    I love reading the comments of this news over other forums and on Facebook. Just watching the entirety of Oculus cremate itself.

    Well, time to return my Quest for being defective. This is not the product I initially bought.

    Honestly, though, you already needed some kind of account to buy stuff for that thing. But regarding a$$book I got a fake account from years ago. I'm covered.

    But I might as well buy the games on Steam (to play them on my glorious PC Master Race Pimax Vision 8KX I am glad I backed, because that way I saved about 40% on it compared to its conventional price) and then pirate them on the Quest. :)

    Facebook will automatically close any account you make if it isn't tied to a real identity (such as a verified phone number). So that option is out, unless maybe you buy a pre-verified account on the black market...

    People are a lot more negative about this than I thought.
    Sorry to be uninformed, but why is this bad? Just don't trust them with your information, or is there more to it?

    I dont know why people are upset... they specifically said "for full functionality" this is the same thing as Sony , Nintendo, or Microsoft you have to make an account and buy subscription for "full functionality"
    Seems to me you just need to make a fake Facebook account or merge your oculous account with a dummy Facebook account.

    Shouldn't surprise anyone by now. Sony told us in PS3 are that we don't "own" our hardware despite paying for it lol

    Whats the point of doing this exactly? If its brand recognition then damn it then I don't want one because I don't want my dad to have full control over it.
