I liked TW2. I am saddened this won't have full game coop. I figured since TW2 had a coop mode that they had the knowledge in hand to make a fully coop RPG. It would be a slightly poor-man's Coop Skyrim that some dream about. But I'm still interested to see how this one turns out. It was a young team that to me have improved on every release. I'm totally ok with companies like that, they may have had a rocky start.

Oculus Rift is a convention device. It works great at conventions where the exposure is limited. Once you own it, you will realize that it is nauseating and impractical to use.

He's speaking from hands on experience folks.

i don't think gaming will be its killer app.

For us it would be. Most here hating it, if there was a landmark moment, we'd be there, like we've been with every other landmark moment.

My Daily OR Editorial: (Some based on posts here)

People stuck view finders in their face. If the effect is truly awesome people surely would stick their face in it. Save them money traveling the world by using this, surley people will stick their face in it. People act as if we haven't done stupid/weird shit before. If just kinky people use it, it will be huge.

All it ever takes for anything to succeed is a kill app. This does something like a Quake/3DFX thing to us, sold and sold.

For me it doesn't need to be the next big thing for everyone. I just need games enhanced by it. Anything else to me is gravy or useless.

All it needs to do is work as a device and not require things that make no sense with gaming. (This has been guaranteed(tm))

If it somehow makes porn better, then it's game over... it's the next big thing, no matter if everyone here hates it. Home Run - Touchdown - SCORE!!!!!

If it gets refined to glasses then attached to one's nerve... you are suggesting our future is cyborgism and not so far in the future. That's a pretty big step. Brave new world.

Zucks has mentioned a scope far and wide for this, so he is thinking big, like useage in space big as mentioned, he isn't missing that. It's a medium that allows you to be somewhere without having to be there physically.

I get the initial gut punch, we all had it. I get the sketicism to a point. But now imo it's all wait and see. It can be anything from way better because of this purchase to Oh-Hell No! But we really don't know at this point. To hate it in full now, makes you half empty.

Thanks for putting a huge dent into KS confidence, Palmer, you fucking tool.

Maybe you can laugh at it while sipping tea with Mark Zuckerberg.

Or treat it as a lesson as what can happen with kick starting.

If some small outfit is pitching something and if it hits it big, expect a company to buy them out.

Why? Because if you assume that, you'll be going in with the correct assumptions.

Everyone is still learning all the ins and outs of KS.

Uh oh. Ok after reading that interview, Im concerned. Anyone else notice how many times they try to shift focus from gaming to something they call the Virtual Reality 'Experience'? Yeah, looks like the faceshaft is going to be nice and deep.

No doubt they are talking more general now. But lets say the sale never happened. There was plenty of talk longterm that VR would go well beyond games and into all the same area's that are being talked about more since the sale.

If I can buy the device and install games ready for it and no other BS, to me that is the bottom line and to me it's the same. Names are of no matter, if you got the right product you got the right product.

I have on my PC, games and a link to Facebook. The two don't bleed into one another unless I pick Facebook games, which I've never even looked at. On the same system, totally walled from one another.

Huge plans for VR? Uh huh, I'm sure it'll be as impactul and lasting as 3D, lol!

I think he is referring to this link that I posted in the main Facebook/Oculus thread:

Reddit Sony Leak

I think this leak on reddit is what motivated Palmer to sell Oculus, because they knew they couldn't compete with Sony due to their investment in software to run on it. Reading that, and it makes me want to go buy a PS4.

But yes, it sounds like Sony has huge plans for VR. I grew up with the console wars, and I welcome the coming VR wars!

And that it made Facebook a little nervous to.

How is this a good business decision? I thought gaming companies made tons of money banning accounts and getting people to buy new ones? Interesting. BTW FYI this post is Trolling Free.

Well if you want to get back on the normal servers... you'll have to make a new user and use a new copy. Same as it ever was? Or unless the cheater is happy playing with other cheaters, most probably won't be. If for some reason I were a cheater and got banned, the last thing I'd do would be buy another copy of the same game. Unless money is no object, huge red flags would be going up in my head.

Um.. EA wasn't responsible for this. It was the devs. Fuck EA.

But actually, this is a pretty cool idea. Still won't get me to buy this overpriced, average game, but cool idea nonetheless.

It's under their umbrella. Works both ways with me. Don't worry they are still several 1000 in the hole.

Facebook are teh evil with our super secret info, therefore Facebook will be teh evil with our super secret info. Duh, Beamer, that's obvious.

You guys just keep believing in Facebook and giving them all your personal info. Buy an XboxOne as well if you don't have one already.

Facebook is all about getting your personal information and selling it, this is just another way to do that. That's the business they are in. Some of us would rather not contribute to that.

Perhaps right. But what if I were able to buy the product on it's own, and then go buy a video game that supports it from an indy. Say I only install each on the PC and play the game. Where is this selling of personal data entering the picture?

And just a little add... my pathetic data has been bought and sold infinite times already. To me at some point you are a sucker still buying me same info over and over.

That Oculus article sums up my feelings pretty well. I was initially disgusted but the more I think about it, the less I care. The noises they are making is that it will be business as usual - I fully expect this will prove to be bullshit in due course, but that doesn't matter as long as it's true now and they ship as good a CV1 as we expect. Get CV1 out, maybe CV2 and CV3 as well, prove that there's the tech and the market and then we can go our separate ways.

Qu all we need is for them to release quality hardware and dev tools, the game community will take care of the rest. If it isn't somehow locked into some weird manifestation, should be ok.

$2B is just insane. $50M I could see, maybe even $100M given that they'd gotten something like $35M in venture capital. But $2B???

The Sony statements Palmer released were very interesting. They are betting hugely in VR and Facebook can't afford to sit idle in case Sony strikes gold with this new tech. Sony seems to have mega huge plans in VR.

Reading the article and if you believe what is being said... this is probably for the best. Blue should link the Sony VR Roadmap. Interesting.

It's of some comfort to me that it's not MS, Google, Valve or worst of all, Apple. These are companies used to hardware who are more likely to think that they know best. I hope the owner of Oculus VR realises that their best bet is to stay the hell out of the way and Facebook are IMHO the most likely to do that.

After sleeping on it, I agree completely with you.

Oculus had to sell to someone. Sony was coming to eat their lunch. Palmer reads and posts extensively at reddit. This was posted on March 20th, at reddit which he most likely saw:

Reddit Sony Leak

Interestingly enough, Palmer has said that it took them 5 days of negotiations to do the deal with Facebook, which means the same day this was posted they began the process.

Why did Facebook want to buy Oculus? To ensure there was a PC VR option. Otherwise, Sony would have eaten everything, and VR as we know it would be console exclusive and in Sony's walled garden. Facebook would be left out in the cold since they would have pushed Playstation Plus. Why use Facebook when you can connect with all of your friends and see them on Sony's Farmville VR?

Facebook just saved PC VR, and their future. If you are a PC gamer, this is the only solution that I can think of that will see mainstream VR adoption for PCs. Who else could Oculus have sold to that could have competed with Sony? Apple? Microsoft? They would have all insisted on walled gardens for their hardware, just like Sony. The other two tech giants are Amazon (virtual storefronts? not required for the future of the company) and Google.

Ultimately, it probably came down to Google and Facebook as viable options. Google has invested in Augmented Reality instead of Virtual Reality, whereas Facebook needs it to stay relevant. Google just didnt need Oculus, whereas Facebook did.

I get some of this.

If VR is going to dominate, it would be on the PC sooner rather than later no matter OR or not. It's not like one company is just going to own something as big as what they envision, like one company owning all of TV was never in the cards. So lets say Sony beat OR to the market, there still wasn't a PC answer, OR (non-facebook) would still have been that. The Ps4 may have had an answer, but the PC didn't and that is what we are waiting on. However if the PS4 system will be all that, perhaps a console could be in my future as well.

What it does show me, is the effect is amazing otherwise Sony would run from it instead of go gaga over it. It's good to hear Sony is going the full 10 yards, their previous offerings were rudimentary.

This was a shocker, but in the end if it goes favorably towards gaming, it can all still workout. We'll see.

Not understanding why you guys are so dead set against the game.

Make it simple a lot of people are turned off by the same mmo over and over. It's pretty much any gaming forum you go to, other that the games own gaming forum. Actual General MMO Forums, have been over run with negativity for years due to stagnation.

From the horses mouth:

"Nvidia played up the gaming possibilities of the new board after CEO Jen-Hsun Huang introduced the Titan Z "

I won't argue it can or will be used for something else. I'm still sticking with there are a lot of people with so much cash. They'd spend 10 grand. Possible a 100K.

So lol back at yah!
