    Sony: discontinued production of some PlayStation 4 models

    As pointed out and translated during the past few hours by the Twitter detective Cheesemeister, a retailer has informed customers that he will no longer receive stock of five different models of PlayStation 4 “Due to the end of production by the manufacturer“. The models in question are PS4 500GB Glacier White, PS4 1TB Jet Black, PS4 1TB Glacier White, PS4 2TB Jet Black and PS4 Pro 1TB Glacier White.
