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.
