Oculus Quest Sold Out At Major Retailers

If you're looking for a VR headset for Half-Life: Alyx, then the Oculus Quest is a great, versatile choice.


As VR continues to grow as a platform, many have stuck with the Oculus Quest as their go-to headset. It's portable, but can play Half-Life: Alyx (through Oculus Link), you should probably pick up a Quest right now. The official Oculus store has run out of stock for both the 64 and 128 GB models, but Amazon has some third-party sellers selling the 128 GB version for its standard $500 price. Considering how quickly these listings have sold out when they pop up, we recommend getting one while you can.

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.

While you kill time until your VR headset arrives, be sure to check out all of the free games you can claim right now and the best TV, movies, and games for social distancing.
