Minecraft on the Oculus is now cancelled. Notch claims he refuses to work with Facebook.

Anyone else imagining farmville in VR?
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

Goodbye Oculus Rift. I had no hope in your gimmickry to begin with.
