Oculus VR touch controllers mistakenly included 'creepy' messages inside
Hidden messages between Oculus and their development team were “accidentally” included in thousands of controllers
These messages or 'Easter Eggs' as they are termed have been quite common place in the gaming world and have extended to gaming hardware recently. The messages can be anything from silly messages, call outs from developers or hidden clues for players who can get rewarded if they figure it out and now consumers may land up with controllers with these messages.
While he appreciated the easter eggs, Mitchell said the inclusion of these messages was “inappropriate” and should have been removed. He went on to say that the integrity and functionality of the hardware was not compromised, and they've fixed their process so this won't happen again.
The controllers won't be recalled but on a positive note, these units could become collector's items for VR users should they find one.
