Oculus should do what they do for phones, where you pretty much pay an installment each month and when the new version comes out you can easily upgrade. I can't toss $400 for a luxury item that I know is likely going to have a better version coming. I don't even know if my PC would be able to handle VR good either that's another investment.

This is really bizarre, because it has been next to impossible to get a Valve Index or Oculus Quest - the best PC unit and the best standalone. There just not inventory. Is it some kind of supply chain problem? I've had several colleagues ask about getting united since the pandemic started, and if they're not gamers, I recommend the Quest since they don't have gaming PCs. But it has been sold out.

The Quest is still mostly sold out or backordered, even months later:

And the Valve Index you order today will arrive in a few months:

"Notice: Due to high demand your current estimated ship date is more than 8 weeks."

Something doesn't add up.

Can't sell it when you can't make them. I had to wait 4 months for mine.

Worth it though.

When the Quest launched, we all predicted 1-2M sales of the device. So what is the problem? It is not that different from what we expected...
