Valve officially revealed Index, its new $999 top-notch virtual reality PC hardware. The preorder starts on May 1, 2019.

Valve, the developer of the software distribution platform Steam, introduced the headset this Tuesday. If you’re familiar with HTC Vive setup, it’s almost the same here.

  • Face Gasket
  • Cradle Adapter (for smaller heads)

The Index headset and controllers cost $749 USD as a bundle, while a headset costs $499 USD on its own, and controllers cost $279 USD, and a single base station has the price of $150.
