I suppose this is as good a thread as any to post this question/observation.
It's old news that Notch wanted nothing to do with Rift once SpaceBook purchased the company. The same old news category is that Notch sold the company to Microsoft. He would therefore have no decision making power should MS decide to embrace the Rift.
I'm no fan of Spacebook, nor of MS, but I enjoy to play Minecraft and would like to see it via the Rift. Even anaglyph glasses are a bit of fun.
Any leads/rumors about this out there in the 'net?
The occulus is already pretty big (in popularity), even though there are only developper-fucussed prototypes released. As soon as (or maybe even before) the occus isofficially released (talking about the consumer version here), I'm pretty sure that if Minecraft doesn't support it natively, there'll be a mod that will do it.
I agree that it's a bit sad. However, I think Notch is right in saying that he doesn't want to work with social, he wants to work with games. I wholeheartedly agree with this decision, although it kind of stinks that we won't be seeing an Oculus Rift compatible Minecraft version anytime soon. But, on the other hand.. the Oculus Rift may sound cool, but it seems to me that it may give you headaches, dizziness, etc., if you use it too long. Maybe Minecraft is better off without it.
