    PlayStation Vita game cases!

    This is all i can find thus far, but I'll edit this thread and post more as they come.


    taken from: http://galaxynextdoor.com/



    I think they look pretty sweet. The blue cases are pretty rad. This is just a Japanese case, so not sure how the US/EU cases will fare in comparison.
    I am also curious to how they compare size wise to PS3,PSP and even 3DS cases (which are thinner)


    On a side-note here are some pretty colours that we will probably never see... I WANT PURPLE.

    Waste of money in my opinion. Shrink it down to 3DS style cases, or smaller. Does look nice though, visually.

    Sweet pic, where did you find it? I'll add it to the OP and hopefully soon there will be boxart for the launch games I can add

    Don't get me wrong, it looks nice, but I think it is a little unnecessary to fund such big cases for such a little card. The docs are going to be next to nothing as they've headed that way for a while now... no need for all that plastic. More plastic = more cost. Reduce that footprint...

    Thanks, and yeah F34R I agree it would cut costs and be more convenient to have smaller cases, but its hard to say how big they are and get a sense of scale from these shots they do look pretty big and will look good on my shelf though.

    Its clear from the 3DS cases which are really small and thin and have holes on the insides that they cut costs drastically from DS cases. It does make me wonder why these seem to be kinda large

    I agree F34R, it would make much more sense to do what you say. They could have even just used the size of the UMD cases which weren't all that big (even moreso considering the game-cards are fairly small)/ This looks closer to Bluray sized case, and the colour blue isnt confusing at all =P lol

    Looks aight.

    Hmm, well I was just looking at my PSP memory card and if that is any comparison to the Vita game cards, the cases are still gonna be pretty small. I mean even my 3DS games are TINY compared to the case they come in, which is probably the smallest game case I own

    Yeah to be fair, on second look I cant really tell how big they are compared to UMD/BD cases. Have to wait for some comparisons

    Suddenly to my eyes they seem a lot smaller lol

    This guy says the cases are small:

    Also using some sizings given on the Vita game card someone on that neogaf thread made a mock up picture of size comparisons

    I see, they are just longer in length than width.

    I don't mind the size much, but I am digging the boxart and the blue.

    Long live the PS2 blue cases, welcome back.

    I'll be buying all my games on the store though.

    Cheers for the comparison pics DarkVincent. Could be a bit smaller like F34R said, still look alright though =P

    I think as a handheld I would prefer all my games readily available through storage (FU proprietary sticks) meaning buying games over the store seems a better solution

    But still, the allure of having physicalilty of cases/manuals/cartridges may be a bit too much for me to avoid :C

    The cases are the only reason I'd buy physical lol they look great. I kinda hoped the PS3 cases were gonna be blue as well.

    But I have a few PSP games off the store and its just much easier and faster to change games on the XMB. If all games were available on the store I'm sure PSPgo wouldn't have failed.

    The additional plastic used to make the box this size would cost fractions of a penny. IMO having a larger footprint on retail shelves will easily offset any minuscule cost due to added size with increased sales.

    Sony should have also gone for blue cases for the PS3 to signify the Blu-ray association. Anyway these look great. Blue it seems will be the theme colour for the PlayStation Vita at launch as shown by the hardware box/packaging, the user-interface background and now these game cases.

    PS2 then it is, lol.

    Bad idea as there had to be differentiation. It was confusing enough for consumers with the HDDVD/BD fiasco.

    What is the default memory space for the VITA? We'll probably have to upgrade it straight away if we want our games from the store.

    Vita doesn't have any internal memory you have to buy cards just like with the PSP.

    and Vita game cards (the ones in the pics) are 4GB, so games could get pretty big

    Physical copies ftw
