ZeniMax sued Oculus VR and founder Palmer Luckey over trade secrets related to the Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset, and now we have the defendants' side of the story.

A representative of Oculus shared the company's court filing, viewable in full below. "ZeniMax's Complaint falsely claims ownership in Oculus VR technology in a transparent attempt to take advantage of the [$2 billion] Oculus VR sale to Facebook," it reads.

Review: Logitech G910 Orion Spark

In high-level competition, every little advantage counts. It is why Olympic swimmers shave their bodies before a race, why pre-med students fight tooth-and-nail for every half point on every test, and why gaming keyboards exi...more
