I agree that traditionally by this point Consoles of that age should be selling for a bit cheaper. Sony however steadily keeps selling over 200k units weekly with competitor Xbox One struggling to meet 50k units, Sony is making money on the hardware now and unless sales considerably drop I can't really see a price point change until the PS5 rolls around.

That was 2019.

Right now, it's selling 150k a week (last year this period was around 230k), and with a tendency to drop deep this year

And my reply was in 2019.

I know, just saying that the situation changed since then, even though it's just been 3 months ago.

In less than a month the PS4 will be 6 years old and it's still priced at $300.

6 years and it only dropped 25% of its original asking price, and with a Slim revision release between that.

Profit if good for sure but the PS4 is around a year away from being replaced by the PS5 as the focus of Sony gaming division.

The hardware sales are starting to drop considerably as Sony's best exclusives are now well into the mid to late 2020 range for release.

The price needs to be get another cut. $250 or even $200 should be the PS4 official asking price.

Now that we are about to hit the holiday sales they'd better wait to take full benefit from the big deals slashing price power and just announce the price will not come back up to $300 anymore right after it.

Just let it go with a bang Sony, stop milking it.

I bought my PS4 Pro with death stranding brand new for 300 dollars. So that's a massive drop in price, as that's a lot less than what I paid for the original PS4 on launch day without games.

Just look around. The PS4 slim with a game was selling for around 230 dollars Black Friday until January
