Earlier this month, a new report appeared indicating that Sony would increase the number of PlayStation 4 units that was producing in 2022 as a way to compensate the continuous scarcity of PlayStation 5. In addition, he said that Sony originally planned to stop production in Its set for PS4 at the end of last year. When this news emerged, many fans were a bit disconcerted, especially considering how Sony has handled the jumps between generations in the past. Now, Sony itself has apparently discredited this report thanks to a new statement that has occurred.
At a date given to Japanese LAB publication, a Sony spokesman revealed that he was never in the company’s plans to finish the production of PlayStation 4 in 2021. In addition, the number of PS4 consoles that will be manufactured in the course of 2022 as a way to compensate for the scarcity of PS5. There was no plan to end the production of PS4 at the end of last year (2021), said Sony representative in a translated statement. «PS4 is one of the best-selling games consoles for SHE and, as well as the hardware of the past, produces and sells old and new hardware in parallel during the generation transition period».
As Sony itself made it clear here, it has been a common trend in the past that the company continues selling state-of-the-art hardware for a long period of time after the launch of a new console. For example, the PlayStation 3 was not officially discontinued until 2016, almost three years after the launch of the PlayStation 4. So, although the production of the PS4 will surely come to an end at some point due to the prominence of PS5, it is still Too soon so that Sony does, especially with titles such as Ions of the Ragnarök war and forbidden West will continue to reach PS4 this year.
When can you see Sony officially finishing the life cycle of the PS4? And given the success of the console, do you think new units will continue to be produced for a longer period of time than normal?
