The PlayStation 4 Pro is no longer available in Sony’s US store and should not be topped up for the time being. Sony finally heralds the end of the PS4 console generation and clears the field for the PlayStation 5 – if it is available.
Since the PS4 Pro currently costs as much as the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, the production stop by Sony was to be expected. The relatively expensive last-gen console would otherwise stand in the way of further sales of the PS5. As soon as the next-gen is available for a wider mass, the PlayStation 4 Pro no longer fills a gap in the sales portfolio.

Both Microsoft and Sony are trying to attract players to the next-gen with promotions such as visually appealing versions of last-gen titles. When both manufacturers get the current delivery bottlenecks under control is of course a different matter.
