Oculus Quest In Stock At Amazon, Oculus, And Best Buy
If you're looking for a VR headset for Half-Life: Alyx, then the Oculus Quest is a great, versatile choice.
Oculus's headsets are two of the best out there, and if you're looking for one to play Half-Life: Alyx, you should probably pick up a Quest right now. The official Oculus store has both the 64 and 128 GB models in stock, though neither will ship until August 17. The Oculus Quest is also in stock at Amazon, where it currently ships August 19 (128 GB) and August 24 (64 GB). Finally, Best Buy has some stock of both models as well. Considering how quickly these listings have sold out when they pop up, we recommend getting in on these listings while you can.
Where to buy an Oculus Quest
The all-in-one Oculus Quest is a completely wireless device, giving you the freedom to experience and play VR games anywhere you want. However, it's also compatible with Half-Life: Alyx if you plug it into your PC. This is possible through Oculus Link, a technology that lets you plug your Quest into a PC with a high-speed USB-C cable and play Steam and Rift games as if it was a PC VR headset. Of course, you'll need a high-quality cable to do this. We recommend Anker's Powerline+ USB-C to USB 3.0 cable, which is what I use with Half-Life: Alyx.
The Oculus Quest is one of the best VR headsets out there, thanks to that versatility. In addition to Half-Life: Alyx, it's capable of playing pretty much every VR game out there--except for PlayStation VR exclusives. If you're looking for something to keep you busy while you're stuck inside, the Quest VR headset is a great way to escape reality.
