I had a bit of trouble opening it too but thankfully I only have to open it once ever and that was just to stick Little Deviants in which will make it's permanent home in there since im going all digital ;D.

Same here, with my "man fingers" it's hard to open it without nails, my wife however taunts me because she has claws and can open it easily =/

That was my first thought when I first opened the Vita and tried to insert a game. It's a pain in the butt to open and I have a feeling it's going to get destroyed. You can already start to see where I was inserting my nail to try and pull it off. And the fact this will be getting opened quite often, I'm a bit disappointed.

Agreed. I've tried several things, including a DS stylus and a toothpick. all of them are too thick XD.

Im worndering if theres some way to remove it. I know it clips on via little pastic hooks, Im wondering if theres a safe way to remove it without breaking it.

@KingofDreams5150: Yeah at first I figured I should go all digital, but 32GB probably isnt enough, so I decided im going to get the physical games when available. (when I say 32GB isnt enough, Im also adding in my amazingly huge collection of PSP games)

I had to buy multiple memory cards for my library of games. Just be careful when you open the game card slot or else eventually it might break or scratch.

Hmm, I had no problems with opening mine.. was very simple.. and I hesitated taking this to work with me.  I've only had time to install update, do the settings, and play like 10mins of one game and now I have it charging before i head off to work.. and guess what..

This "BABY" is going to work with me tonight heck with it! lol

I hope you have a locker or something to keep your belongings in. You definately don't want that to be stolen...

i agree they should of made it so it has something that makes it easier to grab on to... like maybe a slightly bigger notch

I have no fingernails at all almost. maybe 1mm of nails and I can open it by digging that in the Vita card slot. Strange.

A screwdriver? Don't be crazy, use any hard plastic card.
