Scuf Gaming Launches a Range of Accessories & Customisation Options for the Xbox Elite Controller

Scuf Gaming (SCUF) has announced a new range of accessories for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller and the launch of the SCUF ELITE customisation program as part of their partnership with Microsoft.

Six years ago, SCUF created a new market space for professional customised controllers, challenging the ‘status-quo’ of how controllers were designed and used. Inventing many features that improve performance including paddles and adjustable hair trigger/stop mechanisms, SCUF has 25 granted patents and another 55 pending.

SCUF is used by over 90% of professional gamers, in October 2015, SCUF announced that it signed a licensing deal with Microsoft Corporation providing Microsoft the rights to use SCUF’s intellectual property, patents and innovations. Under the terms of the agreement, Scuf Gaming became the exclusive 3rd party accessories partner for professional gaming.

Recognising the competitive edge that SCUF patented features provide, Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder of Scuf Gaming stated, “since inception, our vision has always been to cater to the top 10% of the market, but also see the mass market benefit from the innovative features and functions we patented. Over 90% of top professional gamers use SCUF so, our handcrafted SCUF Infinity Series are always built with weight, performance, precision and design in mind. Not everyone is aware we exist so, now we are able to offer the wider market an alternative through our partnership with Microsoft to further increase awareness with the launch of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller and our SCUF ELITE accessories.”

Now gamers can experience SCUF familiarity and innovation to further boost their Xbox Elite Wireless Controller gaming experience. SCUF is offering their crossover paddle control system and directional bias D-pad positioned for optimal ergonomic performance, military grade grip handles contoured to fit your hand and an increased range of precision thumbsticks.

The SCUF ELITE customisation program also offers a full range of unique designs and colour treatments, including faceplate, buttons, trim and SCUF accessories.
