Valve Index VR-helmets will begin to be distributed in the US and Canada no earlier than February – review

After the announcement Half-Life: Alyx virtual reality helmets Valve index become deficit in the US and Canada. Most likely, this is due to the upcoming gaming flagship, as well as the fact that the game will be presented to each helmet buyer by the end of the year.
Now the portal Uploadvr reportedthat the delivery of new sets of Valve Index worth a thousand dollars (about 64 thousand rubles) will begin no earlier than February 2023.
In “Alix”, recall, there will be optional gameplay features that are implemented only on Index controllers. Developers, by the way, do not exclude a potential release on PS VRbut now they focus on devices that support SteamVR.
