With the goals of safety and style in mind, the Uncharted: Golden Abyss Case
is more than up to the task. The Vita fits super snugly into its aperture and will most assuredly not move around during any kind of transit. The same goes for the Game Card slots; once they are in place, they aren't going anywhere. That being said, everything is 100% retrieval ready. Special finger holes give you ready access to whatever you need to get out of the foam.
The case itself doesn't seem to be as indestructible as the foam packed inside of it. It's hard plastic with a military paint job, a couple of logos, and a tag marked with Uncharted hero Nathan Drake's name. However, I do like the sliding locks at the front, which are used to open or secure the case. Even if the case springs open after being dropped, it's hard to imagine anything flying out of it.
It's advertised on the box that the case has been optimized to have absolutely no interference with any of the Vita's wireless capabilities. I'm not sure if this is a big deal: it's almost impossible to play with the Vita while it's in the case. You have no shoulder button or rear touchscreen access whatsoever. However, if a game only requires analog stick/face button inputs, you can play it while it's encased.
