Valve Index is a 120Hz 'fidelity first' VR headset, and it isn't cheap
Valve's new VR system has been unveiled. The Valve Index headset and Index Controllers (formerly called 'knuckles' controllers) will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow, and will begin shipping by July 1. By itself, the headset will go for $499.
Valve's Index VR headset will officially cost $999, on sale tomorrow
You may recall that Valve has its own virtual reality headset, the Valve Index, which it surprise-revealed one month ago. And you might even remember that Valve said preorders will begin tomorrow, May 1st, and ship this June. Now, we're learning exactly how much the Valve Index will cost: $999.

The tech for this seems really impressive, but I'm just not going to pay that much for VR. I think if VR is going to reach mainstream success, it needs to be reasonably priced and more comfortable. I'd personally take ease of use over graphics any day.

It feels like the hype for VR headsets has kind of been and gone and the price is a bit steep, looks good though, hopefully valve can bring VR gaming to a new level
