    The 'Valve Prism' VR Headset is Fake

    Stop believing everything you see on the Internet.

    The Internet did that thing again where they latched onto a clear hoax as if it were real. Someone put up a website for a "Valve Prism" virtual reality headset earlier today and tried to pass it off as a legitimate device from Valve. Except it's fake. It's not real. You all got bamboozled.

    At a glance, the website seems convincing enough. It depicts various renders, fluff words, and impressive technical specs...

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
