The VR MMO would require "a bigger network than exists in the world today", said Brendan. People suspected that the $2 billion money, which were used to purchase Oculus VR would help it with developing cheaper and better VR devices, we were also wondering why Oculus chose to join Facebook instead of a gaming company in March 2014, now we can see that the value of Facebook to Cculus is not just in the money, but also in Facebook's large user base. 

"Oculus will remain committed to games", said Brendan, but doesn't want to limit its potential reach. "Do you want to build a platform that has a billion users on it, or only 10, 20, or 50 million?

Oculus is already a professional gaming device company, the choice to join Facebook makes it possible to get a huge user base, Brendan also admitted that smart mobile phones will be more popular than professional gaming device on a long view.


Thank
You!
