Valve unveils its own virtual reality headset: the Valve Index

The first look at the Valve Index VR headset

With the Valve Index scheduled to come out this May, 2019 is poised to be significant year for new VR consoles. Given the spectacular failure of its microtransaction-laden card game Artifact (seriously, who didn't see that coming?) and Epic stealing big game titles away from Valve's online game store Steam, the company is on rocky grounds right now. Could this indicate it's going to be a high-end VR entry?

Valve has now started teasing a new VR headset that is called the Valve Index.

Now Valve unveiled the Valve Index without an elaborate presentation and instead opted to take the silent approach.

There isn't any more info available on the site beyond a date for when Valve will, I assume, share more info about this new piece of VR hardware. No indication has been made about whether or not the SteamVR Knuckle controllers will be a part of Index, although an updated prototype was shown a year ago. Based on the photo and the name of the Steam page, the headset seems to be named The Valve Index. With the launch only a bit more than a month away, we expect to hear more details soon. That report hinted to Valve's headset supporting a wider, 135-degree field-of-view (FOV), as opposed to the roughly 110-degree FOV of the original HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Do you believe we could see it as early as May?

Valve Corporation's long-rumored VR headset is finally real.
