Sony has their own thing. We'll be fine guys. I'm sure microsoft and possibly razer/madcatz or even steam will make their own if it kicks off

Even a troll can shed tears when he sees the future of VR technology being demolished.

These people made a business decision.    
We can't blame them for selling their product. They're set for life now. Sure they could have kept it, worked for another 30 years, make a lot of money throughout their lives then sell it, but they decided to just take the money and never have to worry financially ever again.   
I'm pretty sure I would do the same if someone offered me $2 Billion for my invention.    
It's like the people who hate on Robert Pattinson for doing Twilight, sure everyone hates him for his role, but he's set for life and there's no way any of us would turn down a role like that or an offer like this from Facebook.

Or maybe, maybe this means that Oculus will get more funding. Maybe it's just me, but I haven't noticed anything mind-blowingly different with companies after Facebook has bought them, so we probably don't have anything to worry about.
People just freak out like this because they want the gaming community to be unique or whatever, I can guarantee you that most of the people whining about this do not even own any sort of Oculus product.

tbh, i don't really agree. this was always going to happen, there was ALWAYS going to be a large group investor, and think about how about cut throat and hard it is to keep the social media website systems alive. i mean, i remember a time when MySpace was the biggest thing, then it was Bebo, then it was Facebook, and in a few years, it'll be something else, so he's probably just trying to tap into a market that he knows will be huge, and to be honest, be it luck or talent that got Facebook so huge, with Zuckerberg's money and influence behind it, it could be massive.

now i've never been a fan of the Rift, I think it's a gimic, but i can HONESTLY understand why people are pissed off about this, but we don't know what Mark will do with it. might just be that he's going to pump a huge amount of his money that he made from Facebook, into producing an awesome VR system that utilizes the Rift's every feature perfectly. he might ruin it, just as easily, but i think that jumping to conclusions at this point is kinda dumb.

TL;DR, i hate this as much as the next person, but I can fully understand why he did it, and i think that we should see what he'll do with it before he just blanket say it's **** .

You faggots are over ******* reacting. Luckey even stated that their company was going to still be independent.. If anything, facebook is just giving it some backing and get some revenue cause hey, you gotta save a dying social site some how. Maybe if you people would have taken the 10 seconds to google an article about it and actually do a little research, you probably wouldn't be jumping on this little bandwagon. for those that actually did research, good job.
