Facebook announced that it would be purchasing Oculus VR, the makers of Oculus Rift for $2 billion. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2014.

It's said that this might be a prototype and that the final controller design has yet to be determined. Even though Amazon's set-top box won't fully focus on its gaming abilities, it's good to know they are at least supporting gaming.
