Great, now I can be forced to look at the code vomit that is FB html in 3d!

In related news, Notch cancels VR version of Minecraft seeing the announcement above.

Although he didnt give much reason, other than FB is 'creepy', I Applaud Notch's fuckin balls and doing what he thinks is right or what he wants...not just what will make him money.

Man, I can't think of a company i'd less like to have bought them out. They will take it down some social networking path or some bullshit.

I think the PS4 is going to have an Occulus type device... may even beat the Occulus to the punch.

John Carmack working for Facebook is hugely saddening.

Hopefully Sony will do something good with their Project Morpheus.
