Not the worse thing out there, but the worse where it counts
on December 30, 2013
I wasn't all that upset when I first got this PS Vita addition. I was looking for a grip that fit my hands a bit better as any grown-up with a Vita can attest to, the buttons are rather close to each other and managing it can prove difficult sometimes.
The actual setup fits around the Vita nicely and the trigger buttons feel more like a console controller. However, the grips for your palms are not very "grippy"; they are rather smooth. Trying to play a game that utilizes the R2, R3, L2, and L3 buttons on the back touch pad is difficult, so I was searching for a grip that let me hold my hands where it would feel less cramped.
These setbacks were not make or break for me, and it would've received 4 stars probably. However the real problem has reared it ugly face a few days later. The triggers are starting to stick and this is a bad thing when you are playing shooting games... This is why it's been given 2 stars. To me, that's a big problem.
Overall, it fits "well" in my hands and leaves all the ports open for charging, power, volumes, memory card, vita games, etc. so it's not a POS, but the sticking triggers is a real setback. Maybe I'll oil up the actual trigger grips and this will solve my problem, but be aware this is a possibility for you to.
