I agree it (probably - depends on Nintendo's strategy) won't. But the reasons why are interesting. It's primarily because Sony's strategy seems to be to cut the PS4's legs out from under it in order to increase PS5 take-up, creating shortages by moving production to PS5 (which won't be returned regardless of demand) and not reducing the price.

The PS4 could have had very strong post-predecessor sales, but I think Sony's calculated that a PS2 v PS3 scenario (where a budget-priced PS4 continues to be produced alongside the more expensive next-gen platform) isn't as profitable as trying to move most of those purchases straight on to the PS5.
