Sony Interactive Entertainment has decided to end production of all Playstation 4 models except for one.
Sony Interactive Entertainment to End Production of All PS4 Models Except One in Japan
SIE has now stopped producing a number of Playstation 4 models in Japan, with only continuing to produce one model. This means the end of production for the Playstation 4 Pro (CUH-7000 series) and all other Playstation 4 slim versions except for one.
The only PS4 slim model that will be continued to be manufactured in Japan is the standard Playstation 4 slim 500 GB model in “Jet Black”. The Playstation 4 slim first launched in September 2016 in Japan, which was then followed by the Playstation 4 Pro in November 2016. The first Playstation 4 model (CUH-1000 series) which has already been discontinued, launched in February 2014.
By discontinuing production of these PS4 models, SIE can free up production to manufacturer the Playstation 5. Currently there are still shortages of the model in Japan, and should help generate more stock.
Currently there is no news about what will be happening for PS4 options outside of Japan, but this could be signalling a reduction in PS4 production. According to the website Tomsguide, PS4 has been facing shortages as well in the fast few months.
