After more than 3 months of hard negotiations, today Sunday, December 28, 2014 we can proudly announce that we have reached an agreement with Facebook for Real or Virtual to be part of the group led by Mark Zuckerberg. There will be some changes on the website over the next few weeks that we are sure you will love.
Facebook has been following the steps of this news portal with great interest since the appearance of Real o Virtual in May 2013, but it was not until August 2014, when we secretly interviewed Zuckerberg during GamesCom, when Facebook has shown interest in taking control of this website. The Facebook team and Real or Virtual have reached an agreement for a merger for an amount of 3000 million dollars (1000 million more than what it paid for Oculus at the time).
There will be some changes to the website over the next few weeks, the most noteworthy thing is that Juanlo will leave his position here and dedicate himself to handing out coffees with buns at Facebook’s headquarters in Redwood City. Pdaxon, the voice of our RoVCast, will go on to direct an online radio program about Scientology that will start next February and will be the big star of Facebook in 2015, while our programmer will also spend a few months in a psychiatric institution to regain his sanity after the latest changes made to the web. The rest of the team will perform various maintenance tasks in different Facebook offices around the world.
And what will happen to the web? Let no one be alarmed, since Mark and Juanlo, after carefully analyzing the history of our foreros, have decided that from now on our Oldsysop partner will be in charge of covering all the news related to Oculus and virtual reality, given the enthusiasm shown by the merger between Oculus and Facebook from day one. From this moment he has full administrator privileges and very soon you will be able to see his first video in which he plays Minesweeper in a Crescent Bay prototype signed by Mark Zuckerberg. Dear friends, it has been a pleasure to be with you during this time, but we are sure that with the changes we have announced, Real or Virtual (accessible only from Facebook from January 1) will become the world reference for virtual reality in any language.
