Jonathan Blow Finds it 'Difficult' to see Positive in Facebook Buying Oculus

VRFocus - Braid developer Jonathan Blow has commented on the news of Facebook buying Oculus Rift creators Oculus VR, stating that he finds it ‘difficult’ to see how the acquisition can be a good thing. The social networking giant recently announced that it would be buying the virtual reality (VR) specialists for a total of $2 billion USD, although has pledged that it won’t radically alter Oculus VR’s plans in the near future.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm not going to lie...I think Facebook was probably one of the worst financial partners for Oculus to jump into bed with, but I still think that the technology would have flat-out crashed and burned without ANY financial and marketing assistance. I don't know what was going on behind closed doors, but if Facebook was the only promising entity willing to pump money into the project, then I guess there was no choice.
