Oculus Rift Has No Room For Pornographic Content, Says Facebook
Most of us would like it for our children to have a safe and pleasant experience with the Oculus Rift and so does Facebook.
A spokesperson for Facebook said it in a statement that the company wants your virtual reality experience to be harmless. According to Business Insider, virtual sex is an open no in the world of Oculus Rift.
Oculus only distributes developer content that meets their terms of service, which forbid pornographic content from being a part of the Oculus Store.
Facebook-owned Oculus Rift VR will start the selling process in the first quarter of 2016. Just like Apple’s App Store, Oculus will be starting its own app store from which consumers would be able to download engrossing apps and enthralling Virtual Reality games.
So Facebook is absolutely clear about the explicit content available on their VR device, but what about the violent content? How far are they willing to go on this one? When asked about the company’s views on the violent content levels, they had an interesting answer.
Oculus only distributes developer content that meets their terms of service, but they aren’t open to discuss what those terms are at this time.
Violence is something that cannot be defined in the world of VR gaming, it can be as light as a single slap or cutting someone’s throat to exploding a building. We wonder where Facebook will draw the line for this one.
All these apply to the ‘official’ Oculus Rift store and we are all pretty sure that unofficial content will be available online for consumers to access.
