Sony’s mantra with the PlayStation 4 is “the best place to play”, and true to its word, new Pornhub data shows that fans have been extra busy jiggling their joysticks in 2017. PlayStation systems accounted for a whopping 56 per cent of the popular site’s games console traffic last year, meaning you should probably think twice before touching your pal’s DualShock 4 in the future.
This share is up six per cent year year-over-year, while the Xbox actually accounted for seven per cent less, increasing the Japanese giant’s dominance in the only metric that matters. Bizarrely, the PS Vita still represents a reasonable five per cent of the overall traffic share, proving definitively that people prefer to play under the sheets.
Earnest as ever, Pornhub pledged its commitment to game consoles: “Pornhub’s development team works tirelessly to make sure that users can enjoy their experience on a wide variety of devices, and that includes visiting Pornhub on game consoles,” it said. “What could be better than taking a break from playing games to play with yourself? And you don’t even have to leave your seat.”
Overwatch dominated the video game character searches list, with D. Va taking top honours. In the top twenty? Pikachu. Make of that what you will.
