Well, that rules out me ever getting an Oculus device. I had actually considered one following the release of Half-Life: Alyx but fortunately I held off.
There is absolutely no reason to require a Facebook account. I deleted my account years ago for good reason and under no circumstances will I ever sign up for a new account. Therefore this move would render the device unusable for me. This is an absolutely despicable move but sadly not a surprising one.
