Oculus: "a new platform emerges every 10 years; Zuckerberg believes VR is coming next"

CES doesn’t do many panels - it’s all about the blue LED lights of the show floor. But this year the LA tech event held a session on ‘Emerging Trends in Gaming’. VR was sure to be the first item for discussion, even if Oculus head of studios Jason Rubin hadn’t been mic’d up for the occasion.

“Mark bought Oculus because he believes that a new platform emerges every 10 years," said Rubin. “And he believes that VR is coming next."

Naughty Dog co-founder and ex-THQ president Jason Rubin joins Oculus VR

Palmer Luckey and Co really are building a super team over at Oculus VR. Soon, there won’t be anyone left for them to hire. It’ll get to the point where they’ll end up just picking people up off the street, bundling them into black vans and then putting them to work. 

Oculus VR’s latest hire is Jason Rubin, co-founder of Naughty Dog and THQ’s last president before the publisher went bankrupt. Rubin’s new position is as head of worldwide studios, leading the company’s first-party content initiatives.

Humble Bundle on THQ partnership: “Rest assured that indie bundles will continue to be an important part of our business”

Comment
Humble Bundle on THQ partnership: “Rest assured that indie bundles will continue to be an important part of our business”It might be that I was watching events unfold from within the fireplace, but my indie-dev-heavy Twitter feed was ablaze last night with jibes about the new THQ Humble Bundle. Because while buyers found themselves subject to a shockingly good deal - and nobody needs a few spare bob right now like THQ - many simply saw the purveyor of all things indie in bed with a major publisher and found their credibility compasses spontaneously exploding.

Now Humble Bundle have talked a little about their agreement with THQ, and RPS have found them unrepentant.
