    Custom Vita Case

    I'm finishing up my Custom Vita Case. I will add photos this week.

    Checking to see what interest other Vita owners would have.

    This case is aluminum and measures: 10 x 13 x 4.5. The inside is a dense foam material, but it will hold the following:

    PS Vita (without having to remove Trigger Grips or Power Grips or whatever Grip you have or use)
    4 - 6 games (full cases with the spine up)
    Charger

    I did this because I hated removing my Trigger Grips each time I wanted to safely house my Vita.

    For anyone else, I will customize the foam to hold the attached PS Vita accessory you choose and up to 6 full sized game cases. I have no idea what anyone would be willing to pay for a case like this.

    Thoughts? Ideas? Anything I'm missing that I should add?

    Custom fabricating a mobile case for your Vita sounds like a fun project Can't wait to see photos.

    How do I upload photos? Do I have to post them to a host site first?

    You can upload images to a site like photobucket and copy paste the IMG codes into your post

    Yes, that would be the easiest way. Looking forward to seeing your case.

    I'm actually interested in seeing what you got. Haven't found any cases that peaked my interest yet. Mainly, because they don't carry everything. I mean, seriously, wtf!? You give me 12 foot of plugin but nothing to put it in when I'm away from house and want to play my............ wait for it........ "mobile" device

    But as I said in my OP. IT WON'T HOLD THE VITA and TRIGGER GRIP or POWER GRIP. I have that case. I just sold it becuase I don't want to pull my Vita in and out of the Trigger Grip every single time, I want to put in into a dust free case.

    I am still working on my case, but it's coming along nicely. I should have pics by Saturday. I just opened an Imgur account last night.

    Teaser. Here's the outside of the case. I'm still deciding on placement and making sure everything I want is included.

    Remember the size is: 13" (W) x 10" (L) x 4.5" (Depth)

    For some reason I was thinking you where making it from scratch.

    Actually not a terrible idea, using a hard camera case and cutting foam to fit what you want. Those are actually decent cases and fairly affordable at around 15-20 bucks with shipping

    I am highly interested in a case that I can keep my PDP Trigger Grips on the Vita when placing it. Glad to see I'm not the only one.

    Sorry, I'm not that good!

    Yeah, this is a Vivitar Hard Case with foam inserts. I'm using a hot knife to cut custom portions to fit exactly what I want. I just think that most people are paying $15 - $30 for a Vita case and they're settling for whatever Sony wants to provide. This is custom case within the same price bracket but it holds what you want it to hold!

    OK. So here's the inside. I left a thumb hole under the Vita and across the top for easy lift out. The Vita is sitting very securely here. I also made only 3 game slots, so far. As you can see there is room to the left for either more games or the charger. Right now the charger is stored underneath what you can see here. So everything is contained in this one case. You can also see that there is room for me to customize this for the Nyko Power Grips instead of the Trigger Grips as shown. Any ideas on what to put to the left of the games? I could make a small place for the charger and then store the cords underneath or I could open more game slots. THOUGHTS?

    Nice!

    I like the simplistic yet functional design of the case. Plenty of room for additional games, Blutooth headset, additional memory storage, etc.

    Huh, that's pretty good. Although it won't be of use to me because I don't own any retail games yet and I don't use my Vita outside besides listening to music.
