The Oculus Quest, the runaway hit VR headset that’s been largely unavailable from any retailer since the holidays, is finally coming back in stock. That’s great news for VR fans. The Quest earned an Editors’ Choice Award here at CNET last year, and unlike most gadgets, it has gotten significantly better with age. Oculus last year rolled out a hand-tracking update that makes it possible for developers to create games that don’t require controllers, and the Oculus Link software and cable enables the Quest to be tethered to a PC and play games written for the HTC Vive. Which brings us to the latest reason for shortages: Half-Life: Alyx, a flagship VR title from Valve that’s designed to be run on pricey tethered headsets, but can be played just fine on a relatively inexpensive Quest using the Oculus Link.
