Starting at 5am traffic began to drop, down as much as 10% from 7am till noon. In the afternoon traffic returned to normal, but after 6pm it dropped again when we assume that 9-5 workers arrived home and fired up their games.
That’s right, the Fallout 4 launch was so big that the internet’s biggest porn site felt it.
By the way, that link itself is safe for work, but it goes to the freaking Pornhub domain, so what do you imagine your wife/boss/IT department will think you’re doing?
Remember, this is the internet where, at one point, a research team needed a group of young adult males who had never “consumed” any porn for control group for a study … and came up dry. They couldn’t find anybody who met that criteria.
Lest you think that Fallout 4 changed the internet for good however, there is also this quote from the same post.
After midnight it seems like everyone finally took a break, and traffic jumped as high at 15% above daily norms.
A little something to take the edge off and help you get to sleep after a long evening of gaming?
