When will the Valve Index, Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S be available again?
The Corona virus continues to occupy minds. The impact of the virus is now also noticeable in the tech world. Production has largely come to a standstill in China and other parts of Asia to limit the spread of the virus. The result is that stocks run out or already are. Wij krijgen veel vragen over de beschikbaarheid van met name de Valve Index, Oculus Quest en Oculus Rift S.
In an official statement heeft Valve laten weten dat de Index in ‘veel lagere aantallen’ voorradig zal zijn. They indicate that they are doing everything they can to increase the stocks, especially with a view to the release of the game Half-Life: Alyx (March 23), which is also being developed by Valve. Expectations for the game are high; many people assume that the game will become a revolutionary VR product. De game is overigens niet alleen op de Index, maar op meerdere headsets te spelen.
Oculus Quest & Rift S
Oculus owner Facebook has not yet made official statements regarding the availability of its products. However, we can assume that the same applies for the Oculus Quest and the Oculus Rift S as for the Valve Index, as these products are also not currently available.
Light on the horizon
Now that the spread of the virus in China seems to be slowing down, so is the production of electronics again get going. Alert levels have since been lowered, so that more and more people are returning to work. It is not yet entirely clear when the products will be back in stock, but we will keep you informed!
