I specifically bought this to use my PS Vita's remote play feature with the PS4. Without the grip, my hands would always touch the back touchpad on the PS Vita, which during remote play is the R2/L2 buttons on the PS4. So playing games like killzone and need for speed were almost impossible. This definitely fixes that problem.
For playing PS Vita games, I used it to play the Uncharted: Golden Abyss and its great! It makes the whole gameplay a lot better and definitely makes it feel more like a PS3/PS4 controller.
-Fixes Remote Play L2/R2 issue with the PS4
-Soft in your hand
-Not to expensive
-Doesnt cover most of the ports, except charging port
-Covers charging port (not an issue unless you are charging and playing at the same time)
-Obviously doesnt allow the PS Vita to fit into your pocket or other storage areas easily
Overall, I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a PS Vita, even if you dont use the remote play feature with the ps4, this is great to have just to play PS Vita games, its soft and molded perfectly to fit into your hands. I havent hand that issue that it moves around when docked as other reviewers have mentioned, mine seems pretty sturdy and set in when i attach the grip to the PS Vita. I bought it from Amazon for $13 and it shipped right on time with Prime.
If you have any questions let me know! I hope this helps :)
At the bottom you have a sliding, locking mechanism that keeps the Vita locked securely. On the back you have full access to the rear touch panel and I didn't experience any problems when playing games that use that feature. You have access to all the buttons, bumpers, headset jack and the cameras as well. Also, the grip doesn't put any pressure on the Vita at all, so there's no chance of it scratching it; it grabs the vita by the edges and I haven't seen any marks left on it.
The grip does have some flaws, first, there's no access to the charging port or the game slot, you have to get the Vita out of the grip to change games and charge; also, the Volume and power buttons are kinda hard to press/access , not incredibly hard, but it takes some getting used to.
Even with its flaws, this is probably the best grip on the market and it deserves the 5 star rank. If you want a huge improvement in comfort during your gaming sessions, do not hesitate to buy this grip, it is great.
I took some pictures of it, so you can have an idea of what it looks like, you can view 'em above. Hope this helps.
The grip is still doing its job without a single issue. It's been 6 months now and have used it everyday. Still works and looks new. Great purchase. You won't regret it.
If you're deciding between this grip and the nyko, check my review of the Nyko grip. Nyko Power Grip for Vita. Trust me, you want to stick to the CTA.
There are several Vita grips on the market, and after doing an extensive amount of research, I settled on picking up the CTA Digital PS Vita Hand Grip. My reasons for wanting a grip are similar to many who seek such an accessory: I have big, strong Rock Biter hands, and I simply couldn't stand the thought of the Nothing ripping my brand new Vita from their clutches.
Bonus points if you get the reference. I'm probably showing my age!
Suffice it to say, holding the Vita in a position where I can easily get to the shoulder buttons is an awkward task. Either my hands are all over the rear touch pad, or I hold it in such a way that I feel like I'm going to drop it. I needed something to add support, and I wasn't happy with the size or shape of the PDP Trigger Grip (although I may be the only person who likes the idea of the lower triggers replacing the shoulder buttons).
I received the Grip from Amazon around the first of the month, and was immediately in love with it. The handles feel good and I'm able to hold it comfortably, even when laying flat on my back in bed. After fooling with the home screen for a while, I wanted to get on Amazon and give the grip a 5 star rating.
But then I decided to play a game, and I noticed ... It. I'm sure you're aware to what I refer: the dread system jiggle.
Yes, as other reviews have pointed out, the Vita does shift ever so slightly in the grip. I'm not sure I would use the word jiggle -- even though I just have -- as that's not really what it does. You can flip the grip over and give it an almighty shake and the Vita doesn't move at all. It holds the system very snug. The problem is closer to that of an un-level kitchen table: if you press down on one corner of the system, the other corner of the system will rise ever so slightly, and vice versa. It's one of those things that, once you notice it, you can't un-notice it.
I thought I could deal with it, that it wouldn't bother me. But after nearly three weeks of playing Persona 4 Golden and Uncharted: Golden Abyss, it has become really distracting. It's especially bad if I'm laying on my back with the system facing down toward me from above. I'm not sure why. It's probably got something to do with science. I'm not good with science, so I decided to toss the grip in a drawer and buy the PDP Trigger Grip to replace it, but not before logging onto Amazon to give this grip a 3 star review.
Why then, you may be asking, did I give it a 5 star rating? Because high school workshop-style inspiration intervened.
Rather than chunk the grip in a drawer, I decided to try and make it level. I took a paper towel, tore a long, thin strip off the side, then folded it over several times. When I had it down at a size I thought was appropriate, I tucked it in the bottom right corner of the grip and slipped the Vita in over it.
And like magic, the wobble was gone!
The Vita doesn't sit any more firmly in the grip than it did before, but now it's stable. Thus far, that piece of paper towel has had no adverse effects on the Vita or the grip (if that changes, I'll post an update to the review). I'm thinking about maybe stacking a couple of strips of electrical tape inside the corner of the Vita grip instead of using a bit of paper towel. Electrical tape is nice and smooth on the non-sticky side, it's just about the same color as the grip, and it'll be out of sight when the Vita is slotted in, so having it there is no big deal (if I do go that route, I'll update the review).
At the end of the day, I'm actually giving the grip a 4.5 star review -- having knocked off half a star for the design flaw that causes the wobble -- but Amazon only allows full-star reviews, so I gave it five. The grip feels great in my hands, and it just takes a little bit of simple DYI to make the whole thing rock solid. If you're willing to put the tiniest bit of effort into leveling the Vita, it's easy peasy. I'll even include some photos of how I've done it, so you can see it for yourself.
If you simply can't stand any of the other grips on the market, this one is a great buy!
UPDATE: It's now February 1st, 2014. Almost four months have passed and I'm still using this grip. I did eventually swap out the small strip of paper towel with a couple of strips of electrical tape and the system continues to remain firmly in place with no noticeable wobble and no adverse side effects on the Vita itself. For the price, this thing has been well worth it!
