When it comes to getting the fastest news and updates - often from the horse's mouth - you really just have to visit MTBS' forums (credit to Dakor for the screencap). The latest is Markus "Notch" Persson got his Oculus Rift today, and has stated that he is very excited about playing with it in his Twitter feed.
For those unfamiliar, Markus is best known for creating Minecraft, credited as being the sixth best selling game of all time in March, 2012. He has since moved on to developing a new space game called 0x10c. Uniquely qualified for The Rift? Time...and imagination...will tell!
