    Imo the rift is crap anyway, so no worries, go Sony or some other company.

    When it re releases it will have ads on the displays at certain intervals :laugh:

    Edit: I was thinking about it after making this post and I wonder if this will cause some people to leave the company. You have to take it serious when people are threatening to kill you and your family. You can't let that roll by. I'm not familiar enough with the project to know if there are any key members to the project which if they left then the Rift would suffer in quality with their leaving.
