I’m back with another review for you of a silicone case for your Playstation Vita that should protect it from most minor bumps and scuffs. The case is silicone as mentioned and it covers the sides and back of the Vita while allowing full access to all of the buttons and ports. The price is about $12 so it’s not exactly expensive, but is it even worth that? Read on…
Product Name: PS Vita Silicone Case

The PS Vita Gel is designed to be a slim line protective layer for your Vita to protect against scratches and knocks while you play.
Form fitting design allows access to all controls
Acting as a second skin, the PS Vita Gel Case is custom made to fit the console perfectly. Protecting both the front and reverse faces of the console, as well as the edges which are usually susceptible damage from knocks and drops.
Additionally, the gel case features specialized cut outs to allow access to all the buttons and features of the console without interference.
High quality silicone gives extra comfort and grip while you play
Manufactured from high quality silicone, the PS Vita Gel case promotes a superior and more comfortable grip, preventing you from accidentally dropping your device and allowing you to play for longer.
Ultra slim protection against scratches and bumps
The form fitting design of the case means that it hardly adds any bulk to you Vita once applied. Furthermore, it is compatible for use with most pouch style hard cases to ensure maximum protection when travelling.

There isn’t much to the packaging, just a plastic bag.
The case is plain black, well it’s actually more of a textured style to the outer surface.
The case has slots openings for all of the buttons and ports and of course the camera.
Ok so now we’ve got my Vita next to the case:
The case is silicone but it doesn’t have much give to it like other silicone style cases do as it’s much thicker than common silicone cases are. To get it on my Vita it did take a bit of extra work stretching and getting it to fit correctly.
The case only covers the back and sides of the Vita, it wraps around and sort of hooks onto the front.
As I said the case is open to allow access to ports and buttons and the camera.
Here’s the back view, it’s fully cut open to leave the back touch pad open for use.
I did run across some slight manufacturing defects that you may have noticed in the above pictures. The ones around the camera and back touch pad aren’t really an issue but the one on the front is I think.
The front section of the case just won’t sit flat against the Vita and aesthetically it just doesn’t look good at all sticking up like that.
The PS Vita Silicone case isn’t a bad product especially if you consider the price of it. I guess you can’t expect something to be perfect and inexpensive as well right?
The case should offer decent everyday protection for the sides and back of the Vita from minor bumps and scrapes.
There are a few manufacturing flaws that might bother some people.
I have the official PlayStation Vita Leather case my Vita won’t fit in it with the silicone case on.
