General Business: Valve is "working hard" to replenish Index VR HMD stocks

Thanks To Half-Life Alyx Valve’s Index VR Headsets Are Sold Out Pretty Much The World Over

Japan stands as the sole exception to that, where the headset and controllers and headset-only packages are still available for purchase. That report claims that "after a comprehensive check of Valve Index stock and availability in all 31 countries in which Index is sold, we found that the headset is sold out across the globe".

We are only two months or so away from the release of Half Life: Alyx. The Valve Index headset sells for $499 by itself or $1,000 in a complete bundle with all the sensors and controllers you need. The listings are accompanied by a "notify me" button that prospective buyers can use to submit their email address and get a notification when the headset and its accessories are back in stock. Hopefully Valve is able to scale up production enough to get an Index headset to everybody who wants one in time for Half-Life: Alyx.

Half-Life: Alyx - the first Half-Life game we've seen in more than a decade and the flagship title for Valve's Index VR headset - is on the horizon.

However, Valve has made a fair old song and dance about how its Index headset will deliver the best VR experience for the game - with finger tracking via the controllers, for example (the fact is that the Index is just a great piece of hardware all round, as we cover in our full review of the device). Half-Life is still a system seller; just like with Half-Life 2's momentous launch bringing the revolutionary digital distribution platform of Steam into homes, Alyx is doing the same for VR.

James Murdoch denounces father's news outlets for climate change denial
The raging fires across Australia have killed at least 28 people and destroyed more than 15 million acres of forest. Nevertheless, he was cited by The Guardian as a private climate skeptic.

Valve revealed the next entry into the popular Half-Life franchise would be a virtual reality exclusive in November previous year.

So this is a bit of a odd one, in a way, unless Valve has run into unforeseen production difficulties of some kind.

Revealed through an article by RoadToVR, Valve's stock of virtual reality headsets is running dry. As ever, only time will tell.
