    (I know I'm overreacting, but god damn. This sucks. I've been hyped for the thing ever since I tried it at NYCC 2013. Now I don't even want it because I can't help but think they're they're going to stick a bunch of Facebook connectivity on it and shit. I just want to play VIDEO GAMES in first person!)

    Wasn't planning on getting one before, still not planning on getting one now.

    I like reading about all the people who think this is the end of the world, though.

    Doesn't matter to me; I'm not going to judge Facebook's involvement until after I see what they do with it. Facebook seems to be on a maturing spree and zuckerburg wants to build a Newage Apple/Microsoft. I imagine that this could actually turn out to be a really cool joint venture.
