Notch Cancels Oculus Rift for Minecraft because of Facebook

by Chris

Minecraft’s inventor, our beloved Notch, does not like Facebook. So what? Lots of people are “creeped out” by Facebook.13769247725158fwm87low29_1380485159797

Well, it sounded awesome that Minecraft was talking to Oculus Rift with the idea of adding Virtual Reality gaming hardware support to Minecraft but unfortunately that deal is now over.

It turns out Facebook has just recently announced it bought the Oculus Rift company for $2 billion. Facebook has been buying all sorts of things for billions recently. It started with Instagram, then What’s App, now Oculus Rift. What is Mark Zuckerberg planning over there?

We were in talks about maybe bringing a version of Minecraft to Oculus. I just cancelled that deal. Facebook creeps me out.

Kotaku was good enough to point out there is a Minecraft mod that can support Oculus Rift unofficially if you’re lucky enough to have one of the cool headsets.
