Forums - Gaming Discussion - Sony responsible for 2.7% of all Internet traffic

Sony really doing well in that digital market. Almost 3% of all Internet traffic WW is from Sony. Netflix hugely dominant at 15% and YouTube very impressive at 11%. Prime video at 3.7% and all others combined 34%. Sony must be happy.

That's kind of crazy, I assume as other game services weren't included they're lower. Which be surprising for steam, not for the other consoles though.



hmm, seems to be a bit of a misleading title. Makes it sound like 15% of internet users use Netflix or that 15% of time spent on the internet is on Netflix or something but the stats are only for mbs of data which is completely different. It would be nice if things could be labelled accurately rather than twisted to make things sound better or worse than they actually are, but with humanity the way it is there's not much chance of that ever happening

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Internet Traffic is measured in amount of data, I don't find it misleading and certainly not twisted.

only misleading if you don't know the meaning of words

always seeing conspiracies everywhere... that is, as well, the way humanity is xD

I don't really find it misleading, but I understand what you're saying.  It would be interesting to also see the stats for what websites get significant amounts of  people's time, rather than just amount of data use. Obviously, data use is going to skew towards data-intensive activities like streaming video and downloading gigantic video game files.

Yeah, my first thought was "shouldn't Wikipedia or something be there?" I wonder how things would actually rank in terms of use rather than strictly data.

how would you measure that? by self reporting?

 

"I swear, I totally didn't spend 2 hours on youPr0n yesterday" :D

 

Once the data is loaded, no one can tell how long of your personal time you spend looking at whatever website. It has to be measured by volume of data being transfered



Excuse me Sir, an honest question: Are you in love with the company?
