    Pornhub, one of the most popular sites on the Net with more than obvious content, has reported a 10 percent drop on a single day last week. What might have happened to its visitors?

    A sharp ten percent drop for a website with 60 million daily visitors audience is a serious thing. Only something really epic could have dragged regular users away from Pornhub.

    And nothing is more epic for gamers than a new release of a legendary. long-awaited video game. This time it was the post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 4 release on November 10th.

    Pornhub statistics in the US suggest that site traffic dropped as much as 10 percent compared to a daily average for a couple of hours until noon and then again around 9 pm.

    Seems like the portal administrators do not disapprove such behavior by their visitors.

    “As huge fans of the game, we can’t say we blame anyone for swapping Pornhub time for some Pip-Boy surfing instead,” Pornhub Vice President Corey Price told GamesBeat. “We would have done the same.”

    Pornhub is reportedly in top-100 list of websites on the Internet.

    Fallout 4 is the fifth part of a series of post-apocalyptic open world action role-playing video games developed by Bethesda Game Studios. On the launch date, 12 million copies of the game — at a total value of over $750 million — were shipped, according to a company report. The number of concurrent players online at one time reached 470,000 users, breaking the record of 360,000 players set by Grand Theft Auto V.
