The report claims that SIE is diverting its production lines to pump out more of the newer PS5 consoles. Stocks of the current-generation continue to be scarce, owing to a number of factors. These range from production line issued stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, to unscrupulous scalpers snatching all the existing stock and reselling them for ridiculously high premiums.
And with that, if you’re looking to get a PS4 Pro, even that could start becoming a challenge. Whatever consoles that are on shelves may be the only ones that remain. As we move further into the current generation, those looking to get a PS4 will only have the basic slim model, and only in the standard black. Hopefully we see the results of this production shift to the PS5 sooner rather than later.
