the face for the hundreds of thousands that crowdfunded Occulus VR to start with.
Fans of the tech were prepared to fund its development, but Occulus just shat in everyone's mouths and took FBs cash.
