Facebook to begin testing ads inside Oculus virtual reality headsets

Virtual reality has been, to this point, a largely ad-free experience, but that may soon change. In May, Facebook said it would begin running ads within the Oculus mobile app, but the announcement on Wednesday is the first time the social media company says it will show ads within its VR headsets. For now, this is a test with a few apps. Further rollouts will depend on what is learned with this

It doesn't seem as bad as the title would make you think. It seems like it's just ads placed in Oculus games and not for the system itself. As such all we have to do is protest any game that would put ads in itself. Still really don't like the way this is going though.

Compared to other VR alternatives, how much do you have pay for Oculus? If it's about the same, why bother buying Oculus, when others don't also force you to watch ads on top of paying hefty sum?

Remember that joke in Futurama where Fry has the speedo advertisement piped directly into his dreams? Yeah that was a funny joke...
