Review bombing sees Facebook’s VR ad test in need of a new game

Less than a week after announcing it intended to start testing ads in VR, Facebook has hit a snag—the game developer it initially announced it was working with has withdrawn (via UploadVR). This comes after a sizable backlash from the community that saw the announced game, Blaston, inundated with negative reviews.

The review bombing isn’t necessarily without merit, as Blaston is a paid-for game. At the time of purchase, gamers didn’t know they were going to be treated to virtual advertisements, thus the uproar. Everyone expects ads in free to play games, less so in something you’ve already paid for.
