Nice PS5 and Xbox Series sales to end out the year, the latter in particular really is in another league in terms of demand right now compared to its predecessor. If I did the math right the final hardware total for the year will be 50.3m barring any future adjustments so as long as things don't get adjusted down too much in the coming weeks it'll have managed to barely cross the 50m mark for the first time since 2012 which is nice. Even if it does get adjusted under it'll still be the highest total in close to a decade.

Overall while it would've been millions higher without shortages 2021 was still a very strong year for hardware and 2022 should be similar. Probably 1-3m lower depending on how down the Switch ends up being.
