Waterfield ships swanky PS Vita Case but sells out

Waterfield Designs's PS Vita Case isn't cheap at $49, but the company has already sold its first shipment of cases.

As I wrote back in February, Waterfield Designs, which is known for its laptop and tablet cases, has made a surprise early entry into the Sony PS Vita market with a trio of case options.

Two of the models, the minimalist Vita Suede ($12 or $15 with stretch pocket) and the PS Vita Gear Pouch Pro ($45) became available shortly after the Vita launched.

Meanwhile, the PS Vita Case ($49), which has a leather flap and is the best of the bunch, has now shipped -- but the first batch is gone.

Aside from looking stylish (the flap comes in several colors), it has a plush interior and slots for stowing game cards, plus a mesh backside to store a set of in-ear headphones.

No, this one isn't cheap at $49, but plenty of people seem willing to shell out that kind of cash for a nice Vita case, particularly since not many great ones exist. Waterfield says its next shipment is due to go out April 15 -- Tax Day, in case you've forgotten.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
