Review: 4Gamers Vita range has you covered

4Gamers recently sent us some samples of its upcoming Vita accessories range so that we could have a look and bring you our impressions before the launch of Sony’s new handheld.

Given that the Vita is an expensive piece of kit, you are going to need protection and thanks to 4Gamers wide range of cases, you will not only get the protection your Vita deserves, but you will also gain some vital storage space for your games and other accessories.

4Gamers has four cases which it will launch alongside the PS Vita, three of which we have been sent to test out.

Officially Licensed Clean & Protect Pouch

The first of these cases is the clean & protect pouch, a stylish soft case with a uniquely designed cleaning cloth interior, which is obviously ideal for keeping the finger prints that your system will gather at bay. This particular pouch comes in three colours: black, red or blue. We were sent the black version and have to say that not only does it look very sleek, but it also looks like it was made to last.

Of all the cases we tested, clean & protect pouch was the smallest, however this didn’t stop it including storage for 2 game cards, a detachable carabiner clip and secure velcro fastening.

At just £8.86 on ShopTo, this is a case we could see ourselves using alot, especially for protection on shorter trips, when you don’t have too much room in your pocket.

Officially Licensed Travel Case

Next up is the Travel Case, which again is quite stylish, coming in the same three colours as the clean & protect pouch. The travel case offers a lot more protection thanks to its padded interior, meaning it’s ideal those who will go everywhere with their Vita. It’s perhaps too big to fit in anything other than a large winter jacket pocket, however if you take a bag around with you then it won’t take up too much room.

This case comes with enough space to securely store your PlayStation Vita, as well as providing storage for 5 game cards and mesh pockets for additional storage. It also comes with a wrist strap and secure zip fastening.

Drop your Vita when it’s wearing this case and it won’t feel a thing.

At just £10.85, we think this case is a bargain.

Officially Licensed PS Vita Deluxe Travel Case

Last but not least is the Deluxe Travel Case, which seems perfect for those globe trotters out there, who are always on the move. This case is a lot bigger than the others, however it provides enough storage for even the longest distance traveler.

Within it’s large walls, you will find enough room for 12 game cards as well as internal mesh pockets for additional storage, allowing you to fit in your power cable, cleaning cloth and any other accessories you may want to take along with you.

The deluxe case isn’t exactly made for short trips, however if you are constantly on the go and always carry a bag with you, then this is probably ideal.

You can pre-order the Deluxe Travel Case from ShopTo for just £14.86.


Like we say, you will need a case for your Vita and not only are 4Gamers products officially licensed, but they are also of high quality.

We tested out all three products above and were very pleased with all of them. Considering the bargain price for each of the four cases being released by 4Gamers, we’d say you can’t go far wrong if you get yourself one of these.
