Scuf Gaming is one of the iconic custom controller companies around, so it makes very good business sense for Xbox to bring SCUF on board with their very popular Elite controller. SCUF has been officially announced as the exclusive third-party accessory partner for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. The company will begin releasing accessories for the pro-gaming controller before the end of 2016 with the first being a range of different colored replaceable grips, thumbsticks, and paddle control systems.
“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,” Scuf Gaming & Ironburg Inventions co-founder, Duncan Ironmonger, said of the agreement. “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.”
Xbox’s Phil Spencer was also excited by the partnership and said, “SCUF continues to improve the way gamers use a controller, reducing hand strain and enhancing the gameplay experience. We are pleased to work with SCUF to bring this project to the masses.”
