Half-Life: Alyx is finally on its way after a major delay, and it is set to revolutionise VR gaming.
Following on from Valve's announcement of Half-Life: Alyx, the VR headset market saw an immediate boost.
Before we cover everything you need to know about the upcoming VR game, we first need to take a look at why the Valve Index is sold out in 31 different countries!
That's according to data from Road to VR, which found that Valve's high-end headset is out of stock in 30 out of 31 regions.
We now know that Half-Life: Alyx is released on Steam and only supports PC VR headsets like Valve Index, Vive, Oculus and Windows MR. As Road To VR reports, the complete Valve Index kit, with controllers and base stations, appears to have been sold out in all regions. Then, the headset on its own and the headset/controller bundle is also sold out in all countries with the exception of Japan. A trip to the Index's Steam page features a list price of £919 and an option to "Notify Me", presumably when the hardware gets its stock renewed.
Valve did not indicate when the supply would be replenished.
Due to the high demand of Valve's technology, which includes a free copy of Half-Life: Alyx, the company has updated the device's Steam page to make it easier for customers to know when they can get their hands on the product. Try to buy an Index anywhere else and you'll only be able to sign up for email notifications for when they come back in stock.
