You can understand why they're pissed. However so long as OR abides by the original deal that, as they say, is that. Regardless this is the sort of shit that's only going to help contribute to the demise of crowdfunding. Either that or the model has to change and these guys will have to sell shares instead.


The problem is that selling equity in a Kickstarter-like manner is basically impossible due to American and European securities law - the only people allowed in at such a low level are "qualified investors" - usually very high net worth individuals who can demonstrate the ability to absorb the risks they are taking. I still think direct sales of equity are ultimately the way to go, however.

For those that backed the Rift - maybe, if you ask real nicely, you can get yours to come in a nice shade of Facebook blue... but much beyond that I wouldn't hold my breath on.

That's easily changed. This is the idea of the stock market to begin with, right? Companies trying to raise capital and if they do well, pay a return on that investment. They could treat it like penny stocks seeing the as the buy in's on these are well below what a qualified investor would dabble with anyway.

That's because they are. I like this guy.

well, that's up for debate... it's still just his opinion. some alt-medicine might actually be beneficial if proven.

In the words of Tim Minchin, you know what you call alt medicine that actually works? Medicine.

I envy you Blue, reading the books for the first time was fucking awesome! Also, I highly recomend Martin's Fevre Dream. Its a rather strange novel but I found it to be at least as good as anything from the Ice and Fire saga and miles better than any of the convulted vampire shit that passes for fantasy or science fiction these days...

The Wild Cards series is the way to go. Even though he's only the editor, some of the best writers in sci-fi fantasy have created such fantastic stuff for this series. They really need to make some CRPGs based on this series!!!

I find their Tamriel to be rather watered down and bland. The sheer volume of bugs at this stage is unforgivable. Over half of the quests I did couldn't be completed. On the orc island I think there were only 3 or 4 I could complete and therefore had no way off the island. This at 2 weeks before launch? Cereal?

Classes. TES are class free games. If they're going to do classes then they should have done all the classics instead of 4 crappy hybrids.

Console game. It's a console game with a console UI. I hate that shit so much! It's like DCUO. You feel completely crippled and limited playing games like this on the PC when you compare them to things like CoX or most any other PC MMO with a few hotbars worth of stuff at your disposal. Then they take the absolute worst aspects of Skyrim - the console UI for inventory, quests, etc and use that!!! Wtf?

Crafting is shite and far too hard to grind basic stuff. Christ, you can even craft multiple items! You have to sit there and click create item over and over.

100s of other people all doing the same boring quests as you - the chosen one - make it considerably less special.

I could go on and on pulling this game apart but it's not worth my time. They not only fail to leave the worst of TES behind and improve it, they fail to advance the MMO genre and actually move backward in many cases. They made just about every wrong decision possible in creating this game.

Bethsoft are fools for wasting money on this and instead should have worked on doing limited MP/Co-Op for the next TES title instead. This is just 100 mil - or whatever it is - down the drain.

Who would have paid $2B for the iPhone before it was released? Who wouldn't pay that now? Of course for every gamble that pays off quite a few fail, as the article points out, but I think it comes down to Facebook gambling that this will go further than anyone really understands at this point.

Yeah, but everyone needs a phone. This is a very niche product even amongst gamers. So Occulus has no patents and a tech that's easily reproducible by larger companies like Sony, MS, Samsung, et al. And FB paid 2 billion for this? That's just laughable - unless your an FB stockholder in which case it's time get rid of Zuckerberg.

First off Carmack is there because he wants to be, not that he needs the dosh. And I can guarantee to that right now that someone of his stature is beholden to no one. He may have had a contract with Rage but that's why he dialed it in. He sure as shit didn't join OR for the money and he very definitely came on his own terms and can leave as such. Johnny doesn't need the money unlike most of the guys working on this. The man is simply interested in the tech, and if it doesn't pan out the way he wants you can expect and announcement he's going his own way,

Until these guys actually deliver what they promise, everything else is moot. Worst you'll see is a handful of lawsuits which OR will now happily pay off.

Otherwise wake me when they change the world, lol.

got to recoup that 2billion somehow right?

That's depressing. Not what the picture shows but that the picture exists. It's disappointing that Facebook has bought Oculus but perspective is needed and this is only going to discourage content creation.

I fear some developers could really lose out by over-reacting to this and ditching Rift support, only to be left behind. Even if the Rift is a disaster, it has already shown enough that alternatives are surely being designed right now. Developing for VR is worth considering and that means developing for the Rift at this moment in time, even if you don't intend to include Rift support when you actually ship your software. It would be a shame if some really good content never got made because the developer got cold feet and missed the boat.

Time is money. So why would you develop anything for this unless it was guaranteed income? This is why I said, devs will not only not do it now, but expect to be paid for it unless they know it wil justify sales, which it won't.

Everyone here going to run out and buy Win8 for DX12 are they? Heh, let me know how that works out.

Someone said that about raising sheep in Farmville as well.... I also remember people saying texting was a Japanese fad...

And again did they have to wear TVs on their face to do that? No. I'm sure you believe that 3D wasn't another fad - once again - either right? So beyond a gaming or military/scientific/engineering application why would most people want one of these again? Oh right, they won't. Same as all the millions of assholes who bought Kinects for the the Xbox which all now sit gathering dust.

I could be wrong of course, I'm sure the Spybox 360 crowds will have zero problem adopting this. And of course they won't sit around gathering dust either after the initial 'ooh aahh' of the first two weeks has worn off.

You heard it here first, fellas, VR is the future. I mean its not like we've ever heard that before. Lol!

So beyond a very niche market of gamers to begin with. How can they monetize this? Military? Science? Engineering? Again very niche, very specific applications.

Can you really see your average household family of four sitting around the dinner table wearing these cumbersome things on their heads?

No, as we were talking about in the other thread, I think there's something we're not seeing yet. Possible potential long term stuff with patents acquired sort of thing. Does anyone have the inside track on patents the OR team has? Because that has to be it. There's no way they'll ever make this back selling headsets. There must be a bigger, long term plan at work unless - as Beamer said- Zuck just thinks it's cool and wants it. Which really doesn't go over with public companies. And for those who missed it, correspondingly, FB lost 1.6 billion in valuation today after the announcement.

Now, if they can deliver a Gibson/Snow Crash type VR I'm in, otherwise don't waste my time.
