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

A visit to one of the Valve Index listings on the U.S. version of Steam does indeed show that all configurations of the headset and its accessories are now sold out. Or more conspiracy-prone types could even argue that the out-of-stock issues are helping to stoke the hype for Alyx and VR in general. You can still play Half-Life: Alyx on other major VR headsets, but if you want the full Valve experience, you might already be out of luck.

Following on from Valve's announcement of Half-Life: Alyx, the VR headset market saw an immediate boost.

This could be a make-or-break moment for Valve and its VR headset. 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.

Mets, Beltran mutually agree to part ways
Beltran finished up his 20-season Major League Baseball career in 2017, walking away after winning the World Series with Houston. Beltran was not punished as he was a player at the time but has now left the Mets before taking charge of a game.

As Road to VR reports, on the Index's Steam product page, Valve has implemented a "notify me" button so folks can sign up to receive a notification when units are back in stock in their particular region.

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.

If you are hoping to be playing Half-Life: Alyx as soon as it becomes available please note that Valve has confirmed the game will be compatible with all PC SteamVR headsets.

Valve did not say when stock will be replenished, opting instead to post a message across the Index's local store pages that reads, "We're busy catching up with demand for Valve Index".
