Is Oculus VR future better with, or without Palmer Luckey?

I'm just curious on everyone's thought's about this. Do you think Palmer Luckey being forced out of Oculus by Facebook was a bad thing for the future of Oculus VR hardware?

Do you think we have lost his innovation and ideas? Or do you think the people in charge now will do just as good a job as he would with CV2 or even better?

I personally don't have enough information to make an informed decision on this either way, but my instincts tell me that it's a bad thing that he left. But I could be wrong?

Let me know your thoughts on this.

This is an immature response. You are equally unable to "control yourself" as noted by your forum posts. You made a post in this thread that quotes a direct conversation I was having with another individual. You are the one creating the buzzing noise and then complaining about it later. It's an old game.

Well they weren't going to let Carmack go ANYWHERE if they could help it. The man is a genius and worth his weight in gold. You can see the mess that Doom VFR turned into after he left id for starters.

He's probably chained to a desk in a basement somewhere if Facebook have any sense at all.

You had some idiots on the Rift sub-Reddit that said that Carmack was finished in the industry after the lawsuit, I found it all quite amusing just how wrong they all were.

Completely agree! Carmack is a badass, and I'm glad he's chained to that VR desk lol

This Thread would have been much better as a poll. Missed opportunity!

Some people don't like polls in here, it doesn't allow them to change their viewpoint by 180 through a thread :wink:

Maybe we should forget about why Palmer was given the boot and instead focus on what he's doing today? Anyone know?

Here's a link to news about him:

I can't quote from it though, because it's 90% hardcore politics. Sigh
