Yup. I’m still a sarcastic douche.
Before I begin, can I just give my appreciation to Mr. Zuckerberg for making me write about something I just posted about the other day? Here I am trying not to look like a one-issue blogger and now I have to talk Oculus again, this time with a side of reactionary drama and before my other post was scheduled to go live.
Ok, now that’s out of the way. You all heard the news, right? Facebook grossly overpaid Oculus VR to hand over ownership of the hardware startup and announced big plans and high hopes for the future of VR, not only for gaming but in medical, business, and social media applications as well. This isn’t an entirely new move for Facebook, they’ve bought out plenty of smaller companies before and absorbed their resources to increase their reach, but if Zuckerberg’s announcement is to be believed, that isn’t exactly what they’re going for this time.
