Stylish Hard-shell case exclusively designed for PlayStation Vita

With the V.I.P. Case for PS Vita, Thrustmaster has taken a very fashion-oriented approach: it has been designed for PS Vita owners looking for a touch of elegance and style. This case was created for V.I.P. (Very Important Player) users who appreciate pure lines and aesthetically pleasing creations.

Their PS Vita, like any important personality, must be able to enjoy discreet protection that's also efficient – like a personal bodyguard. The V.I.P. Case for PS Vita is perfectly tailored to the shape of the console. What's more, its main color codes – black and silver – are in perfect harmony with those of the PS Vita.

The materials employed allow for external rigidity as well as optimal internal protection, particularly with the use of felt on the inside of the case to protect the PS Vita’s screen from scratches. The design of the V.I.P. Case for PS Vita has been optimized for the PS Vita’s wireless functions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap! 5 Mar 2012

This is not the premium product it pretends to be. It's made from really cheap plastic and doesn't remotely feel like the expensive glasses case it claims to be. I wish there had been some reviews when I ordered it.

It's not worth the asking price and I suggest avoiding it. It's certainly not the case for you 200 new toy.

For the first time I'm going to return a working product.

I bought this case as it gave the impression that it was a premium smart-looking case, and also I hoped it wouldn't be much bulkier than the Vita itself.

My first impressions were that the packaging looked a bit tacky. The top of the case (as seen in the pictures) looks quite good; it's matte black and is quite slim, but the bottom of the case is a cheap-looking glossy black, and also quite thick.

Overall the case looks big, it's about twice as tall as the Vita, and slightly wider. I think a smaller case would look better, but then perhaps you'd be sacrificing some protection.

Once the Vita is in the case, you can access the front face, but you can't access any of the controls or ports on the top/bottom/rear - so you'll need to take the Vita out for most games. When the case is open, the top only opens to just short of 90 degrees (like a glasses case) - so you can't use the case as a stand for watching movies. When in the case, the Vita fits so snugly that you have to use the provided ribbon to pull the Vita out.

There's a lot of empty space in the top half of the case, so there's no concern that the analogue sticks are getting squashed. The case is felt-lined, but doesn't have any cushioning, so if you were to drop the case with the Vita inside it might still get quite an impact whilst inside the case. I don't think you have to worry about the Vita falling out of the case if you drop the case, because although there is no catch or lock, the case closing mechanism is a strong spring.

The case itself is basic, there's no extra pouches or pockets for leads or game cards - or holes to charge the Vita whilst in the case. The case does seem tough, you'd have to use a lot of force to damage the Vita through the case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Protection 11 Mar 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have actually dropped this case onto concrete with a vita inside and I have to say I was impressed!
The Vita has no problems from the impact and was fully protected!

Definitely not quite what I was expecting, the case is extremely light and feels very cheaply made. The top half has a nice rubber coating, just a shame they decided to make the bottom half out of an old biscuit packet. Inside is lined with a nice soft coating and there is a pull tab so you can easily get the system out. It's all a little hit and miss, but overall its alright.

1.0 out of 5 stars What were they thinking? 12 Mar 2012
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Do not buy this product.

I, like you, thought that this was the most stylish looking protective case for the Vita. The pictures make it look amazing. Don't be fooled.

I really very rarely review products on here unless I feel like I should let people know about them one way or the other.
Any interested person needs to be made aware of how cheap and tacky this case is. In addition to the horrible materials used and shoddy build quality, the case doesn't even properly stay closed. There's a millimeter gap in between both halves of the case which will lead to dust, grit and whatever else is in your bag getting inside and ruining your expensive Vita.

I also don't trust it to protect my console from drops - I'm certain it would shatter instantly, and the hinge certainly wouldn't survive the drop

I am very certain that you could get a much better case for much less money.

Extremely cheap plastic. Avoid the Thrustmaster PSVita cases at all costs (well, buy them if you get them for a buck or less).

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor quality product
This is a very poor quality product. For a "VIP' case, the plastic used is worse then those glasses cases that opticians gives out for free. Definitely not worth the asking price.
