Those of you who are interested in purchasing a PlayStation 4 Pro may want to grab one quick. As spotted by The Gamer, Sony has warned that it has no plans to restock the last-gen console on its official web store. The implication here is that the PS4 Pro has been discontinued.

“THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO PLANS TO RESTOCK THIS ITEM IN THE FUTURE,” Sony screamed. The listing also notes that consoles are limited to one per household, but that’s become irrelevant, as PS4 Pro units are no longer available via PlayStation Direct.

“Heighten your experiences,” the console’s official description reads. “Let the super-charged PS4 Pro lead the way. PS4 Pro is designed to take your favorite PS4 games and add to them with more power for graphics, performance, or features for your 4K, HDR TV, or 1080p HD TV.”

The PlayStation 4 Pro was originally released on November 10, 2016. Despite having a more powerful GPU with 4.2 TFLOPS of performance and a higher-clocked CPU, some gamers have criticized it for not providing a big enough leap over the standard PS4 in terms of visual fidelity. The console has also been bashed for being noisy.
