Oculus Quest Still In Stock At Best Buy Canada

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

4 Comments

Half-Life: Alyx has taken the VR world by storm, and if you want to get in on it, the Oculus Quest is a great, versatile VR headset that's compatible with Valve's latest game and a bunch of other great titles. Unfortunately, it's been incredibly hard to find at its regular list price for the past few months, but a few retailers are starting to restock the Quest in small amounts.

Right now, Canadians can snag either Oculus Quest model from Best Buy--unfortunately, Best Buy USA does not currently have any in stock.

Otherwise, your best chance of getting a Quest is to keep checking for the headset's availability over at the Oculus website.

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.
