Facebook please. This is why I'm rooting for the HTC Vive.

Yeah, I think we shouldn't get too upset, the very fact that now there will be 4 or 5 headsets competing is overall a good thing for the development of the technology.

Valve is working on a VR headset. That's all I need to know.

edit: Oh, that is the HTC Vine version. I am not a smrt man.

No porn on steam either, and this is the same thing.

Oculus to block porn content

Good luck with that.

While I agree with that wholly, it seems to only apply to their 'Oculus Store'.

Oh okay! I don't think anybody would expect the official Oculus store to sell porn.

What's the point of it without porn?

As long as you can display anything on your computer on the rift this won't be a problem. I don't think i would use their "oculus store" anyway.

Continuing to support companies like Facebook is a good way to ensure that you are no longer able to do this in the future. Be wary of any so-called "app stores," as most of them are nothing more than content censorship mechanisms.

This was my thought. This is more like steam blocking porn. Nobody would care, because nobody expects to get their porn there.

This is what happens when you give new technology to a corporation which grew big by enabling females to exercise their hypergamy.

Hypergamy (colloquially referred to as "marrying up") is a term used in social science for the act or practice of marrying someone who is wealthier or of higher caste or social status than oneself.

iOS AppStore? Google Play? Steam? None of them allow porn either.

PC and mobile phones and so forth all "allow" access to porn via a web browser. They're not locked down like say a game console sans web browser is, or how the Oculus potentially could be.

Why block anything? I have never understood why companies block anything. Why not let consumer decide what they want or don't want? (ie Voat over reddit)

Remember VHS vs Betamax

Although it is a myth that porn wasn't available on Betamax, VHS had a much larger market in the porn industry which was influential for sales (JVC would go out and talk to porn studios and encourage them to use VHS over Betamax)

It's stupid to cut out a portion of your market for any reason. If Oculus won't cater to the porn industry, another format will, and that format will see great benefits from doing so.

Edit: Seems like it's only blocked over their Oculus App-Store. But will be interesting to see how this develops.

Probably similar to how porn developed on iPhones/iPads given that Apple block porn from the AppStore.
