This case will carry the PS Vita and nothing else which is fine for carrying it around protected. But once open for some gaming the case is cumbersome. The front and back flaps can be left hanging which feels weird and uncomfortable. Or one can flip the front flap to the back and you are left with this bulky unstable holding arrangement.

The good part is that this case is easy to put on and take out, that way you can carry your Vita protected, take it out of the case and use it.

I really dont like this case. I will keep using the case included in the first edition bundle for moving around with my vita. Either way the vita is not pocket friendly, so might as well use a case that can hold some games, memory card and usb cable.

I bought this case because it was the only one they had at the store. When I got home and opened it I could tell there was going to be a problem. There's nowhere to put any games and it only covers the front and back of the Vita leaving the sides exposed. You can play the system while it's still attached, but it's not the most comfortable experience to say the least. Your fingers will rub against the edges of the case and it's hard to get a good grip. The one good thing is this case doubles as a stand and that actually works well. I'm not sure if I'm going to return it yet, but I was definitely expecting more since this is made by Sony.

Like some others I bought this case as it was the only one available. Once I snapped it on I could see how things were going to go. the sides of the case are stiff and the Vita is held inside by a plastic bracket that snaps into the holes created by the lower loops on the system. At first the rubbery section holding them together was stiff making the system bulky to hold and maneuver. I tried using the velcro strip to hold the flaps together as they dangled off the bottom of the Vita and that worked for a while, though the system was still heavier than was comfortable, especially when trying to play sitting down (which is going to happen a lot with the short battery life and short power cable provided.)

Also, unless you're going to leave the case opened, you cannot charge the Vita while it's in the case.

The problem was that the case only did a mediocre job of actually protecting the Vita. The bracket is held to the case by a strip of cloth that has a bit too much play in it, so snapping the case shut and fastening the velcro strip still leaves some wiggle room. The best way I can describe the setup is it's like holding an ice cream sandwich which has started to melt. The Vita shifts all over and has a tendency to flop out the sides a little bit, which makes the case useless if you happen to drop the system. The bracket itself - which the whole assembly hinges on - is anchored by two tiny clips that can be popped off easily enough, but either one breaking will render the whole case useless.

Also I should add that the semigloss rubbery leather texture of the case is nice to look at but is like a magnet for fingerprints and any grease on your hands.

I don't know what they were thinking when they designed this case. They probably weren't thinking at all. It snaps on right, but when you flip the back cover down it only goes down to a certain angle and just stays there. It presses down against your fingers and you can hardly use the back panel. It has a very bulky design and the top and bottom parts are needlessly bigger than your Vita for some weird reason. And then when you hook it to the back and strap the case shut, your Vita is just flopping in there. If it hits the ground the sides are most DEFINITELY gonna get damaged. So... the question begs to be answered. What is the case protecting the Vita from? Dust. That's all I can think of. A whale of a flop. Stay clear. I am sticking with my PSP style slide in pouch for now.

This product looks very nice and seems to be of good quality. Unfortunately it comes up in the search for cases for a PS Vita slim, but the slim will not fit in this case as the clips are the wrong size. I returned the item with no problem and am only writing a review in the hopes that others will not make the same mistake since nothing in the product description indicates that it is not compatible with the slim.

This case replaces the same Sony carrying case that I bought with my original PS Vita when it launched years back. The case is now very inexpensive as demand for it weans. The timing of this purchase coincides with the Remote Play features of the PS4 which I really like. The PS Vita sadly has very games worth playing and as a general device was a disappointment for h

Pros:
-The case provides good general protection though there's risk of it sliding out on a hard drop
-The stand is stronger and more durable than it looks.

Cons:
-The flexible material that holds the two pieces together will wear out and crack over time regardless of the user's care.
-The velcro close-flap does add a small amount of unnecessary thickness to the device.
-The device slides around a little while using it in the stand-mode. It's best used in your hand and not on a table.
