John Carmack breaks silence on Facebook’s Oculus acquisition


After almost a week of silence, legendary game developer and Oculus CTO John Carmack has finally voiced his opinions on Facebooks planned acquisition of the virtual reality headset maker. Replying to a blog post by chiptune musician Peter Berkman, Carmack says he wasnt expecting Facebook to purchase the company he joined last August. I wasnt personally involved in any of the negotiations, he adds, I spent an afternoon talking technology with Mark Zuckerberg, and the next week I find out he bought Oculus. Regarding criticisms voiced by Berkman and many onlookers — chiefly that Oculus abandoned its early supporters and was operating only to be acquired — Carmack disagrees.
