Well, this isn’t really all that surprising… Facebook makes most of its money from ads, so of course their director of Ads wants ads on all of their products. It’s just sad that they want to push them into the faces of people that want to use the Oculus.
The Oculus Rift was pretty much a consumer darling since its inception. Launching on Kickstarter, fans quickly rallied around the device and the company that was trying to make it. However, upon the news that Facebook had purchased Oculus, that love turned to fear and sometimes anger.

I’m still sure that I’ll get the Oculus CV1, though I’ll also probably take a good hard look at the Vive, both look interesting, I just hope that games will have cross-device compatibility.
