Oculus Rift Selling 'Just Fine' After Facebook Buyout, Company Claims

VRFocus - Oculus VR has claimed that sales of its second developer kit (DK2) for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset are doing’just fine’ following news of Facebook’s $2 billion USD acquisition of the outfit. The statement was made by the company’s Community Manager on the official Oculus Rift forums in response to claims the device would ‘flop’ after the sale of the company, which was announced earlier this week.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well it's selling to developers primarily at this point why shouldn't it? I could even imagine that more developers want it now that Facebook aquired it ...because they think the platform as a whole and of course the chances of success will be bigger.

It sucks to be bought by FB but it's just fine we did it for the ca$h.
another company that will end up like Rare (among others) but Sony have their VR and it's shaping up to be a success.

Sony, Valve, now Razer. Plenty of companies that are putting gaming first. And one can only guess if there is another gaming first entity on the verge of announcing something.

How many are canceling? Many of the users in the Oculus subreddit canceled their orders.

shouldn't be a problem with the 2$bn they got

Canceling an order at this point is meaningless. If they don't buy a rift for the next 3 to 5 years on a large enough scale that will mean something

Oculus is obviously going to do well. It's just a shame fb is attached to it now. Just bc the company sucks doesn't mean the product will.
