Oculus Backers On Kickstarter Won't Get Any Part Of The $2 Billion Deal

•, Kyle Russell
 Oculus doesn't make a consumer product yet, but its headset called the Oculus Rift for video game developers has completely changed the way many feel about video games.

Oculus owes a lot of its success to a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Back in 2012, the startup raised more than $2.4 million from 9,522 backers. 

As with other Kickstarter campaigns, there were several tiers of "rewards" one could receive for backing the early Oculus headset, like T-shirts and posters. 

If you put in $300 or more, you got the very first version of the headset sent to developers interested in making virtual reality games.

Some people put in hundreds more — even thousands.
