The news stops when we say it stops: right now

Friday, 21st December 2012 16:15 GMT By Patrick Garratt

And that was 2012. We’re stopping rolling news updates from now until January 2, 2013.

We’re going to be running a series of news features going over the major stories in each month of this year starting Monday, but the news team is now standing down until the New Year.

I’d like to sincerely thank VG247′s staff and readers for an amazing year. Our traffic peaked at 1.3 million unique users in November, and I believe we’ll see further gains in 2013.

From everyone here at VG247, we hope you have a great holiday and a good rest!

    Happy holidays to all the staff. :)

    Article image needs to have trollface photoshopped onto it and “Problem?” as the headline of the paper.

    Enjoy the holidays, super cool staffy staff people persons. Thanks for a great year of news and some stellar articles. Every last one of you have been great, and I’m glad to count some of you as actual friends. You’re all awesome.

    And to the community as well, for making the comments and community as batshit insane, crazy and brilliant as it is – Manu, DSB, OlderGamer, viral, bitsnark, Clupula, GIGA, Da Man, Phoenix… way to bloody many to mention. Enjoy your holidays, and stay staf until the new year.

    I’m out. See you all in 2013. (whether you like it or not =P )
