    (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!)

    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.

    i dont know why facebook wants the Oculus but i think the acquisition is a stupid idea and i hope facebook screws up badly and everyone there gets a plague of warts.

    i am NEVER touching oculus.

    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    Facebook wants to use the Oculus to create more social networking. For example, using the Oculus so students can gather in a classroom while not physically being there.
