News Comments > Facebook Acquires Oculus, Oculus Rift Minecraft Cancelled
144. Re: Facebook Acquires Oculus, Oculus Rift Minecraft Cancelled Mar 26, 2014, 13:27 El Pit
 
Why buy Oculus?
For the patents? To either work on some own version of FacebookGlasses in answer to GoogleGlasses? Or to hinder/prevent the development of GoogleGlasses (an other augmented reality devices) because of some violation of the now acquired patents? Or FB heard that some other big player (MS, Google, Apple...) wanted to buy Oculus and they decided to rather buy Oculus themselves even if they don't need them? Just to hinder some competitor? Or to just expand into new markets and technologies? Or/and to impress their shareholders and the Wall Street vampires to add to their shareholder value? Or to get a foot into pc/console markets? Buy Oculus, buy Steam or ActiBlizz or EA, call it FacebookGames, build consoles (or just take some of the Steam Consoles), add the Oculus, and become a big player? Who knows... But saying that buying Oculus doesn't make sense for FB is actually what doesn't make sense. There are many possibilities for Big Money Facebook. I still don't like this, but I'm just a gamer.

You...that's....shut up!

Why not? It would make sense for FB. Buy Oculus, buy Steam, and join them into a Facebook Games brand. And all of us Steam fans will have been zuckerberged.

Guys, ask the government what data they need and offer them a deal. Sell your own private data for $39.99 per year or offer the gov a $4.99 monthly subscription. YOU should get the money, it's YOUR data! So why let M$ take the profit?

Cut out the middle man, eh?


That's the idea.

The question is: does the XBone support Dx12?

From the article at the top:

Direct3D 12 works across all the Microsoft devices you care about. From phones and tablets, to laptops and desktops, and, of course, Xbox One.

Thx, SpectralMeat. I need new glasses, a DirectX-12-optimized brain, and a "Brush up your reading comprehension" course.

The question is: does the XBone support Dx12? If not, will developers (who usually aim for consoles as the lead platform) care about Dx12?

After the end of the RMAH, ActiBlizz decided to learn from Somali pirates and take your best items hostage. Pay a ransom to get them back! The new service by Blizzard: RMHS - Real Money Hostage Service! Enjoy your single player games online, where you own NOTHING, not even the items you find.

Yeah, alright, just trolling, but this "better loot drops, but they get lost on our servers" thing is kind of funny.

We don't know PCs are covered, he could very easily mean phones and tablets - and from the look of it, that seems to be the case. Anyway, $20 for nothing but vagaries and nothing to actually show except some concept art? Pass.

As Blue has already quoted: "APPRENTICE: A digital downloadable version of the game, DRM free, for either Windows, Mac or Linux." It DOES sound like a pc version. Are there Linux smartphones out there? But no Android version? See, it's pretty much sure that a pc version (and a Mac and Linux version) will be released.

Hey Rockstar, where is my GTA 5 for PC? I'm waiting.

They're still busy working on the Red Dead Redemption port. GTA V will come out right after that port.

This has been making progress significantly faster than Star Citizen. Elite already has the cockpit, combat and docking implemented. We're still waiting on combat from Star Citizen. Hopefully SC doesn't end up being a poorly managed disaster ala Duke Forever.

I think the internet would just melt if that happened. The anger would be as from the Gods.

I thinks Roberts is already nervous because of what Braben has already released. He might consider working another six months on his dogfight module and add office coffee machines to the hangar module instead to appease his backers because of the next delay.

I've had that happened to me before. After reboot I re installed the new drivers again and everything worked fine.

Thx, SpectralMeat. That's what I just did. The first attempt via Geforce experience autoupdate didn't work, but the manual update after downloading the driver did. Not the best Geforce experience...

So I did the express setup for these drivers, aaaaand... it's still installing. For about 25 minutes now. I'd say it's time to reboot, uninstall whatever is already installed and roll back to the older drivers.

I guess they're working on making this playable on consoles. Press "x" to win!
I remember being totally confused by Homeworld's 3rd dimension. Couldn't find the enemy in the beginning, but after adjusting to 3D battlefields, I loved it.
