Did you buy this product for yourself or someone else? For me
This is my second Gaems purchase and I am completely satisfied with my purchase. This portable Gaeming case is excellent for mobile gamers, families, LAN parties, students, military and anyone who wants to protect their Xbox or PS3 while having the option to quickly and easily move it. I have been in all of those categories and used it for all of those purposes. It is great for around the house. In my experience when I am gaeming in my room and my wife wants to go to bed I can pack up, move into the living room and continue my gaeming session. I highly recommend buying this product before it sells out.
Once I received my Vanguard, I placed my H4 Console into it and powered them up. The blue accent lighting on the side of the display is not too strong to impede gaming but adds to its aesthetics. Unfortunately due to school, I did not get to fully test the Vanguard until the following week...after a car accident which placed me on bed-rest for a few days. Anyway, it meant that the Vanguard would get my full attention and keep me company with Black Ops 2.
The display on it is pretty awesome, cut scenes from Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 looked sharp as the Vanguard produced great looking picture. My Xbox defaults to 720p and I find no major difference between 720p and 1080p on displays this size. Gaems has worked hard to create a lag-free gameplay and I credit the Vanguard (and the G155 before it) for making me a better gamer because I am able to react faster. I have played my vanguard during day/night sessions and have not been affected by glare or an inability to see the screen in any setting, The G155 had what I felt were limited viewing angles (I mainly played by myself on it anyway) but the Vanguard does not seem to suffer from these limited viewing angles. I have played and watched others play my Vanguard and can see from every angle. A feature that Gaems added to help gamers adjust the view of the screen is a kind of kickstand on the lid of the case. The G155 did not have this and I found myself on certain surfaces or locations having to place a game box or something underneath it to prop it up and give me the best viewing angle on it. The kickstand on the vanguard props it up to the perfect height on all the surfaces and locations I had a minor problem with on the G155. It goes to show that Gaems listens to its customers which brings me to something I brought up in my G155 review...Sound
The sound on the G155 was good and could get pretty loud but I felt something was missing. The Vanguard arrived and when I booted it up with the Halo 4 opening cinematic...it blew me away! I felt that the sound was richer and deep. I have slightly adjusted the equalizer to add more of a bass presence. I am extremely happy with the sound quality of the speakers.
The build quality is amazing. I am a big fan of Halo 4 and this case does Halo justice. It is gorgeous to say the least. It instantly grabs the attention of people that see it and they look at it in awe. Once I open it the Vanguard seems to be a magnet and draws people to it and they ask what it is and where they can get one. The case is durable and can survive falls, bumps and my three year old son. (That in itself is pretty good considering he has destroyed an Otter Box but luckily not the device it was protecting) I did like how the G155 handle would kind of disappear into the case when not in use but I do like the solid grip that the Vanguard handle has. The latches are sturdy and lock easily. The strap is comfortable and really helps when I am walking long distances with the Vanguard. Your Xbox 360 or PS3 will not overheat in the Vanguard. It has been designed to breathe well and allow you to game for hours without worry. Trust me I know first hand 
Gaems Customer Service and their devotion to making certain you have an amazing experience with them and their product is exceptional. They are quick to reply and quick to act in making sure their fans are happy. They really take customer service to a whole other level. Thank you Gaems!

This is probly a stupid question but i've always ended up kicking myself in the butt for not asking them when I feel I should. Will this particular PGE work for any game you put in the ps3, or just the Halo games?
