PlayStation dominates Pornhub console traffic in 2017, and the Nintendo 3DS finds its niche

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:
