Logitech PlayGear Pocket Lite (DS)

Back in 2005, Logitech released a carrying case for the Sony PSP called the PlayGear Pocket. The hard plastic clamshell provided protection for the PSP's big and beautiful screen, and even made that portable system a bit more comfortable to hold during long gaming sessions. Logitech has since reissued the PlayGear Pocket for newer, slimmer PSP 2000 and PSP 3000 models. And, for good measure, the company has now released a version for the Nintendo DS Lite dubbed, appropriately, the PlayGear Pocket Lite.

This clamshell is made of hard, clear plastic, but it's lined with firm, white foam rubber, so it appears to be predominantly snow white. If that's too boring for you, the good news is that the rubber lining slips out, allowing you to slide your own artwork between the plastic and the foam, thereby customising the look of the case. That's why Logitech describes the product as skinnable. The company even throws in plastic templates, so you can cut photos or printouts to fit perfectly into the case.

Your Nintendo DS Lite fits snuggly inside the bottom half of the PlayGear Pocket Lite, and it's designed to stay there while you play. (Note that it works only with DS Lite models, not the larger first-generation DS version.) For that reason, the bottom side of the case has eight cut-outs at various points around the edge: for the two shoulder buttons, the top cartridge slot, the bottom cartridge slot and power port, the volume and power switches, stylus bay and the headphone jack. As a result, you can still access all of the buttons and jacks you need. And unlike the PSP version of the PlayGear Pocket, this DS version has space (moulded into the top half of the case) to store four extra DS game packs. Add the two that can stay in the DS itself (one DS, one Game Boy cartridge), and you can travel with a total of six titles at one time.
