Oculus Facing Political Backlash [Updated]

Kotaku has a follow-up to the news that Oculus founder Palmer Luckey is involved in the Nimble America social media campaign supporting presidential candidate Donald Trump. They report that some developers are cancelling Oculus Rift support, and others are reconsidering their interest in supporting the headsets. Online statements from SUPERHYPERCUBE and Scruta Games and email contacts with a couple of other developers use terms like racism and hate speech as reasons for changes of heart about the platform. The article also speculates that other developers may be tempted to follow suit, but are reliant on Oculus support to continue development. Ars Technica covers the same topic, noting that Fez developer Polytron has also chimed in. Ars points out that "there's no sign yet that developers are turning away from their association with Oculus en masse," and also note that not all of the games involved in this discussion were actually suited to VR in the first place. They also touch on Twitter buzz from consumers threatening boycotts. Update: A Facebook update by Palmer Luckey (thanks Kotaku) says he contributed $10,000 to Nimble America, but he is not the author of the "NimbleRichMan" posts, and that as a libertarian, he plans on voting for Gary Johnson.

Trump will probably win the popular vote but she'll end up winning the electoral vote.

the only votes Trump will win is the middle aged white non-collage educated vote and the xenophobia raciest vote.

Clinton had more total votes just for herself in the primaries than what Trump & Cruze combined. She has the white vote, she has the Latino vote and she has the black vote. She has the woman vote and she has the LGBQ QRXT(whatever) vote. If she can get all of those groups out to the polls in November, she will destroy Trump in both the electoral vote as well as the popular vote hands down. That's why the down ballot republicans are running scared ...
