Zuckerberg: Microsoft and Sony are no match for Facebook and Oculus

The jaw-dropper of the day in the tech industry, you’ve probably heard, was Facebook’s announcement that it will spend $2 billion to acquire Oculus, the maker of the virtual-reality headset Oculus Rift.

Yes, no joke, and it was interesting to listen to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg talk about why the social network decided to bring Oculus into the fold. The deal might seem nuts, but it’s a reminder that Facebook, with 1.2 billion users, believes it’s only getting started.
