PS5 web browser: Pornhub stats reveal why the PS5 NEEDS an internet app

Getting excited at the prospect of a PS5 web browser?

by Jason Coles

We know a lot more than we used to about the upcoming PS5, thanks to recent announcements from the latest PlayStation State of Play.

Pornhub stats say internet app could be an essential PlayStation 5 feature

Sony’s next-generation console has tonnes of features in the consoles itself, including the recently leaked Activities feature, and there’s no doubt a lot more that we haven’t been told about yet.

It’s not just a strong first-party line up that many people want from Sony, though – it takes a little bit more than that to get some gamers up in the morning. Here’s why…

Why the PS5 needs a good internet browser

A lot of people use their console as the main hub of activity in their house. That means you want to be able to stream videos, look at YouTube, and just generally surf the web.

Of course, that also means that you’re going to want to search certain particular parts of the web, like, you know, Pornhub.

That’s according to the figures that Pornhub released anyway, and while lots of gamers like to spend some time alone instead of gaming, Sony gamers, in particular, seem particularly ready to utilise a good internet browser for sexy reasons.

PS4 users apparently accounted for 51.5% of console-based traffic to Pornhub last year, with the PS Vita also providing Sony with a further 9.1% in the porn-per-console pie chart.

Will the PS5 have an internet browser?

Almost definitely. The fact is that games consoles haven’t just been used for gaming in a very long time. Even the PS2 got a lot of use as a DVD player back in the day, and things haven’t changed much now either.

If anything, we’d wager that more time is spent on non-gaming activities with consoles than ever before. It’s understandable too, with more people streaming content than ever before, a lot of consoles are the primary way in which we consume all media now, not just games.

So, it makes sense that Sony would keep that in mind and install a decent internet browser app in the PS5. Otherwise, you’re just missing out on a big demand from your audience, and that’s bad business.

The future of home entertainment? Even the naughty kind?

It’s always good to keep people happy, and if you can’t do that yourself then it’s good to allow them to make themselves happy.

So, yes, the chances are that when the figures next come out from Pornhub, the PS5 will be among the higher ranking for the word that rhymes with ranking.

There’s also a good chance that the numbers will be astronomically higher than before too, given how many people are currently at home sitting on their hands.
