If SNY plans to keep PS4 Pro around, this should also allow Lockhart to better compete with it. Some similar specs on paper, some better specs, with newer tech, while being fully next gen capable. Lockhart being the same price or $49 more would make quite a few people take a step back and think hard about which console to buy. If Pro get's discontinued though, then it's really just staying far enough below the PS5 DE that it makes sense financially for those who don't want or need to spend more while getting worthy 1080p/60 'next gen'.
