It’s been a tough few weeks for Sony. First, the company announced disappointing sales numbers for its PlayStation 4 console, and now it’s facing reports of production cuts for its upcoming PlayStation VR headset.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Sony is planning to cut production of the PS VR 2 by more than half, due to weak pre-orders and concerns about the high price point.

The news is a blow to Sony, which had been banking on the success of its VR headset to help drive sales of its PlayStation 4 console. The company had previously said that it hoped to sell 1 million units of the PS VR by the end of 2016, but it’s now clear that that goal is out of reach.

Sony is no stranger to production cuts, having reduced output of the PS3 and PS Vita in the past. But the cuts to the PS VR come as a surprise, given the high level of interest in virtual reality technology.

It’s possible that Sony is simply being conservative with its production estimates, and that demand for the PS VR will increase as we get closer to launch. But for now, it’s clear that Sony’s VR headset is off to a rocky start.
