Valve Not Making Retail VR Headsets

Valve is not currently planning on bringing virtual reality hardware to retail, in spite Oculus Rift's Palmer Luckey reported comment that "Valve's VR tech is the best virtual reality demo in the world right now." There's word on this on Rock, Paper, Shotgun from the Steam Developer Days, where Valve revealed it will work with third-party developers on hardware, revealing they already collaborated with Oculus Rift on the improved Crystal Cove headsets they recently showed off. Valve's Michael Abrash did not rule out Valve eventually creating its own commercial VR glasses down the road, and he predicts that high quality VR headsets should be widely available within two years or less.
