Will you ever buy a ZeniMax product again?

I'm going to stop purchasing ZeniMax products for the time being and re-invest the money into Oculus Home and hardware. Call me what you want -  Not trying to come off as immature, just an adult prioritizing where my dollars go, and whom I support.

What do you think - has Zenimax burned a bridge in their lethal assault against Oculus and the VR industry OR are they in the right and justified in their case?

They're trying real hard to shut down the VR industry and if VR is something you care about than grow a pair and support boycotting these assholes whether you like any of their games or not. You can't just let big companies like this get away with this kind of petty shit.

Well if they pass some of that cash down the line to Bethesda and lavish it on VR support then I will buy the products. If they do not support VR going forward then my cash will stay in my wallet.

Do you realize it could be years before we see a quality Bethesda game in VR? And if ZeniMax shuts down Oculus, what platform do you think they would be building Bethesda VR games against? Would you buy an entirely new VR Kit just for a Bethesda game?

Upgrades to an up-to-date product, not upgrades to an out-of-date product.

By the time the CV1 is upgraded, it should be due to the current industry pushing the CV1 beyond its capacity. That hasn't happened yet.

Upgrades to something that has been collecting dust for a year or longer is fairly worthless. I'd rather just buy a competitor product who is continuing to make present-day strides.

I'd say definitely, the second generation VR headsets should be coming out by then.  And if Elder Scrolls VI: Skyrim II is released only on the Snoy Viewportcullis then I probably wouldn't buy it JUST for that game, but it might be the deciding factor.

The only Zenimax game that has been any good recently has been Doom.  Fallout and their fantasy equivalent games are so generic in story terms it hurts and are totally overrated IMO.
