Facebook acquiring Oculus VR

Zuckerberg announces acquisition of maker of the Oculus Rift

Mark Zuckerberg just announced that Facebook is aquiring Oculus VR, the maker of the Oculus Rift Virtual Reality headset.



He says that Facebook is interested in Oculus Rift's potential in immersive gaming, but also going to make it to be used for many other experiences, obviously also as new kind of communication platform.

The Oculus Rift is currently only available to developers, a customer version isn't there yet, but Oculus VR recently announced their upcoming devkit 2, making steps into that direction.
