Minecraft-Oculus Rift Deal Spiked Over Facebook Acquisition
Minecraft mastermind Markus "Notch" Persson doesn't like Facebook. I mean, he REALLY doesn't like Facebook…
Persson had been working on an agreement to bring a version of his ridiculously popular game to the VR headset Oculus Rift — but Tuesday's announcement that OR was about to be bought by Facebook for a reported $2 billion was enough to sour Persson on the deal immediately.
Of course, Oculus Rift's loss could still end up being Project Morpheus' gain, so a VR Minecraft could still be on the way. But it just goes to show you — don't get on the bad side of a guy who calls the shots for one of the biggest gaming phenomena of the new century.
