Did the Vita get this much bad press?

Everywhere you look news sources are already pronouncing the Wii U dead. Did the Vita get this much attention before it turned around?

Vita was flopping for twice as long as the Wii U's even been out. It's only recently started to pull out of a death spiral.

No because the press loved the Vita for it's hardware.

It only climbed out for a short time, only to be beaten by the 3DS again.

Oh, Vita will never beat 3DS in the long term. It's just not embarrassing itself any more.

3DS sells 3.6 million month 1, media declares it doomed. Vita finally breaks 1 million after 4 months, media declares it is doing just fine. Wii U sells 1.9 million in 43 days, media declares it a disaster.

No, it did not. That said, it does not deserve a lot of the hate it gets; it is a nice little piece of tech.

No. Thing is, the press outside of the gaming press rarely keep up with gaming news but because the Wii and DS were so big, they all reported on it the typical horrid reporting that the news normally gives. Gaming press, for the most part, is completely biased against anything that isn't Sony (don't get me started about how horrid the coverage of PC gaming content is on most gaming sites). This means, while they were super quick to shove the 3DS under the bus, most are completely ignoring the Vita's performance and now are focusing solely on Wii U. This doesn't mean the Vita hasn't had its fair share of hate but the amount of it is miniscule compared to non sony products.
