Worst threats against the creators of Oculus after selling the company to facebook
Last week we witnessed another surprise transactions made by Facebook. If the acquisition of WhatsApp shocked us because of the huge amount that divide social network last transaction with another surprise – the product . We can not say that the responses generated by transactions were particularly positive. This is normal, as Oculus VR entered this world through public funding site Kickstarter, which has become a huge hit. It seems that fans can not let it go, and now moving toward a serious outburst of displeasure.
“We expected a negative reaction from people, but do not expect to get so many death threats and phone harassment on our families,” said the founder of Oculus Palmer Lucky. “We know that will prove through actions, not by words, but such nonsense are unjustified, especially when directed at people who have nothing to do with Oculus.” He adds that such a reaction was expected, but now beyond all limits. “We expected knee-jerk reaction from people who do not have the information that we have, and would rather not have it,” says Lucky. “We expected a negative reaction, but does not mean that they are deserved. My main goal is long-term success for VR, and not short-term sentimental feelings.” Still Lucky in mind that fans have too little information if he was in their place, you will not be pleased. ” Knowing what the audience knows, probably [would not be satisfied]. But knowing what I know, access to technology, which gives us this deal? No.”
In response to the rising tide of discontent, John Carmack , founder of Id Software and current CTO of Oculus VR, explain why the transaction is not a bad thing. “I did not expect Facebook to buy the company. I`m not involved in the negotiations. I spent an afternoon with Mark Zuckerberg, which discussed the technological issues, and the next week I found out that he bought Oculus”. Creator of some of the most iconic games can not agree with the statements that the company abandoned the people who believed in Kickstarter. And why Facebook? “I think that Facebook sees the big picture right, and we will be a force that will help us to realize our ideas.”http://szlifestyle.com/sz/2014/03/31/worst-threats-against-the-creators-of-oculus-after-selling-the-company-to-facebook/https://i0.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/sz_oculus_creator.jpg?fit=640%2C439https://i0.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/sz_oculus_creator.jpg?resize=150%2C150TECH NEWSfacebookLast week we witnessed another surprise transactions made by Facebook.
