The previous generations of PlayStation all survived for over 10 years, and the PS4 has only just passed three.
Making capacity for more PS5s?
I do not think PS5 production has anything to do with PS4 production stop for almost all models.
They just keep at least one model to allow many players to continue their games on PS4.
No all peopel will buy PS5 in the next week or months. When I bought PS4 after 6 months from release, many people
still bought Ps3 at low prices.
They might have been waiting to see how bad the supply situation was for the holidays for PS5 before committing to the system full time.MS dropped the Xbox One S/X like right away.... straight to jail.. once the announced the new Series line.
I wonder what took Sony so long other than to think they were drawing down inventory.
