    So I am often browsing through PS Vita accessories because bored and I've bought a few. I still dont have a PS Vita -.-
    I've already bought Persona 4 Golden Accessory Set and a Matte Hori screen protector.
    What I'm waiting on is a red lanyard strap.
    This is what also waiting on.
    PS Vita button covers that are red:

    Here's are some PS Vita bags/pouches/cases I'm deciding to get. So need some opinions lol (I know I already have the P4 Banana case but I'd like to keep it in the box while I use the P4 face cover which is awesome by the way!)
    mKeeper - Gento Game Console Case (Grey)
    WARNING! Spoilers inside!


    Street Fighter x Tekken Character Cases (Black = Heihachi, White = Ryu)
    WARNING! Spoilers inside!



    Pelican 1060 PS Vita Black Case Limited
    WARNING! Spoilers inside!


    I've been pondering over these for the last several days haha

    What do you guys think?

    I like the street fighter ones but I dunno if it's protected enough and if there is enough storage.
    Also the last one the pelican ones the pics don't load for me,

    I got the PDP Custom Crystal Case but am thinking about getting a gel armor or a trigger grip so will need a new case soon to fit it in.
    The PDP case is nice but it is limited as it only holds the vita games and memory cards.
    I still have my official sony psp carry bag though and when my Vita is in the PDP case it fits in the PSP bag really nice and I can get charger, headphones etc. in it too.
    Buying an armor or grip will make eveything I have obsolete lol so I'm kinda stuck.

    Oh sorry hope you can see it now. Just fixed it. Weird I previewed it and it was working.

    Well the SF4/Tekken Case is pretty much what you can see, Vita fits with some games and memory cards. I'm guessing its more so like a soft pouch case type. I'd probably go for the Heihachi version because white never agrees with me.

    The Pelican one (once you can see it) is pretty much the heavy duty case. I read its also makes the same containers that guns and electronics are stored. Things you see in movies used by villains haha SO its water proof, crush proof, shock etc etc etc

    The above I mentioned are expensive since they are limited. The Gento I liked also only because it seemed practical while looking decent to me, as you can store the normal 3DS as well or other electronics of similar size. Plus you can wear it on your belt...not that I would try that :P

    I like them all but I just want to buy one of them. I already went bonkers with 3DS accessories. I bought Snake Eater accessory set, Hori zip pouch, Hori pencil case looking pouch, Monster Hunter pouch (belt attachable also).

    So fingers crossed I can control myself this time around.

    I can't recommend the PDP Trigger Grips enough. Makes the Vita an absolute joy to use now and I have small hands.

    The official Sony Screen Protectors are by far the best I've ever worked with. I've done bestskinsever and skinomi screen protector in the past (the ones you water down and put on) and they dont even compare to the ease of application of the official sony screen protectors. They have a template that goes over the four buttons that makes screen placement a breeze and no water needed to apply. They're as clear as any of the previous screen protectors I've used before.

    I bought a Pelican 1060 case with Pull n Pluck foam ($25) instead of $80 for the limited edition 1060 case. It fits my Vita with the Trigger Grips on just nicely.

    I haven't deciced if I should get a screen protector for the rear touch panel or not.

    My vita is protected quite nicely now.

    Here you go.... I had to super glue the foam to the case and everything fits snug but not tight. There's no movement at all if you shake the case around. I was able to cut into the top and bottom foam and fit up to 8 different games as you can see in the pictures. I've heard about somebody doing a usb mod to do to the 1060 case for the vita but I have yet to see pictures or a thread on how to do one.

    Oh that's pretty neat. Just noticed you could also fit the Vita with the trigger grip :P Hmm do you carry that around or just to keep it out of harms way at home?

    Its kept mostly at home but if not, its in my bookbag with me. I generally don't do much gaming outside of home. It's not something you would want to carry around with you by hand with this 1060 case.

    On the plus side, the case is airtight and water resistant like from rain and accidental spills. There's a warning about not submerging the case but I bet if the case was dropped in water and quickly pulled out there wouldnt be any issues at all.

    Overall I'm pleased with the case.

    That's great to hear! Judging from what I had experience holding and testing the Vita in stores, is the 1060 box only slightly larger than the Vita or its big like a fishing tackle box? That's my first impression when I first saw the 1060.

    So I ended up getting the [IMG] now Vita is getting so much more use. The grip is amazing btw, truly great design.
    I just need a new case now to fit the Vita with the grip attached. Preferably a customizable one so I can put a Dark Souls decal on it /nerd any ideas?

    Hmm usually with decals I see a lot on Ebay for some odd reason lol Haven't not seen a Dark Soul though it may have updated with one.

    I'm not sure if there is a case capable of holding both a grip and Vita. I'll let you know when I get my case and it be a month away til my Vita arrives lol

    Hmm... it was tough finding something. So those retractable grip only makes it slightly bigger? I've only seen this travel bag thats for the original PSP system that might fit it.
    [IMG][IMG]

    Well besides the Pull n Go Folio one which is enormous in size.

    I thought I'll post this one up. This one caught my eye before. Maybe you might like. (Not sure if it fits with your grip but it might!)
