I kind of like the neoprene sleeve that comes with the "Starter Kit", but don't want to spend $40 on a bunch of other stuff I don't want

Love the pull n go for my 3ds
Great concept for a handheld case.
Putting the sticks in a non hard case had me nervous or I would've picked it up for the vita

I have it and like it for the 3ds as well, but for some reason I just don't care for the vita one, even though it's basically the same.

They have spacers for the sticks included in the case. It's great.

I picked up the Mad Catz Armor case tonight at Gamestop and I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. I was hoping for a much thicker plastic, like the PSP Playgear cases by Logitech; instead it's VERY thin plastic that's barely thicker than the packaging material. Of course it is packaged in such a way that you can't tell how thick it is... it's not HORRIBLE but not really what I was hoping for. (something more like the Playgear)

Anyone know if Gamestop takes returns? The guy at the store actually could not tell me if it was returnable, but actually said he THOUGHT because it was new I couldn't return it. :P

How does the Hori face cover case compare to the Mad Catz armor, if anyone's tried both?


You can't return a case to gamestop? Why the Fuck does anybody still shop there? Just buy from amazon.

The official carrying case does suck in case anyone still wasn't convinced. It just isnt practical while playing. Don't get it.

I ordered that Hori Face Cover based on reviews so hopefully that thing is more functional. I really don't like the look but I guess you can't get both decent protection and looks at the moment. Pretty glad I ordered it yesterday since it's out of stock at Amazon for now.

I just wanted to let people know to keep an eye out at Gamestop by both the Vitas and by the used PSP accessories. I found an FEB case in pristine condition at one today for $10 that was listed under "used-generic vita case." I don't expect them to keep their current ridiculous values, but I doubt I'll find it for a better price.

I laughed when the cashier asked "Did you want to preorder any games for your Vita while you're here?" Oh no, I don't have a Vita. :D

Damn, I highly doubt there's many of those floating around for $10 but good find.

I was really surprised when I found it in the PSP section. You know GS couldn't have given them more than $4 for the case.

Ok, I'm pretty damn set on that Pull n go. There just doesn't seem to be anything better on the market.

Now if somebody please tell me where I can save a few bucks on one, that'd be great. So far Google isn't being super helpful.

The Madcatz armorshell is pretty nice. The bottom part of the case has a latch where you can open and use it as stand.

I use the Madcatz armorshell and the Pull N Go case. I also tossed a skinomi screen protector on the front as I like the one I have on my phone even though I probably don't need it just overkill really.

The Pull N Go is really nice as I can put my AR cards in it and not have to worry about where they are, and the little pull out case that comes with it accounts for the sticks on the vita so I don't have to worry about them getting all messed up when I toss it into my pocket when I am out and about.

I really like the Pull n Go.

On a side note is this the Hori Screen Protector people are using?

I love the Pull and Go, even though I hate paying list price for accessories that cost $10.

I'm thinking about getting Ghost Armor on my Vita.

But seriously, I'm about to go out and get one of these at Gamestop.

Damn, I was looking for something like that for the rear touch panel. I noticed that's it more prone to get scratches then the front screen. I hope they restock them soon.

Thanks for this. I picked up the Game Traveller case at my local Target. For some reason they did not have it out on the floor and had to go into the back (not the first time I had this problem). The lady that works the Electronic department was pretty sure she only had the two Sony cases and was surprised when she found this case in the back.

As for the case itself, I really like it. It's a little thicker than I would have liked, but being able to carry 16 game cards in a case this size is pretty nice and the stand feature is a pretty nice add-on.

Amazon's not stocking the Mad Catz stuff yet, and my Vita was sitting around naked, so I was getting concerned. ;) That said I am starting to be ok with the armor shell's thinness, it's not going to help in any major damage causing incident, but just for the fact it has a back touchpad cover almost makes it entirely worth it to me, as now I can just leave the Vita on a table or desk without worrying if it'll get all scratched up. I still need to find an actual carrying case, can't say anything I've seen currently gets me too excited...

I also put on the Hori screen protector, the application went super smooth except for one rather large particle right next to the square button [like, about 1-2mm from the edge, but just far enough I can't squish it out) making a big bubble. I'm trying to figure out if I can sneak a needle in underneath to get it out. So close to a perfect application!! Bah!

Got the pull n go.

It's fantastic, the case for the system itself is solid yet portable and the bigger case can hold all your stuff!

Good buy all around.

Put a piece of tape on the protector near the edge next to the buttons. Try to pull the protector up just enough for you to get to the piece of dust. Then use another piece of tape to remove the dust (could be on the vita or on the protector). Put protector back on when done.

Was hoping to score that one case from Target but all the ones here are sold out. Pulled the trigger on the Pull n Go. Still bummed I had to spend $30 on it but at least I can now throw my Vita into my pocket or backpack without fear of it getting scratched up.

Got the Hori Face Cover today. Much more functional than the official sony carry case I was using. Anyone know if the Vita with a Hori Face Cover would still fit in a pull n go or some other case?

It will fit in a Hori case, waiting on my face cover to see if it fits in the Sony travel pouch.
