It’s typ­i­cal for con­sole man­u­fac­tur­ers like Sony and Microsoft to dis­con­tin­ue their pre­vi­ous-gen­er­a­tion con­soles after their next-gen sys­tems are released. How­ev­er, it appears that both com­pa­nies are speed­ing up this process. Report­ed by the Japan­ese out­let Game­Watch, Sony has dis­con­tin­ued every mod­el of the PS4 except the stan­dard Jet Black 500GB PS4 Slim.

The most notable dis­con­tin­u­a­tion is the PS4 Pro. Game­Watch states that once the PS4s are sold, you won’t be able to buy one at retail or online any­more. Sony will instead use the pro­duc­tion capac­i­ty to make more PS5s. This is prob­a­bly best, espe­cial­ly since the PS4 Pro is $400 dol­lars, the same as the dig­i­tal edi­tion of the PS5.

It’s unclear if the PS4 Pro will be dis­con­tin­ued in the West­ern ter­ri­to­ries, but will like­ly hap­pen soon enough. Back in Decem­ber, VGC report­ed that PlaySta­tion Direct briefly stat­ed they would no longer offer PS4 Pro con­soles for sale. This notice was lat­er removed after out­lets report­ed on it.

Sony’s PlaySta­tion boss, Jim Ryan, stat­ed back in a 2019 inter­view that the tran­si­tion between the PS4 and PS5 would be more aggres­sive than pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tions, so this isn’t super sur­pris­ing. Microsoft already dis­con­tin­ued the Xbox One X back in July, with the com­pa­ny describ­ing it as a “nat­ur­al step.”
