Well … Never Saw This Happening

   As you’ve probably already seen, since everywhere is talking about it, it appears that Facebook has bought Oculus Rift for $2 billion! It would seem that they’re interested in helping bring the Rift to their current user base. Because you know that while you’re trying to enjoy VR you want those Facebook notifications to interrupt you. It appears that most of the gaming community and developers aren’t happy about this happening. The previously announced Minecraft Port has been canceled because of this. Now that’s one game that would rock in VR. As expected the founders are quite happy with their $2 billion buyout.

   In other gaming news, it would seem that Defiance is going to be having another DLC released soon. I don’t know about you, but I want the show back. Now.

   Also interesting is that Microsoft has now, for the first time ever, made the source for MS-DOS and 1990 MS Word available for free! I wonder how many variants will be crafted from this by the open source community at large.
