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.
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.
