Still Patiently Awaiting All Those ‘Vita is Doomed’ Stories

Kotaku - In today's portable edition of Speak Up on Kotaku, Domini N wonders when everyone is going to get around to forecasting the death of the PS Vita like they did with the 3DS last year. (PS Vita)

What, every week a "Vita is doomed!!!" article hits 1000 degrees or more on N4G.

Kotaku is seriously out of touch with the gaming world, it's too apparent now

funny thing is, they are among and often the first ones to write those kind of bs.

we don't see one a week that reaches 1000 degrees. that's an exaggeration.

the smarter opening comment should be...what's the point of an article that talks about potential articles?

this is such a pointless read.

This is a funny article, because it talks about the likelihood of a "Vita is Doomed" event, when they themselves contribute the most articles about it.

We need to move onto "Remember the vita?" articles, a console/handheld can only stay doomed for so long.
Darth Stewie  +   871d ago
Ignore Kotaku they seriously are nothing but a flaimbait site that does not report accurate news. FFvs13 being cancelled is a perfect example.
DragonKnight  +   871d ago
Just vote Kotaku down. Click on the + beside their name, click "WTF?" under story quality and click "No" under "like this website?"

The more people do that, the less Kotaku crap we have to see on this site. I don't even bother to read the articles they post anymore, I just vote them down right away.

Does he read articles on the website he works at?
Kran  +   871d ago
Does anyone who writes for a site? lol
jtenma  +   871d ago
He doesnt work for Kotaku -.-
CandyCaptain  +   871d ago
Don't disagree with jtenma. If you checked the article, he clearly doesn't work for Kotaku. It's a community article written by Domini N. (A frequenter of the site) It's the equivalent of the blogs/opinions here, only difference being it gets put with the rest of the news.
NoGunz  +   872d ago
There have been hundreds of "Vita is doomed" articles.
-Mezzo-  +   871d ago
Maybe the guy is not familiar with N4G, because "Vita is Dooooomed' articles are all over this place.
Tidybrutes  +   871d ago
HAHAHA is this journo living under a rock or something? lol

Im bored of all the doomed articles myself.
strauser360  +   871d ago
Is Kotaku even trying? My god they are the worst kinds of journalists. All they want to do is get hits by creating controversial titles and having people get opinionated in the comments section (like such). They really are at the bottom of the barrel here.
jtenma  +   871d ago
Kotaku picked the article, but the guy is just a commenter on the site. He doesn't work for Kotaku.

Kotaku didnt write it.
Hicken  +   871d ago
... so instead of saying, "Hey, you know the site you're submitting this article to? The site you frequent? We've had quite a few of these articles, ourselves.," they went ahead and posted this article based on nonsense?

I mean, I understand your point about the guy not being employed by Kotaku, but it doesn't really make things any better if he's a frequent site goer.
Flatbattery  +   871d ago
Sweet merciful crap, I didn't sense a single gramme of sarcasm reading that. Was this numpty only born yesterday?
jtenma  +   871d ago
You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

the person who wrote the "article" is named Domini N. Domini does not work for Kotaku.

"About Speak Up on Kotaku: Our readers have a lot to say, and sometimes what they have to say has nothing to do with the stories we run. That's why we have a forum on Kotaku called Speak Up"

It goes on to say:

"Every weekday we'll pull one of the best Speak Up posts we can find and highlight it here. At least that's how it's supposed to work."

I understand this is a pro Sony site, with trolls who troll Sony Fanboys, but if you could... FOR ONE SECOND, read the GODDAMN ARTICLES!!!

/sigh

In case you didn't get it, Kotaku DID not write it... okay?

Not defending anyone, but jeez..

So Kotaku readers are just as dumb as their writers.
SonyNGP  +   871d ago
To be honest, I've seen far dumber people here.
DragonKnight  +   871d ago
@jtenma: The fact that this guy frequents Kotaku, the fact that Kotaku has run "Vita is doooooomed" articles, and the fact that Kotaku is promoting his "blog" is enough. It can easily be classified as a Kotaku promoted article, and thus Kotaku is deserving of criticism just as much as this oblivious fool is.

And by saying "this is a pro Sony site" you're being a troll yourself.

Everyone, vote down Kotaku.
jtenma  +   871d ago
You miss the point. It is clear Kotaku runs that stuff.

It is also clear NO ONE took the time to figure out WHO wrote it.

I find people here do that frequently.
UltraVegito  +   871d ago
it amazing how oblivious this guy is.
tons of doom and gloom articles on the vita has been out~but that pretty much goes for all new systems tbh~
ironic part is the site he's posting it on the site that's been one of the first to jump on the"vita is doomed" train.

LOL, looks like he was never on N4G before.

This commenter on Kotaku....does he only go to kotaku? there have been alot of vita iz doomezd articles popping up here and there :L
tiffac008  +   871d ago
Wow did Kotaku just say there was not enough doom and gloom articles against the PS Vita? I wonder if they still consider themselves gaming journalist by not doing actual research anymore?
tarbis  +   869d ago
Was Kotaku eating those coals for the doom and gloom articles or are they really hibernating inside a cave in another dimension?
