All these PS4 stock issues has got me feeling like Sony is clearing stock for an official price cut, new model or new bundle coming very soon. Just my thoughts on the matter.

The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Clearly there is something going on on the sony production lines and it is not from now on, from quoting smaller shipment that fiscal year.

Or they are preparing new bundles, falls in price or even, already starting a migration to produce new hardware.

I'm curious/worried to see how the Dump tariffs/trade war will affect Sony and Nintendo since the majority of their products come from China. Not sure we'll see price cuts just yet.

They recently announced a Fortnite bundle.

Somehow they planned to ship quite less consoles this year than last year. So they need to follow their plan !

They just probably didn't expect the high demand about everywhere, hence the stock issues in many places.

Wish I knew, because that's just way bad. Apparently, there's a lot of trade-in bundles for the PS4 that steal positions in the Gamestop charts - but that would imply that people exchanged their PS4 en masse before to get enough stock for those bundles to take away that many sales.

Another reason could be people waiting for the PS4 Fortnite bundle, but that drop is too extreme for just that imo.
