I would recommend a screen protector for any handheld system as you'd rather deal with little bubbles that you won't notice much when it's on rather than a scratch that can ruin your screen. Your best bet is to get one of the starter packs that come with a case/screen protectors etc. while you may not end up using it all, it's nice to have it just in case.

Also, a case depends on how much you plan on traveling with your system and where. If a lot, then go for a hard case as the likely hood of it getting dropped is higher. Go soft if you just might take it to work/school/vacation once in a while.

Hope that helped.

Just get the starter kit. You get a screen cleaner, protector, a hard and soft case and a wrist cord. Without this stuff Murphy's Law will break your ****.

I picked up a blue Nerf armor and it's awesome. Gaming is much more comfortable and the back panel holds 3 games quite securely.

I also picked up a Zagg Screen HD screen protector at Best Buy. This thing is amazingly clear and I managed to get it on with no bubbles.

For storage and travel i picked up a black G-PAK Nintendo DS lite organizer at Gamestop for $2.49 and it works great.

I always buy screen protectors with every touch screen I've ever owned.

Surprisingly, the official Sony screen protectors are excellent, Smudge resistant, super easy to apply, and no dust or bubbles. I bought 4 extra while they were on sale.

I would also recommend HORI, but I blew through three and they don't protect the Vita screen from dings, and I somehow still got a lot of scratches on my device when I took it off.

Avoid Zagg for the Vita, they ruin clarity worse than other screen protectors and if you make any little indents in the screen protector, they stay on there forever. They're also a complete pain in the ass to apply.

As for cases, it depends on your Vita gaming habits. Active traveler, get a HORI Silicone protector and pair it with a HORI Hard Case or the official Vita pouch. If you game at home at lot, go for the NERF Armor or the PDP Trigger grips.

Do you NEED any of this? Damn right. The Vita's screen is NOT scratch resistant.
