Sony Interactive Entertainment ends production of all PS4 models except one in Japan
With the PlayStation 5 launched and having stock issues, it was inevitable that Sony will start pulling the plug on the PlayStation 4.
Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia has ended most of the PlayStation 4 slim (CUH-2000 series) models and all PlayStation 4 Pro (CUH-7000 series) models in Japan, the company confirmed. The only remaining PlayStation 4 in production is the standard Jet Black 500GB model.
The original PlayStation 4 launched way back in February 2014 (which is now no longer in production), the PlayStation 4 slim launched in September 2016 in Japan, followed by PlayStation 4 Pro in November 2016.
Sony Interactive Entertainment will be switching the newly freed production lines to manufacture PlayStation 5, which continues to face extreme stock shortages everywhere.
