Microsoft now has the rights to use SCUFs intellectual property, patents as well as innovations. Under the terms of the agreement, Scuf Gaming will also become the exclusive 3rd party accessories partner for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller.
Scuf Gaming became popular when pro gamers raved about the paddle design on their controllers. Scuf controllers are known to shorten your response time when in-game and with Scuf trigger players experience reduced latency and a faster response time as well. The company offers players to customize their own controllers with color choices, thumbstick options, and grip variations.
Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder of Scuf Gaming & Ironburg Inventions, stated,
“Since creating a new market space for customizable professional gaming controllers 5 years ago, our vision has always been to see the mass market benefit from the innovative features and functions we patented. Over 90% of top professional gamers have recognized the competitive edge SCUF provides so we are delighted that Microsoft will now bring that edge to the wider market with its Xbox Elite Wireless Controller.”
“SCUF continues to improve the way gamers use a controller, reducing hand strain and enhancing the gameplay experience,” said Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox. “We are pleased to work with SCUF to bring this project to the masses.”
