I don't use Facebook. I have in the past, and had issues with a stalker ex. I'm generally off social media. I've been wanting to get into VR for a while and was really excited to pick up the Quest 2 last week.
When I saw that Facebook login was required (or maybe I couldn't figure out how to get around it), I decided I'd just use a "Fakebook". I've been enjoying the Q2 and have spent about $50 in the store. Now I'm seeing these posts and tweets about people's accounts getting permabanned for not using their real identity or having enough activity to seem like a legitimate account, and losing access to all their games with no avenue for recourse.
I'm worried if I keep the headset:
I'll spend more money in the shop over time, just to have my account banned and lose access to all of the games
Without games/apps, the headset will be useless but I'll be past the return window to get my money back for the headset itself
This is partially just venting. I'm glad people are talking about it. It's so shitty that I need to "integrate" my real-life details just to play a game.
