Setting aside the early boom of third-party games like Farmville, which were built on top of the Facebook platform, Facebook's acquisition of Oculus positioned the company at the forefront of a brand new category. The current situation could force people to either create placeholder accounts or use only one headset at a time, potentially hurting some of Oculus' most loyal users.
Facebook account deletion when tied to an Oculus account now results in you losing all your Oculus games.
Should you continue with deactivating your Facebook account, you'll lose access to all Oculus products. It's an unfortunate part of the Oculus account ecosystem at the moment, and while it's meant to change at some point in the near future, it's far from optimal now.
This implied that using a combination of an Oculus Quest 2 and Rift S at the same time with the same Facebook account would result in some serious problems.
Whilst you can argue Playstation, Nintendo, Microsoft and Steam accounts work in the exact same way in our digital license present, one, Facebook is a lot more information-hungry, and two, this is an account now linked to your very identity. But, the support of other Oculus accounts will be ending after 2023.
As widely reported Facebook can ban an account depending on how its used or whether it appears suspicious - no real activity for example.
Many folks have criticised Facebook for this frankly ridiculous move.
As verified by IGN and seen in the screenshot we've captured below, when you attempt to delete your Facebook account, it says "Deleting your Facebook account will also delete your Oculus information". But this new revelation makes the push to merge Oculus accounts with Facebooks accounts seem much more insidious, and after years of blissful ignorance, many gamers' fears about Facebook encroaching on their entertainment space is finally coming to pass. Otherwise, you run the risk of losing your Oculus account as well.
The cherry on top is a clause in the terms of service that prevents you from even being able to mount a class-action lawsuit.
After a brief uproar on social media, Oculus clarified that using the same Facebook account on two headsets will not get the user banned.
