CORSAIR announced that it has agreed to acquire high-performance controller pioneer SCUF Gaming “SCUF” and its patent portfolio.
The transaction is expected to complete within the next 30 days.
Since launching in 2011, SCUF has set a new standard for performance controllers for use with Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. SCUF radically changed the way controllers are used by redesigning the layout of a controller to increase hand use and improve performance, matching the evolving complexities of competitive games.
In comparison to generic game controllers, SCUF controllers are modular by feature and design, built to specification to shorten hand movements and gain a performance advantage, making it easier for players to tailor the controller to their individual preferences. SCUF controllers feature configurable components, including a patented paddle control system, removable back paddles, a quick-access remapping switch, customizable thumbsticks, hair trigger, trigger stops and extenders, choice of D-pads, and an interchangeable magnetic faceplate.
SCUF has a loyal affiliate network and is a licensed partner of Activision for Call of Duty, as well as the official controller partner of many gaming leagues including the NBA 2K League and eMLS.
SCUF Gaming will remain a separate brand within the CORSAIR family and will continue to operate from its HQ in Atlanta, as well as regional offices. All existing SCUF Gaming warranties, purchases, and support are unaffected and will continue to be provided by SCUF Gaming.
