After having my case for an hour now and reading the other reviews of this product i thought i would add my own review to give more clarity to some misleading comments. First of all the PS Vita system does fit into the case very well and the case is well designed and made. The pressure on the Vita once inside the case however is on the sides of the console (The silver lining) to keep the system in place. There is absolutley NO pressure on the analog sticks inside, not even contact between the rubber lining and the analog sticks. I know this because i cut out the holes above the sticks to reveal there is no contact at all between the sticks and rubber lining, there is around a 2mm gap.
The locking mechanism could be better designed it can be said, however my one has no problems. I have performed 5 drop test's on mine and not once did it open. The test's taking place on carpet, tiled floor, wooden floor, concrete and grass. However it does seem that the locking mechanism will get weaker with usage. In the futre i will by a strap for it and fasten it shut.
Some people have stated that the case is rather heavy once the Vita is inside. The case itself is not heavy, The Vita is not heavy, combined they are about twice the weight of the console. I do not find this heavy.
Overall this is a very good case, it is solid and sturdy, has stylish inserts and gives full protection to your Vita console and that is exactly what i bought it for so therefor its a 9/10!
