Notch was working with the Oculus team to bring Minecraft to the Rift – and then the Facebook news hit. He immediately cancelled the project.
I definitely want to be a part of VR, but I will not work with Facebook. Their motives are too unclear and shifting, and they haven’t historically been a stable platform. There’s nothing about their history that makes me trust them, and that makes them seem creepy to me.
And I did not chip in ten grand to seed a first investment round to build value for a Facebook acquisition.
It seems like Notch sums up the general response to Facebook acquiring Oculus pretty well.
