Comcast, Verizon, and Sony are also after Fox’s film and TV units

Talk of Disney eyeing Fox’s assets has ignited the interest of more media juggernauts. The new batch of contenders includes Comcast, Verizon, and Sony’s entertainment arm, according to The Wall Street Journal.

News emerged last week that Disney had held talks with 21st Century Fox to snap up most of its empire, which spans movie studios, its TV production business, entertainment channels (like FX and National Geographic) and international properties like Sky — whittling Fox down to a smaller-scale enterprise focused on news and sports. Its new suitors are reportedly chasing the same assets, although talks are in the early stages, according to WSJ’s sources.

It seems content is king in this case. Fox’s entertainment properties (including its Marvel roster, composed of X-Men and Deadpool) would bring Disney a step closer to completing its Marvel Studios collection. And, likely appeal to Sony as well (which saw Spider-Man: Homecoming single-handedly boost its movie division). Meanwhile, Comcast would stand to consume another movie studio (alongside Universal Pictures) and more programming for its Xfinity video streaming services — something Verizon and Disney are now in the market for too. For better or worse, media consolidation could end up the real victor.

Oculus Rift bundle discounted to $379 until December 20th

After permanently slashing the Rift and Touch combo price to $399/£399, Oculus is at it again. With Christmas fast approaching, the VR headset bundle is now the cheapest it's been since Black Friday, at $379/£369. (Heads up that Amazon UK is still honoring the £349 Black Friday price for now, though.) The price cut means the device is fast approaching the more affordable Windows Mixed Reality gear on the market. But, the limited time deal is only up until 11.59PM (PT) on December 20th, so you'll have to be quick. You can grab the kit online via Oculus' website and in select stores, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Newegg.

With new games and apps making it onto the Oculus Store everyday, you won't be at a loss for entertainment come Christmas. Aside from the fresh beta release of the Rift Core 2.0 VR interface, Arktika.1 brought some motion-controlled action (from the makers of the Metro series) to the device in October. A companion experience for Pixar's latest smash, Coco, also arrived around the same time. And, you'd be silly to miss out on rhythmic shooter Rez Infinite, which we found to be a transcendental VR journey.
