Not sure why Palmer Luckey didn't consult Wil Wheaton before the $2 billion deal.

I wonder if he is available for financial advice, I'm thinking of investing and I need some help?

Battlefieldlover1331d ago

Good question, he didn't consult his financial backers either.....

Wil Wheaton this is Sheldon Cooper... You shall fall!

I'm still waiting for micheal Dorn's opinion. He is my moral compass.

lsujester1331d ago

That deal was decidedly not honorable.

I don't like Zuckerberg, I wont support OR. Just like I wont make an FB account.

You don't like Zuckerberg? May I question why specifically him the guy who is the most charitable rich person in 2013?

Suppose its one way to make money by selling personal data to multi-national corporations and governments.

Because it's the cool hipster contrarian thing to do, man. Get with the times.

You're surprised that he doesn't like a person that considers consumers/users of his products as dumb f'cks? I'm surprised that you'd follow someone like that whose actions show what he's all about.

Baccra171331d ago

And for those that were wondering here are the links to the sites that reported about Zuck calling his users "dumb f'cks."


And you guys want to put VR into his hands? Amazing...

JBSleek1330d ago

I don't care about him as a person I care about the product. Many CEO's are cut throat and very nasty but not once when buying a product have I ever said: "Wait is their CEO a nice person".

If Data says its a good thing, I'll be on board. Until then, NEVAH!
