However, it is legitimate to point out that these figures have also been “compromised” by the situation in which the industry is turning. It is in fact relatively difficult to be able to grab a PlayStation 5, as the stocks again this year would seem somewhat limited.

Fortunately, Turtle Beach CEO Jurgen Stark has optimistic predictions for the future. In fact, he states that by the end of 2022, thanks to the possible work of Sony and Microsoft, it will be possible to enjoy a wider availability of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S consoles.

However, simple market forecasts remain, the only foundation of which lies in the fact that Turtle Beach has managed to find the square of the circle, placing its orders well in advance of production.

Probably if the rumors about AMD, which you can read in this article, were true, it is likely that a few more units of consoles will inevitably arrive on the shelves, we will only have to wait when.
