Welcome to closed gaming where everything you own is not yours to own or control as you wish.

Oculus Rifts around the world stopped working this morning - Polygon

'Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets around the world are experiencing an outage this morning, including devices here at Polygon. '

'Once it has appeared, there’s no way to restart the Oculus app, which renders the Rift headset unusable. '

'At least one developer, Adam Boyne, was mid-demo at an event when his Oculus stopped working. '

'Users are not sure what is causing the issue, and so far neither Facebook nor Oculus itself has provided a solution. '

'One place where users experiencing the issue are gathering is on the Oculus forums. '

This has been an automated message.

This is why relying on external servers to keep a product running is a terrible idea. VR headsets should not need to care about certificates or servers to simply work.

I wish people would stop buying rubbish like this.

vr is cool as hell but fuck buying anything owned by fb.

If vive v2.0 is as good as it sounds I might be tempted. Hope the price is lower though.

Technically you can use PSVR headset as a VR steam headset. Far cheaper
