Oculus Suspends Oculus Rift Dev Kit Sales In China 131

An anonymous reader writes with news about how Oculus is dealing with the reselling of dev kits in China. Bad news for those of you looking to get your hands on a preorder of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. A representative from Oculus recently confirmed that the company has had to stop selling its headsets in China as a result of an undisclosed amount of reselling. Which is to say, some of those preordering the developer edition of the virtual reality headset in China — not the consumer product, which hasn't been officially released in any capacity just yet — aren't actually looking to develop anything on the headsets. Nor are they even interested in getting a first look at the virtual reality capabilities of the $350 development kit. They're scalping, plain and simple, to take advantage of what appears to be a hefty amount of demand for the device.

    I'm more than happy to get stale news here if it means that the self-centered, smug, support-my-bullshit-social-cause-or-you're-a-monster shit nugget hipsters who inhabit reddit stay there instead of coming here. Those people are the scum of the earth and they truly make me want to vomit up blood and even my own feces whenever I read any comments that they have posted.

    My great fear at this point is that they'll see Slashdot as some sort of an online Detroit, and they'll move over here in great numbers trying to "restore" Slashdot to its former glory. That would, obviously, be a total disaster for this site that would be worse than even the destruction that the failed Slashdot Beta site has brought.

When you are working hard, get up and retch every so often.
