While details are extremely light, we now know Valve's VR headset is called the Valve Index and more details are coming soon.
A new page popped up on Steam and what's there is a single image giving us a teaser of the Valve Index VR headset:
This was actually leaked back in November last year which I reported on and the leaked images certainly match up to Valve's teaser of the Index above. So all we really know right now is the name and either more information or an actual release will be in May. Still, it's quite exciting!
Hopefully the Linux experience will be good, although considering all the work Valve has put in and contracted people to work on various parts of Linux by the time it releases we might see reasonable out of the box support.
The one thing I am still concerned about is price, as the HTC Vive, the only currently official SteamVR headset, is still around £500 and likely out of reach for many people (myself included). Hopefully the Valve Index will see a lower price for more to jump in and experience it.
