PS5 shortages to ease up and sales to overtake PS4 by 2024, Sony says

Hardware shortages across the world have affected industries of all stripes. PC gamers were hit particularly hard with parts shortages, which also affected console manufacturing.

The presentation included a slide showing the comparative sales for PS4 and PS5 consoles.

Sony also upped its PS4 production due to the shortages (opens in new tab), which probably helped.
