Foreseen consequences: Valve Index sold out globally

We are only two months or so away from the release of Half Life: Alyx.

Not all is lost though, as Valve's spokesperson said, We are working hard to build more units and meet the high demand [.] We are targeting to be back in stock before Half-Life: "Alyx ships".

Road to VR reports that all 31 countries where Valve sells its Index VR headset have no stock. Well it's now starting to look like those days might be behind us, as Valve says it's now entirely sold out of its Index VR kits, and there's no guarantee that they'll be back in stock before the game releases in March.

Valve's customers in Japan can get just the bare Index headset, or get the package that includes the headset and controllers, but the full kit is yet to become available. Are any of you looking to buy a Valve Index? In brief, Valve's strategy of rekindling one of its cult franchises to propel sales of the VR hardware appears to have been more successful than it had expected.

Microsoft may fix extremely serious Windows security flaw on Tuesday

Following on from Valve's announcement of Half-Life: Alyx, the VR headset market saw an immediate boost. The UK's supplied were significantly impacted a day later with 4-8 day delivery times on all Index kits, and Italy was very close to being in the same position.

The best way to play Half-Life: Alyx is sold out nearly everywhere in the world, but at least Valve hopes to replenish stocks before the game arrives in March.

Half-Life: Alyx is due in only a couple of months, and the required VR headset is now practically sold out. Valve representative confirms this.
