Facebook is trying to get into the gaming business, and not relying solely on Facebook app games to do so...

EA's a game publisher, Facebook is malware of the societal structure. I don't get the comparison at all

facebook way worse than EA.

We know EA cheats its customers, but so far anyways EA doesn't openly sell your personal information and it doesn't track every website you go through via the "like" button on websites.

Pretty much this.

The people who have no understanding of how any form of business works are the ones freaking out here. This was arguably one of the better things that could happen for Oculus, as I'm sure capital is running low as they're getting into the later stages of development. More money = better product = better end-user experience.
