Oculus Rift Titles Being Pulled

I'm curious with Facebook pulling Oculus Rift Titles from people. How are they compensating people for this? People paid for these games. I know there are two major titles getting pulled that they have already advised people to delete from their headsets. Marvel Powers United was 60.00 if you pre-ordered and there is another AAA title being pulled that I own. Is this going to become the norm moving forward? You buy a game and you own it until Facebook says?

Paid $40 for MPU, and got $40 refunded even after 2 years. Doesn't make much sense keeping the servers running when no one plays the game. If more persons supported PCVR, this probably would not have happened.
Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz gpu boost, 11 GHz mem speed); 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 961 Evo M.2 SSD 128GB (for OS) + Samsung EVO 860 4TB SSD (for games) + Toshiba P300 High-Performance HDD 3TB (for games); Win10 OS; Valve Index and Oculus Rift CV1, the latter nearly always using super sampling 2.0.

I'm glad you got $40 dollars back. Are they going to give that to everyone. They are also pulling Ripcoil. On the refund part supposedly they are only giving refunds if the games were bought recently. They are pulling Marvel Powers because the license is expiring and they are not going to renegotiate it. My point is still valid so now do we only own are games as long as the device owner says we do. This isnt even the publisher. So what game do they get to pull next? Again if was paying 5-10 dollars for these games that would be one thing. These were full priced games.

So update supposedly they are still refunding for the following games: Marvel Powers, Ripcoil, and VR Sports Challenge I will provide another update once they actually issue the refund.

Not sure if any other Sanzaru games are being pulled because the agent mentioned Sanzaru

Sanzaru also made Asgard's Wrath, I wouldn't worry about other Sanzaru games being pulled - at least no yet 😉

Getting back my $40 and getting 56GB free space was not a bad deal. I never liked MPU much, but the short prologue singleplayer part was great. Got Ripcoil for free with my CV1, again only played the tutorial as I am not into multiplayer games.

Sanzaru was exactly what he said and I thought about Asgard's Wrath Immediately. Marvel I'm sure was due to licensing fees. After telling me they were going to issue a refund they emailed me and instead said something about store credit, wouldn't tell me the amount and told me to check my account. Haven't checked it yet but have a feeling they are going to rip me on this because they didnt know how to work out the licensing properly for the characters. Think about I'm sure MS isnt paying Marvel for all the games they have over and over again.

New one hold the train  now there saying there not sure what they are going to do after they told me to check my account for store credit and there was none there. Then when I stated that they said they were going to issue store credit and asked how to navigate to the ticket under the new website layout the support staff couldn't tell me how to navigate there.

Yep thats typical Facebook fashion....they reversed course and gave me 9.99 store credit for 3 games.....guess Zuck spent too much money on the election in November....this is why everyone needs to jump off this sinking ship....think about if you are one of the people who refuse to use facebook....your device becomes a f&*king paperweight next year...f&*king garbage
