    Hey so I bought a psp vita 2 years back on Craigslist, had two scratches on it but I didn't care. anyway I notice it gets scuffed up easily but I honestly can't tell if the rim around the whole thing is a screen protector or not, here are some pictures also can anyone send me a pic of what yours looks like with the flash on. to compare and contrast.

    Just try to peel it off with a fingernail. If it lifts easily, it's a screen protector. It certainly does look like one.

    It looks like a screen protector, but I can't be sure because your system is filthy. Get some isopropyl alcohol wipes and a toothbrush, man - your Vita will thank you for it.

    Thats not a screen protector, i just looked at mine, its just the light and the edges that makes it look like that....a screen protector will lift off easily from the edges.

    Definitely not a screen protector. Take better care of your vita Dude. I have a launch day vita , and several others that are as good as the day they were opened. I apply a screen protector as soon as I open any electronic. I also wash my hands before playing and wipe it down after playing. Once a year I do a teardown and cleAn all buttons and crevices with a qrubbing alcohol. Following these simple steps keeps any electronic like New. Ps try some polishing compound on your screen and it will remove some of the lighter scratches. Do not use a cutting or buffing compound it will scratch worse.
