Sony can sell the current PS4 slim at 199$ without loss imo, and probably tiny bit of profit.
If they actually do a super slim (7nm shrink), they *might* be able to sell at 149$ without a loss.

The possibility of a super slim (with a good price) would def. help, it increase those legs after the PS5.
Not quite as cheap as the PS2 was (after inflation) but not that far from it (118$ vs 149$).

Plus with this many units sold,.... does anyone expect 3rd party to just abandon it, the day PS5 launches?
There will be multiplats, that have both PS4 + PS5 versions at launch, for years to come, due to how popular the PS4 is.

3rd parties didn't really abandon the PS3 either. Destiny, Watch Dogs, Shadow of Mordor, AC Rogue, FF XIII Lightning Returns, South Park Stick of Truth, Dark Souls 2, Metal Gear Solid 5, Alien Isolation, Borderlands Presequel, CoD Advanced Warfare/Blackops 3, Far Cry 4, Resident Evil Revelations 2. Though you're right that PS4 support should be better.

$149 might be possible, though I don't expect we'll see it happen. If it did drop to $149 though I could see it actually beating the PS2. We're not even down to $249 yet though.
