VR has become more appealing and accessible with more models of VR headsets available. The Oculus is still one of the more expensive models but today Facebook made a very unpopular decision that make convince potential customers to avoid the device. With Facebook soon requiring a Facebook login to play games.


Today, we’re announcing some important updates to how people log into Oculus devices, while still keeping their VR profile. Starting in October 2020, everyone using an Oculus device for the first time will need to log in with a Facebook account. // https://t.co/SMeDOXgehN

Since buying Oculus in 2014 many gamers feared something like this would happen. Facebook did elaborate that you don't need to merge the Oculus account with Facebook until January 1, 2023, but afterward, a Facebook account will be required.

Facebook has become increasingly unpopular as the platform has been pushing insidious ads. From my personal experience, Facebook ads have included ads to convince users to contact representatives and persuade them to allow online gambling on sporting events, World of Warcraft gold farming sites which is against Blizzard's TOS, and lots of political ads featuring Donald Trump.
