Facebook now owns Oculus VR, which has upset quite a few people who were interested in the Oculus Rift. Markus “Notch” Persson has cancelled the the Oculus Rift version of Minecraft, for one. Others are wondering what this will mean for the future of the peripheral. Some are so mad that they no longer want one of the items.
Now, I think it would be shortsighted to make a decision to buy or not now, given the recent acquisition. If you do feel like you don’t want to support Facebook and Oculus VR anymore, but did already place an order for an Oculus Rift, it isn’t too difficult to cancel and get your money back. That is, if your Oculus Rift hasn’t already shipped.
An Oculus Rift pre-order can be cancelled and refunded if it hasn’t been processed yet. If you placed your order March 24 or 25, 2014, that means you can safely get your money back if you email Oculus VR’s customer support and provide your name, email, and order number. Bear in mind that this applies to Oculus Rifts sold through Oculus VR. If you bought it from another source, you aren’t going to get any refund
If you haven’t already pre-ordered an Oculus Rift, it may be smart to hold off for now. It isn’t that I don’t have confidence in the technology. I just think it may be smarter to wait, especially since Oculus VR has Facebook behind it now.
