Last week, I argued that the first generation of VR headsets might not be worth buying, even at half the original price.

This week, two Facebook executives tried to convince me otherwise. 

In an interview — leaning on a huge, ornate wooden table that would fit right into Game of Thrones — they explained that technological advancements such as eye tracking and cord-cutting wireless may not come as soon as we think, or as soon as a Bloomberg report might suggest

They say the first-generation Oculus Rift headset is here to stay.
