Nice case for the money
on April 20, 2015
Picked this up to protect my new PS Vita slim. There aren't many options available, but I didn't want the "vault" type. I'm not hard on my systems because I'm an adult, but I needed something to protect it in my bag. I was pleasantly surprised when this came. I'll list the pros and cons so you can make a decision.
- hard exterior will protect it from drops and being mashed in your bag
- room for 4 games on the inside, plus one in the console, so you can carry 5 total
- no branding on the outside - this is important to me because it doesn't scream that you have expensive electronics that could be stolen from your bag
- this is minor and expected for the price, but the spaces for the games are made of pleather and I'm not sure how long they'll hold up over time
- the elastic straps that hold the PS Vita seem flimsy. They're fine when the case is new, but if you take it in and out several times, as all elastic does, they will eventually stretch - not a huge issue but worth noting
All in all, for the money paid, this is a great investment to protect your Vita. Even if the elastic does wear out, it'll still protect your Vita and do it's job. If the Vita is primarily played by a younger person, you might want to go with a vault type to maximize protection. If you're like me and the Vita is a boredom killer carried occasionally, this case is perfect!
