Valve’s VR headset will ship in June, according to unfinished Steam page

An unfinished Steam page for the Valve Index has appeared, and it says the Valve-produced VR headsets will ship on June 15. (The page has since been removed, but you can catch a screengrab here.)

The Valve Index has been rumored for a while, but we only got confirmation that Valve will be shipping its own VR headset last week. That teaser suggested that pre-ordering will begin in May. (And regarding today's date, Valve confirmed to PC Gamer last week that the Index is real, and said we'd have more news soon.)

The Index store page doesn't add much more detail about the headset—there's no word on resolution, FOV, etc—and parts of it contain placeholder text: "Displays. Optics. Audio. Ergo.Experience the infinite virtual worlds of Valve Index. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit."

There is a list of what's included in the package, though:

  •  Headset 
  •  Integrated Headphones 
  •  Tether with DisplayPort 1.2 and USB 3.0 Connections 
  •  Power Adapter 
  •  Regionalized Power Adapter Plug(s) 
  •  2 Face Gaskets (narrow and wide) 

Absent from that list are the SteamVR base stations (the tracking devices you mount over your playspace, which currently come with the HTC Vive). They can be purchased separately, and also have an unfinished Steam page (which was also removed).

The Index doesn't come with controllers, either, which have yet another removed Steam listing. They're called Index Controllers on Steam, and are likely a version of the 'knuckles' controllers Valve's been working on.

With these pages going live on Steam, an announcement may be imminent, hopefully with specs that give us a sense of how Valve's own hardware will be different from the HTC Vive and the newer Vive Pro, currently the main SteamVR headsets.
