Pornhub has revealed the top consoles when it comes to browsing the site’s content.

As part of the site’s annual year-in-review, Pornhub shared data about the biggest traffic drivers – as far as game consoles – in 2017. PlayStation dominated the majority of traffic, representing 56%.

Xbox, on the other hand, dropped by 6% since 2016, and now accounts for 32% of all console traffic. It’s still the biggest platform after PlayStation, and well above Nintendo’s Wii, WiiU, and 3DS.

Speaking of the 3DS, the console saw a 110% growth in 2017. Even then, it still generated a meagre 1% of the overall game console traffic. PlayStation Vita ruled handhelds, at 5%. The Switch does not yet have a web browser, so it didn’t chart.

Pornhub doesn’t typically share per-console data, though it would be amusing to find out if certain older consoles are being used more to watch porn than as game machines. Take a look at the full chart below:
