Yep, the Google / Android thing was mentioned, cyber, and it's a very good point.
The success of Android around the World is kind of indisputable now.
btw, did you have any say on the Facebook acquisition, or allowed to sit in on any of the meetings?
I now think this is a great thing, it just took time to get over the initial shock.
For me, it's mainly because I loved the idea of Oculus being a small (mainly) independent start-up which grew from Palmer's great work.
Initially, it felt like we were all a part of Oculus in some way, no matter how small.
And now it seems we have to let go of that concept.
I second what pierreye said - Oculus felt like it was a company made by the VR fans for the VR fans, but the Facebook thing has killed some of that passion slightly.
Also, you must admit that this is a bit of a "set back" for a lot of the early supporters and KS pledgers who thought they were investing in the original concept of Oculus as a trailblazer in VR?
All in all, it sounds like the correct contracts have been signed, and this can only be a good thing for VR as a whole.
It has seriously made me think about cancelling my DK2 order, as the CV1 is promised to be much better now.
I'll keep on with the order though, as it sounds like a cool piece of hardware to own, and may even be a historical thing to own one day.
I still hope for good things to come. Palmer's comments on reddit have given me renewed hope that all will turn out for the best.
btw, cyber, Oculus / Facebook has been on practically every major news channel today. Sky News, Fox, CNN, BBC, you name it.
