Video Game News- August 19th

By Frank Hyden

From A Facebook account is required for the new Oculus VR headsets, starting in October. And older units will work without a Facebook account until 2023. I’m not a big VR guy, but this is bullshit. A lot of people feared Facebook would do this when they bought Oculus and now it’s come true. I imagine a fair amount of people will take this but I also think a good amount will say no, and refuse to have anything to do with Oculus. Or maybe I’m just hoping that’s what will happen. I don’t like Facebook, they profit off your information without your knowledge or consent. I could list other reasons I don’t like them, but I don’t want to turn this into a long screed so I’ll just say this is bad news.
