While it doesn’t seem like the virtual reality headset revolution truly swept the land as industry experts were expertly expecting a few years ago, there are certainly plenty of gamers who made the jump to VR.
Unfortunately, if you’re one of those who did purchase a VR headset and decided that the Oculus Rift or Quest was the way to go, you’re going to have to accept its Facebook overlords that now rule over the hardware. On Tuesday, Oculus announced that all of its users will first need to connect to the device via Facebook. The company also said it plans to end support for all Oculus accounts not merged with Facebook accounts by the start of 2023.
Naturally, everyone is delighted with this move, and by “delighted” we mean “are taking to the streets with pitchforks and torches because of their sheer hatred for Facebook.”
“How do they take something so cool and just accidentally evacuate their bowels on it?” one user said. Trust us, this was no accident.
