I really want the pouch, but I'm going to be getting a 32GB card and the other headphones. I don't really care much for the other carrying cases, and want this pouch. But unfortunately Sony isn't selling it separately. Would anyone want to sell just the pouch? It's a long shot, but I figured I'd just ask.
Couldn't find it anywhere. I've been looking. Hopefully it'll pop up soon. I could only find the carrying case, which was also 19.99. But I couldn't find the pouch. I don't care to much for the carrying case either, it covers the face and back, but the sides are completely exposed. It seems like the pouch provides the most coverage without adding much to the thickness. Hopefully they will sell it separately.
I've considered doing that, but the only import site that I really trust is PlayAsia, and they're asking $25 just as a base price, then another $7.60 for shipping; and probably tax too. So it gets pretty expensive pretty fast.
Nope, if you look at the other pictures it's actually an extremely thick case meant for travel, it holds games, cords, etc. and it's not pocketable at all. The one in the starter kit is just a pouch, like the one that came with the value pack psps.
It would be great for protecting it from getting scratched if it were rubbed across a surface like a metal zipper or a key or two in the same pocket. It would not help with drops or excess pressure. Though drops should not really be a concern given the plastic instead of glass for the screen and the lack of moving parts.
solution found: buy the starter kit, enjoy the awesome pouch, and use the 4gb stick for the JPN account you can create, and play wacky japanese games that other people wont get to play, like i am going to do. its going to be fun.
I'm in the same pickle. I loved the soft cloth case that came with my launch PSP and I want a similar one for my Vita (for when I stick it in my bag). Shame it's not sold separately. Maybe I can find one on ebay around launch...
I just ordered a Vita from work and it comes with the starter kit. But I'm getting the Hori Face Cover. Castro if you still interested let me know? My package was ordered but shold hopefully arrive sometime next week.
