Forums - Gaming Discussion - Facebook buys Oculus Rift for $2 billion

well someone (i.e. facebook or a google) had to get in before micrososft did. From facebooks perspective they probably wanted to block out google more.

Yeah people dont realize how massive things like VR tourism, VR cross country or international meetings, etc are going to be.

If done right VR has the potential to change everything.

AR will destroy VR in the mainstream.

Why do you think that?

Yes, I'm guessing this as well. Facebook has a history of buying apps/ programs to compete with other businesses like Instagram and the like. Most have been failures, but they also just recently bought a texting app for 19 billion dollars - one that Google also bid on. Facebook is probably anticipating this to be the next big thing and wants to get a leg up on the competition.

Only 400mil was in cash, the rest was in Facebook shares. I assume the $19B deal would have been similar.
