Oculus CEO On Microsoft's Minecraft Acquisition: "How Ironic"

By Mike Fahey on at

When Oculus was purchased by Facebook earlier this year, Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson famously cut ties with the VR company. Now that Notch has sold his company to Microsoft for $2.5 billion, Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe has a little something to say.

The comment came during the keynote of Oculus Connect 2014 today in Hollywood, California, during a talk on the history of the company leading up to today's announcement of the new Rift prototype. And the crowd went wild.
