Not true from what I am aware. It must be about 2 years ago now (?), Oculus were on a recruitment campaign to vacuum up all the best world class talent across a broad spectrum from engineers to neurologists and were offering the pay and conditions to get them. The mission as told to the potential candidates was to leapfrog the competition by a significant amount to release the best vr headset the world has ever seen, in five years.
So I think they’re in the high end, possibly more invested than anyone, but have removed themselves from the market place for 5 years to attempt this leapfrog move they aim for. And keep chasing the low end sales in the meantime to keep their company in view and slowly bring the masses toward vr with cheap, easy to use units.
It sucks they’re owned by facebook. I would place my bets that at the end of the 5 years they will have the best headset. How long they can hold off competitors catching up will be interesting.
