Anyone else used to hate Oculus?

I hated Oculus for no reason(kinda like how we all hate that one spoon in our house). I think I started to like them when they released the Rift S(i love plug and play headsets that don't need base stations. Was consider getting the Odyssey+). I completely fell in love with them when I found out about the Quest. It's exactly what I need. Anyone else felt like this?

    Rift S and Quest were released together.
    You started to "like" Oculus when they handed their PCVR headset to another company (Lenovo), and the Quest is exactly what you need?

    I suspect you fall in love too easily and will revert just as easily.

    Other way around for me. Loved them until the Rift S came out. Maybe give it some more time and some more software updates, you may change your mind. If not, then keep having fun.

    To be honest, I chose a Quest when shopping for a VR headset because it was the cheapest option. Well, if I hadn't ended up paying $300 more then I should have due to impatience and Amazon scalpers being the only ones I could find with  a Quest in stock. I'd done research though, and knew that Oculus was working on a way for the Quest to be used for PCVR too. I don't regret my purchase at all, even with the fervor currently being raised over the impending account login change.

    I'd been a bit concerned about the Inside Out tracking since I'd heard it wasn't very good. But more recent (at the time) reviews said it had been much improved. And so far I've had very few issues with it. I'm thinking of picking up a Vive Cosmos as well, or maybe the Vive Cosmos Elite. Probably the Cosmos though since I think I prefer inside out tracking. My playspace takes up pretty much the entire living room since I live in a small apartment. As such I'd likely have to wall mount the lighthouse trackers, but getting permission to put nails or screws in the walls is like getting a root canal without anesthesia. Painful, and prohibitively difficult.

    Nope, never even heard of Oculus until 2016, then I stumbled on this new thing coming out called CV1.  Last time I saw VR in real life was way back i the early 90s and I played this terrible game called Pterodactyl or Dactyl.  It was horrible.  CV1 look absolutely amazing to me, like I stepped into the Holodeck from Star Trek.  Holy crap had it changed since 1993, I still can't believe what I'm seeing sometimes.  I like Oculus alot, but I'm moving on to Reverb G2 because they don't seem to have much interest in PCVR anymore, but if they make another headset that wows me I'll buy it.  The G2 just looks like something in my price range that is actually worth upgrading from the CV1 for.

    With Oculus leaning more and more towards Facebook I had noticed that my Oculus sales have pretty much stopped....and I don't blame them.  I wouldn't want any Facebook sleaze either....

    Not sure I'd use the word "hate", but there are things I appreciate less than other things. 

    Then again, botflies ... I might really hate botflies  :D

    G2 will be a laughing stock once the varifocal tech ships, but I am all for debate if you can back up your beliefs.  Has hp shown any kind of varifocal prototypes?  Or were their engineers too dumb to outmaneuver Doug lanman, carmack and Abrash and let Facebook get all the cool patents?  Game over.

    When exactly are we going to see all this new stuff though? We heard about Half Dome sometime ago now and all we see is an Oculus Rift S that's made by Lenovo, if we are talking PC -VR. Compared to a Rift S the HP -G2 looks the better VR headset right now.

    The Rift 2 will have most of if not all of the features that the Half Dome prototypes have, and we'll see it either next year or 2022.

    I only found out about the Quest like last month. I thought it was like an Oculus Go 2 or something. I don't care it Oculus handed the Rift to Lenovo, I just like inside tracking. I love the Quest because I can play 6DOF games without a pc. I'm going to buy the Quest first, then build a budget PC instead of buying an expensive. That's what I meant when I said: "exactly what I need."

    Unfortunately that is all they want. They don't care about what you want to do while signed in, they just need to have you signed in.

    Hating a company, any company seems a bit weird. I know that there are people who actually hates Apple, Facebook, Microsoft etc... Usually bigger companies.

    I'll give you the name of a Cowboy building firm I once had and see if you think it's weird hating a company after he's finished the job :D

    Are you telling me you like all companies?

    It's okay. I forgive you. People who delete/edit comments because they were wrong are assholes.

    I don't hate them for real. It was more like a fanboy hate. Like "LMAO Oculus is gay and it sucks Vive FTW!!!"

    I dislike seeing the word hate on forums - and for it to be used against a company - this is incredibly unproductive, and for what is just a hobby for most on this forum, is a dangerous and insightful term. Non of what the corporation or its owner is doing is worth such an emotion.

    I am also interested in the term "...Anyone else used to hate Oculus?"
    Is this a typo, or a more insidious claim of being "forced" or "encouraged" to hate the company? Some posters on this forum feel that any criticism of business practice is an "attack" against the company. We have worked hard to show that opinions can be had on both sides of the isle and that there is no definitive view. Best get off the hate train, it is self-destructive.

    I think he means "used to" as in past tense--he hated Oculus in the past, but changed his view over time. It's in his OP:

    He's just being honest, and some people seem to dislike blunt honesty. There are those who prefer to illustrate "hate" with their actions, but publicly denounce the word "hate" in what is a rather obvious ruse.

    Some posters on this forum feel that any criticism of business practice is an "attack" against the company.


    And there kevin goes again. Taking another opportunity to derail from the main issue and launch his attacks against posters who disagree with him. Seems like... hate.

    Anyone else used to hate Oculus?

    There are a ton of posters who hated Oculus in the past, and still do. In fact, the reason my Forum Score is so high (currently number 1 ranking) is the direct result of that hate. While I prefer to have conversations about collaboration and constructive dialogue on innovation, there is just so much hate on this forum that I end up in long-winded battles and long-term feuds with those who "hate Oculus." Hence all my upvotes by the non-haters.

    Welcome to the community! It's a lovely place. <3

    He's using past tense. I do wonder sometimes whether English is your native language? If not then it would explain your almost constant grammatical errors. Or maybe you suffer from a mild form of dyslexia? 🤔

    Not having a go or anything, it's a genuine question.

    Thanks @snowdog and @nalex66 - was wondering if I had the wrong end of the stick, but obviously he may not be a native speaker so I missed his grammatical errors.

    Though I still stand by hatred and blind obsession in any post just leads to trouble.

    No dude, the OP didn't have any grammatical errors. He used proper grammar and spelling. snowdog was asking you if English is YOUR native language, and was referencing your own grammatical errors. Not the OP's.
