Oh my gosh, don't remind me.

The Oculus VR team is dead to me now.

I think with those gimmicks, like with most of them, people just power through it. Who the hell gets a 3DS game because it's in 3D? You get the game because you want Fire Emblem or Pokemon or whatever. Same with a Wii, you get it because you want Nintendo games (God knows why nowadays, they're pretty horrible).


I dunno... if that were true, seems like the Wii U wouldn't be doing quite so poorly.


It's doing poorly because there's no games for it. The whole stupid motion controls and tablet controller abortion didn't work. People would probably get past those things if there were quality games on the system...but there isn't.

The Wii U flopped because no one, not even any of Nintendo's own marketing departments, knew what it was supposed to be.

Sony must be partying right now. They just realized how many people NOPE'd out of Oculus. All eyes are on them.

It actually amazed me that Facebook worked so well... I mean, I understood what it was for when it was for students only, but after it opened up for everyone, it was just like Myspace only with fewer ugly glitter covered profiles. Myspace was nothing but a way for advertisers to target their ads at people and Facebook pretty much refined that.

Even worse, if you're one of those people with a ton of "friends" on facebook and you want to reach all of them, you have to pay to ensure that they all will see it.

Sony does seem to have some really good dumb luck lately. First MS steps in it with that horrible E3 conference and stupid ass business decisions. And now the ORVR gets bought up by a company that won't exist in 10 years.

Well, 2 billion dollars is a lot of money. I can see why they sold out.

Even if you don't have a ton of friends on FB (I have less than 80), still very few of your friends actually see your posts. Facebook as a communication tool is one of the crappiest I can imagine, but unfortunately, I have friends and family across the country and around the world I couldn't easily keep in touch with otherwise.
