It's probably a silly question, but I'm trying to talk myself into getting into the game and I don't want to lay down the cash for the whole package right now. And I don't trust Nintendo with things that seem obvious. Any reason one couldn't play on his old 3DS with the cart and continue their game on a n3DS with the improvements later?
I can't help but like Peter Molyneux. Not that he - or his company - hasn't done wrong that needs to be addressed. But I know I can get caught up in that enthusiasm and creative thinking, so I can't expect him not to.
I don't think I would want him to change. Just surround himself with people who can keep him pointed in the right direction. Friends don't let friends drive drunk, or talk to the press before the game goes gold.
But without the Oculus Rift project on Kickstarter, none of this would be happening. It's easy to be upset that you're not walking home with tens of thousands in your pocket, but that was never going to happen.
Could this be a bit of a misinterpretation? I'm sure there are those who are angry for this reason, but I don't think it's the main driver. I'm guessing it's a mistrust of Facebook, period. The reaction is similar to what I imagine if Oculus had been bought by, say, BP or Monsanto. But if Oculus had been purchased by Valve, on the other hand, the backlash would not be anywhere near as fierce.
OcuBook is just another reminder that the middle class has enough money to pre-order $300 toys but not enough money to properly invest
