You guys know they'd lose all the progress they've made on interesting people if they stopped working on the games hardware, most likely?  Also:

Which means it won't be crap immediately, it'll just be crap if you want to use it for anything that is not a game and that isn't already being made for it.

It's known as the Oppai-Kaiju effect. The islands of Japan generate a sort anti-gravity field, which allows breasts to behave as if in microgravity. It's also what allows Godzilla and friends to become 50 stories tall, and lets ninjas run up the side of a skyscraper.

Hey, how do you do that thing that makes it so when you mouse over a word you get a text box? The BBC sheet I'm looking at isn't helping. Reveal your secrets damn you!

I'm kind of suprised that the occulus rift thing isn't dominating the Sad and WTF threads too. On reddit people are acting like somebody died.

Here's the thing- OR was probably going to die anyway. It proved that VR was popular, but Microsoft, Valve, and Sony have actual experience selling game hardware.

The fact that Occulus Rift is probably going to get canceled in the next few months is just a mercy at this point.

Why do you think it's going to get canceled?

Honestly, I don't think this is particularly terrible news. They're still going to be developing it for games, but now they're just also going to put it to other uses.

I'd sell out for 2 billion.
I'm not sure I would.

For some reason, money's never been a huge attraction for me. Yes, having money is useful, but gloating at my brother aside, sitting atop a pile of cash was never something that made me particularly happy or satisfied. Of course, enough money to live and save up and go on holidays and stuff's good, but I wouldn't know what to do with one million pounds, let alone two billion.

I would be thinking about the kinds of good things I could do with that money, especially after receiving it from people who probably weren't going to do good things with it.

Huge quantities of money does have an appeal for the kinds of things I could do with it. Mostly right now I just want to be rich because I think financial security will make me feel a lot safer about where I am...

I came here to post about the Oculus-Facebook thing, only to find myself beaten to the draw. Now I have pre-empted rage rage.

Edit: at least now Facebook will literally be on your face.
