Iribe said that the VR MMO would require "a bigger network than exists in the world today," but considering the world's biggest social network now owns the VR startup, this could be an easy achievement. Before we see a VR MMO, Oculus VR wants users to be convinced they're talking to "real" people - so we have to have the graphics and ground work laid out over the next couple of years.
