Oculus Rift – What’s this week’s buzz?

This week’s buzz in the tech sector is all about the Oculus Rift.  March 25th marked an incredible announcement – Facebook has just bought Oculus Rift.  You heard right, the social media giant has taken over what many think is the future of VR.

This is alarming for many, especially myself, who are against the moves that Facebook has made in the past few years.  It feels as if everything the Oculus Rift originally stood for, during the Kickstarter days, has been thrown right out.  Mojang’s Notch has summed up many peoples feelings with a quote of his own:

“And I did not chip in ten grand to seed a first investment round to build value for a Facebook acquisition.”

Only time will tell how this pans out.  Valve and Sony both have strong VR prototypes in the works — so perhaps this just limits one more entry into the game.
