Microsoft add new Hardware Partners in Pro Gamer Favorites Scuf.

At the announcement of the ‘Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller’ the internet was rife with rumors of a partnership between Microsoft and Scuf Gaming. For those who don’t know Scuf Gaming are THE people to go to if you want the best controllers both aesthetically and practically, basically they’re for the rich and the pros.

However that’s about to change as of today Scuf and Microsoft are indeed working together allowing Microsoft to tap into every resource Scuf has to offer. Phil Spencer and Scuf’s Duncan Ironmonger (are you kidding me with that name that’s freakin’ awesome) spoke about the partnership.

“SCUF continues to improve the way gamers use a controller, reducing hand strain and enhancing the gameplay experience,” said Spencer, “We are pleased to work with SCUF to bring this project to the masses.”

“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.” – Ironmonger
While I know many people will be excited to have a new level of dexterity and features on the controller they might be put off by the $150 price tag and you can pick the up on October 27th, isn’t that the same day a long running space based FPS comes out?
