The cool part about portable gaming consoles like the PSP is that you can take them with you wherever you go. The bad part about that type of mobility is that is means the PSP is light and won’t stand up to drops and mishandling at the airport. The good news is that Logitech has a great product to go along with your PSP in the form of a case to keep your PSP safe called the Logitech PlayGear Pocket. Read the full review for all the details.
The Logitech PlayGear Pocket is a very durable polycarbonate case that fully encloses your PSP when closed. The case is clear, but has a black rubber insert that both cushions the PSP inside and makes the case have a black color.
Cutouts on the shoulders of the Logitech PlayGear Pocket allow you to use the shoulder buttons on your PSP and access all controls like the power switch and the headphone jack without needing to remove the PSP from the case. The lid of the case doubles as a sun shade to keep glare off the screen of your PSP if you are gaming in bright rooms out outdoors and can move 270 degrees.
On the front of the case is a push release latch that keeps the lid of the Logitech PlayGear Pocket closed tightly during transport. All this protection doesn’t come without a price. The Logitech PlayGear Pocket pretty much doubles the weight of your PSP and the additional girth is very noticeable when playing games with the PSP inside the case. My 6-year old son refuses to play the PSP when it is in the case because of the extra weight.
Thankfully, the PSP isn’t secured inside the case by anything other than light force and the natural grip of the snug fitting black rubber inside. That means you can simply grab the PSP and take it out of the case is the extra weight bothers you. Of course if you do that you are giving up the luxury of protection for your PSP if you should happen to drop it.
If you like to take your PSP with you inside a backpack or briefcase the screen and shiny finish won’t last long before they are covered in scratches, the Logitech PlayGear Pocket will eliminate that problem. The only real downside to the Logitech PlayGear Pocket is the extra weight that it adds to your bag.
- Very durable case
- Easy to open lid
- Allows access to all PSP controls
- Adds significantly to the weight of the PSP
So long as you don’t mind basically doubling the weight of your PSP while on the go by adding the Logitech PlayGear Pocket as protection, there are no faults with this case. It’s even cheap at only $14.99, just be sure you can heft the extra weight.
