In an interesting (as in wtf) turn of events, Oculus Rift got sold to Facebook for 2 billion dollars.
Didn't see that coming...
"Under the terms of the deal, Facebook will pay $400 million of the acquisition cost in cash, with the remainder made up by 23.1 million shares of Facebook stock (which closed today's trading at $64.10)."
I can see how this might make some people sad.
“We’re clearly not a hardware company. We’re not going to try to make a profit off of the hardware long-term…but if we can make this a network where people are communicating, and buying virtual goods, and there might be ads down the line…that’s where the business could come from.” - said M. Zuckenberg cited by dsogaming.com
Markus "Notch" Persson has cancelled Minecraft for Oculus :)
"We were in talks about maybe bringing a version of Minecraft to Oculus. I just cancelled that deal. Facebook creeps me out."
