Valve, which prepared the new Half Life game, which the entire video game world is curiously waiting for after 13 years, as a virtual reality, gave the signs that it wants to make big investments in the VR sector. The strategy of the company in the sector worked with Valve Index glasses.
A risky strategy
According to the analysis by SuperData, the sales figure of Valve Index virtual reality helmet was 103 thousand in the last quarter of the year. While PS VR sold 338 thousand in the same period, Oculus Quest glasses also managed to reach 317 thousand.

Half-Life: This number doubled after the Alyx announcement. Valve Index has finished stocks in all regions where it is on sale.
