I'm not sold on VR. It's been tried for so many years and so many times. Facebook is going to turn into the next Google. Buy anything they find cool or interesting.

It's a shame, because I was so interested in it. Was.

This is good news for anyone interested in the Rift. The now have endless resources to develop and build out the product.

I own the Dev kit and it is very promising tech. I just hope they keep John Carmack on so they can keep it moving forward.

I want my holodec! Maybe this will get us one step closer. Maybe I would be able to set up a VR experience with some of the cuties on my FB friends list. My intentions are honorable I promise

We'll see....I can imagine not just gaming but as DiscountCleric said having a virtual seat at a ballgame rather than just watching on TV is intriguing...the sports packages taken to the next level! Hopefully facebook's investment will provide resources to continue development or quicken the pace and perhaps add some creative uses for the tech.
