Oculus may not have started to sell its product but it has already got a buyer which has bought  the startup.The deal is comprised of $400 million in cash and 23.1 million shares of Facebook stock. Facebook announced its surprise purchase via a blog post. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also revealed Facebook’s reasons for the deal. "Oculus’s mission is to enable you to experience the impossible. Their technology opens up the possibility of completely new kinds of experiences,“ Zuckerberg says. "Immersive gaming will be the first, and Oculus already has big plans here that won’t be changing and we hope to accelerate.”

Oculus first  showed its prototype in CES 2014 where it got good response after which it announced its developer version which is yet to ship.
The response from hardcore gamers and developers has been predictably reactionary, with Minecraft creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson immediately cancelling an Oculus Rift version of Minecraft. In fact he got so angry about the whole deal he then went on to write a blog about how virtual reality is going to change the world but Facebook is ‘creepy’.
Many ordinary Kickstarter backers have also been demanding their money back, but as you might imagine gaming isn’t really what Facebook is interested in.

‘This is just the start’, wrote Zuckerberg. ‘After games, we’re going to make Oculus a platform for many other experiences. Imagine enjoying a court side seat at a game, studying in a classroom of students and teachers all over the world or consulting with a doctor face-to-face – just by putting on goggles in your home.’
