Sorry, but those cases look like cheap flea market ripoffs compared to the first edition bundle clamshell, despite the vita travel pouch being an official Sony product.

Next to the first edition clamshell, this is the nicest case:

The Hori one is a Sony Licensed product and I believe it looks very nice, especially in the flesh.

The Hori looks like the nicest case for its size.

The first edition looks good, but i cant get over that faux lizard skin exterior.

The thrustmaster case just posted looks nice, but I tried to only keep readily available cases in the OP.

Yea, despite it being a sony licensed product, it still looks like a fanny pack.

No love for the thrustmaster VIP glasses style hard case? That hori fanny pack won't protect your vita from getting squished.

Lol. It actually does stand up to a lot of pressure, because it's, well, a hard case. Is it "tougher" than the Thrustmaster, probably not, but it is as tough as the FEB. It also holds 3 games/memory cards, which the Thrustmaster does not. I suppose we are both set in our opinions so no need to go round and round any further. :up:

The Hori on is the same i'm using on PSP Lite. The Sony one from FEB from the pictures looks like the best out of all in quality which is unusual from their previous cases. Can't do either Thrustmaster, I'll be wrapping my Vita like a gold coin (Screen Protector + Full Body Shield + Protect Frame) just like I did with my PSP Lite and their cases won't fit with that on. Quality wise Hori has been the best for portables but if you want supreme protection where you can put into a case and take you car and run it over knowing it won't get smashed get a Otter Box.

I went with the PDP custom crystal case, I pruchased it at gamestop. I wonder why on Amazon, they show you get the uncharted graphic inserts for front of case. When I purchased from GameStop, I got 5 inserts like Amazon said but its only a blue vita insert, 2x F-zero 2048 inserts, 2x little Deviants inserts, but no uncharted : (. Anyhow the case is great, holds 2 memory cards, and 8 games. Very high quality, great protection, worth every penny.

I almost got that pouch until I stumbled upon the case I got. I really like the extra space the pouch has, but the Hori case has a hard outer shell. It was a tough choice, but I went with the Hori in the end. Either one is a great choice. Ideally, I would want the FEB case though. I just don't think they will sell it separately.


Main reason I went with the pouch was the extra space. Seems like people will need to be carrying their AC adapters around with them, and most cases don't have space for that. Plus the pouch holds a bunch of games and other stuff.

As for the Vita, I'm considering a shell for it, besides the screen protectors. Although as some have pointed out, shells can collect dust which can be a problem.

Would be nice if Otterbox made a case for the Vita, I have one for my Droid X and its fantastic; completely protects the phone from most potential problems.

That looks like a very nice clamshell case, similar to the FEB bundle case (which I like). I just copped out and ordered the Vita travel pouch, mainly because it holds a lot of extra stuff; but I could see getting the one you ordered, or the FEB case if it is ever sold separately.

The problem with this case is that it doesn't open all the way, so the zipper could potentially scratch the screen.

True, but I'll have a screen protector on the Vita day1, so I don't think that will happen. But I am considering other cases as well.

You'll just wind up scratching the screen protector, and the rest of the vita body.

OK I'm paranoid now, cancelled the pouch. Will look at Hori or Thrustmaster case, but if I import either I probably won't have it when the system arrives. Bummer! :cry:

i am looking for something that fits the vita tightly has anyone seen something like this? it's not so bad in your pocket without a case. the first edition one is way too thick that i'm just using the cheap one i got on ebay that is skinnier.

For what it's worth, the Hori case to exactly 11 days, from when it shipped, to get here (Texas) from yesasia.

I got the same one you did from Play-Asia, except I got the blue one. It cost me around $27 shipped, but I ordered it Monday and it came today.

Whats the difference from the case you guys are talking about and the half-the-price Hori case on Amazon?

My first choice was to go with Play-Asia, but they were back-ordered forever on the Black case. That's why I went yesasia. I knew the shipping would take a while, but it was free and I ordered it way before I would need it. I love the case by the way. What about you?

The one Amazon has holds 2 games and looks like this.

Spoiler


The one we got holds 3 games and looks a little bit like the FEB case.

Spoiler


I think it just looks better. Just my opinion though.

Well, they look a hell of a lot better than the Hori Hard Cases on Amazon, and I really don't like how those ones open compared to the one I got.

I love it, the color is a bit darker than I thought compared to the pictures, but it's still awesome. Now UPS just needs to drop off my Vita to go in it.

Man I have now idea what case to get. The Hori one people seem to be gravitating to can only carry like 2 or 3 games or something like that. I'm temped by that $25 starter bundle I saw at Gamestop.

Also what is a good source for wrist straps?

If you want one that holds a lot of games, then maybe the PDP case is the one for you.

You can change out the front insert with anything like the old Logitech PSP case.

Or go extreme with this case from PDP.

I'm kinda of wondering why I haven't noticed this one being mentioned more in this thread. http://www.gamestop....#productDetails Unless I'm over looking something it seems to be the best bang for buck. Is it only carried at Gamestop?

I believe this is the HORI case





Here is the cover case by Sony





You can figure it out



Here is the carrying pouch from Japan

http://www.amazon.co...68&sr=1-2-spell

About 2 minutes in




I think I'll just get the Sony pouch. I won't take it out of the house and it will be a good place to store it when not in use.

After that video for the Hori, I have changed my mind. You can't have the games against the screen like that.

I guess I am back to the travel case.

Don't get the PDP crystal case, I've discovered a flaw, if it has an impact (even a light one) on the hinges, the thing flies open. Not the kind of protection you want in a case for a 250 dollar console.

Is there any way to order the Thrustmaster case if you're living in the U.S? I tried ordering it on Amazon.uk, but it said it couldn't ship to CA.
