The Valve Index VR headset is experiencing stock shortages in the U.S. and Canada after the reveal of Half-Life: Alyx.
Once the news landed, it seems as though a number of fans went out to order themselves a headset capable of doing justice to the new game.
It has been one week since Valve officially announced Half-Life: Alyx, complete with a gameplay trailer showing off VR gameplay.
It has now been reported that the Valve Index has sold out of units and can no longer be ordered in North America (it seems fine here in the United Kingdom, although we're warned that there may be delays due to increased demand). This is true for the U.S. and Canada, but stock appears to be available in other regions such as the UK. The announcement of a Half-Life VR game was clearly the spike in interest that the Valve Index considering none of the available bundles was even on sale for Black Friday. The Valve Index is available in 31 countries, so availability will vary differently.
Thanks, Road to VR.

There was no logical explanation for the incidence, but it was obvious that Elon Musk would comeback hitting at naysayers. One of the renders replaces the pointy top of the original Cybertruck with a more conventional flat top.

While the announcement for Half-Life: Alyx certainly wasn't the Half-Life 3 that a lot of players were hoping for, it's still a pretty big deal and something that Valve is taking seriously, not least because of all the work that's going into it.
Half-Life: Alyx will, of course, be compatible with many other VR headsets, including the much cheaper Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
Personally I'm not interested in VR at the moment.
Check out our Half-Life: Alyx interview for more details on Valves first new game in the series in 12 years. Are any of you planning on picking up a VR headset before the game comes out? It's important to remember, though, that Half-Life: Alyx was only known about in the latter half of the week, so that's where all the impact would have been felt.
