Remove Mandatory Facebook Login!
Remove Mandatory Facebook login in order to accept friend requests and use the Oculus app. I have never had Facebook nor do i want it. I just want to play vr. I don’t want to have to have facebook to enjoy my 500$ Virtual Reality Headset with my friends.
Using a social media account for access control to paid for devices and apps is just plain stupid!
It'll never go through but sure why not. Let's just hope most of us don't get bricked or something.
it makes me feel unsafe and uncomfortable linking my gaming account to my personal social media account. i have no way of knowing, with 100% certainty, that there is no way for someone who i add as a friend on oculus has no ability to determine what my facebook is.
if they find my facebook, they'll know everything about me.. my name, my face, my location, who my friends are..
from an operational security perspective, this is terrifying... why would i want to risk exposing myself to random people on the internet that i play games with?
girls already have to deal with some messed up stuff in the gaming community, and now we have to worry about being found because of oculus?
come guys, if you're not going remove the requirement, at least accept the fact that people are going to be using fake facebook names and allow it.. it's really the only way to guarantee the safety of your community.
Right so - I want to use it and not facebook it.
This was an awful decision to make, it creates random problems and worst of all forced us to use Facebook.
Seriously, please reverse this.
even people with real accounts are getting kicked off Facebook so....
Wife works for government and has alias last name so she won't be outed on social media. Can't purchase your product since we cannot have an account. What does 'account' in good standing mean?
Please remove did not agree to this back when i helped kick start you guys...dont abandon us now
I bought the Quest 2 but had to return it for technical problems. I am very unhappy about this facebook requirement. I will not buy another Oculus device unless facebook is removed from the process. I use VR to escape reality. Facebook is trying to build a virtual world that is 1:1 representation of the real world which defeats the purpose. Remove facebook and I will be back otherwise I'll never return.
Honestly, this is the worst part of the Oculus system. Why would I possibly want to use a social media platform i actively avoid JUST so i could play games? really dumb decision.
This is a bad corporate decision, who will buy game on facebook knowing a ban can lead to hundred of $$$$$ of games lost and a brick vr headset... It already difficult to understand why people would buy game on a exclusive platform knowing if they change headset they loose the games! Personally i just buy my game on steamvr. If i change company headset i still be able to play my games. Let just say it is not the best time to be associate to facebook... banning people for using fake account to use there vr headset is ridiculous knowing all the political fake account on facebook. The only thing i think it promote is piracy! In a format war in witch we decide the next vr standard, conviviality will win over lock down consumer. Well, company boss are master of their own failure, the rift and quest vr headset are really good as a product, sad that it's corporate greed that dictate the development of oculus now. Who would by a tv that you have to connect to facebook to open, it make no sense... facebook should be just an app that all. Vr is bigger than one social media... Personally i hate facebook... And i don't see a point to link my facebook account to a vr headset. Now that i think of it why should a have an account for a headset from the start. Oculus should make vr headset, facebook should make social app, and steam sale games. When one company take to much space it's to the detriment of the consumer. Price on oculus market are high!!!! If oculus market where reasonable in his price and was a open market for all vr headset I would have buy my game there. But it' not... A rift s is not a console, it is just a screen and i think that linking a facebook account it's a lot to ask for using a screen as fancy it may be. Anyway What i'm really angry at is the fact that because i have decided to stick with my oculus account i will be ban from new update on my headset that i have paid for. I Think that's the scandal. "You don't want to sign no update for you!" I think that's illegal in Canada under the consumer law. Well will they listen to their consumer knowing the history of facebook I HAVE BIG DOUBT! I suppose the next step is banning steam vr from oculus, greed, greed, greed!!!!!
FB account to play games LoL what a joke.
I have several Oculus devices and now you are telling me that in two years time you are going to steal them and my software because I want no part of FB s identity hoovering service. What a Joke.
How is this legal?.
Oculus, take a good look at yourself you know this is wrong.
This situation is going to lose you a lot of money, real gamers are not going to put up with this madness for long.
Let’s hope legal action stops this sham.
Ps I cancelled my Quest 2 order because of this madness.
Just cancelled my order because I realized the required Facebook. Deleted my Facebook a long time ago and do not ever plan on making a new one. Paying extra for a Vive.
Hey Zuck, stop sucking the fun and anonymity of VR.
I'm an owner of a Rift and a Quest headsets. I purchased many games and apps on the oculus store for a few years now, and I loved that ecosystem.
But with the new direction the company is taking I will not spend another cent on Facebook hardware or software.
I have a good standing Facebook account, but there is no way I will link my ability to play VR games to the standing of a social media account.
I purchased the Rift S, and was hoping to get the next Oculus device too. But if Facebook is required to login, I'll never buy another Facebook-made VR headset again. You might be happy to get sales anyway, but you're still losing revenue from all of the lost sales you won't be getting - and instead that money will go to your competitors. I'm sad you're choosing to go this route and hope you'll change your decision.
My Quest 1 arrived in August 2020 and now, 69 days later, my Quest is effectively bricked.
F you Facebook
