It’s Time to End the Oculus Outrage
OculusVR, the makers of virtual reality technology who were recently acquired by Facebook a short 18 months after their $2.4 million Kickstarter campaign, has been the target of much ire from the tech community in the last week.
The umbrage the company is facing has many apparent causes, ranging from frustrated Kickstarter investors wondering where their piece of the $2 billion pie is, to outraged gamers worried about the prospect of ads cropping up in their soon-to-be favorite VR video games. People across the web are jumping on the “Facebook is evil” bandwagon faster and with more fervor than I have personally ever seen anybody jump on any bandwagon.
It’s creating the distinct feeling that people are knee-jerking, and it needs to stop.
