PS4 Pro No Longer Being Sold By PlayStation Direct, Prompting Rumors It Will Be Discontinued

Sony’s PS4 Pro will no longer be sold by the company’s PlayStation Direct store, prompting speculation that the 2016 mid-cycle system may be discontinued outright.

The US-based store currently lists both the PS4 Pro and PS4 as out of stock, and it looks like the former won’t be sold at any point down the line. A message reads: “There are currently no plans to restock this item in the future.”

Right now Sony Interactive Entertainment hasn’t said anything about discontinuing the PS4 family of consoles, and seeing as how it’s said that the console will be supported for another 3-4 years, it’s unlikely to do so yet.

The PS4 Pro launched back in November 2016 as mid-cycle refresh, similar to what Microsoft would do with the Xbox One X a year later. The system is more powerful than the base PS4, and features the ability to play games in 4K resolution and experience faster load times among other features.
