Denial of restarting production of PS4 emergency PS5 out of stock Sony: no plan to discontinue production of this generation | Game Corner | Digital

Not long ago, Bloomberg reported that PS4, which had been discontinued, will be put on the production line again, adding 1 million units to deal with the shortage of next-generation consoles. However, officials have clarified that such claims are not true.

A Sony spokesperson recentlyInterviewed by Japanese media NLab, denied that the company decided to continue producing this generation of consoles in order to make up for the shortage of PS5, emphasizing that there was no plan to stop production of PS4 last year.

In addition, it is added that the PS4 is still one of Sony Interactive Entertainment‘s best-selling game consoles, and as long as consumers still need it, it will produce and sell both new and old consoles during the generational transition.

Aside from official clarification, Sony will continue to sell older consoles from the previous generation for several years after the new console comes out.

For example, the PS3 console was not officially discontinued in Japan until 2017, when the PS4 console had been available globally for four years. Even the PS2 console was discontinued globally after the PS3 was on the market for about 7 years.

Although Sony has no intention of ending the production of this generation of consoles, rival Microsoft announced that it has officially discontinued the entire series of Xbox One consoles at the end of 2020, focusing on the current-generation consoles of the Xbox Series X/S.
