It was the Vault case. The clearance one should be drying up now, though there may be a few floating about still. The thing is that case was designed for the original model so it was a bit snug for some peoples liking. I think it may have varied case to case though as mime wasn't nearly as bad as others have reported.
However, the new model Vault case has just been released and its designed to cover both models. Its only 20 bucks and I guarantee its worth it.
Okay, that's what I thought it was. The clearance one is $16 so it's not a big difference. I would have thought the old version would be bigger on the new vitas. I know there was one reviewer on BBY that said the new one was too snug for their taste. With two crazy kids bouncing off the walls I definitely need to get it something sturdy so I'm sure this will do the trick. Now to decide if I want to bundle it with LoS2 that's on sale.
EDIT: Forgot I had $30 sitting in my paypal account from selling some games. LoS2 bought.
You can't beat the Club Nintendo reversible 3DS pouch as a Vita carrying case. That's what I use.
You're a wild, crazy man Zimm.
