    Ok... Doesn't bother me I'm quite patient. I want a good product that isn't rushed. I know a lot of you want it now now now, but these things take time. More power to Oculus for going about this the right way IMO.

    With it being owned by FB, you can bet that FB is integrating the necessary "user agreement" to somehow sell you. I just feel used. LOL

    'You need to sign in with your Facebook account to use this device!' Instantly ignored by thousands who hate Facebook, and refuse to use the service.

Call home to report what everyone's doing, and try to better judge what would sell via VR.

    Man that would be a bad move... I guarantee I will not buy if that is the case. I'm sure many others would feel the same. I can't imagine they would actually do that, but you never know...

If they aren't careful one of these "copycat" competitors is going to beat them to market, and even though their product won't be "perfect", they will capture enough of the initial market of VR enthusiasts that it will kill occulus. They did a great thing with this technology, but they are quickly losing their biggest advantage. Glad the guy that came up with it cashed in already so he won't be left penniless by Facebooks stupidity.
