SCUF Vantage Custom Controller for PS4

Officially licensed controller introduces new Sax buttons, removable magnetic faceplate, audio touch bar, and removable vibration modules to offer the purest connection between player and game

Atlanta, May 22, 2018 --- Since first arriving on the scene in 2011, Scuf Gaming, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, has radically changed the way controllers are used. Now pushing its vision a step further, Scuf Gaming introduces a controller meticulously designed for superior performance and comfort: the SCUF Vantage for the PlayStation®4 (PS4TM) system. This new officially licensed controller for the PS4 is built from the ground up, incorporating SCUF’s patented technologies and a number of new features that set a new standard for performance controllers.

The SCUF Vantage introduces unique features never before seen on any other controller or prior generations of SCUFs:

  • The addition of unique side-mounted right and left Sax buttons are designed to fit the natural placement of a player’s fingers and provide additional configurability.

  • A removable faceplate makes it easy to change thumbsticks and personalize the controller.

  • For advanced audio control, players can simply swipe an audio touch bar to adjust the volume while keeping their hands on the controller, tamping down cross-chatter during team play, raising the volume to get in the zone, or muting sound entirely to concentrate in high-pressure moments.

  • Players can reduce weight and lessen hand fatigue with removable vibration modules.

“Controllers are the single most important connection between an individual and the game. They should be an extension of the player to maximize their performance,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Founder of Scuf Gaming.

The Vantage’s ergonomic shape complements a suite of configurable components, including the 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. These features are modularly designed to shorten hand movements and gain a measurable performance advantage, making it easier for players to tailor the controller to their individual preferences.

Since day one, SCUF’s mission has been to redefine the category of gaming controllers by increasing hand use and improving reaction times to match the evolving complexities of games. SCUF Vantage offers that perfect experience. It’s ergonomically-designed from the ground up to let gamers unlock their true potential and become the best they can be.

“Over the last 18 months, we’ve worked tirelessly to evolve the features that have made SCUF the preferred controller of the majority of top professional gamers. With Vantage we created a controller that caters to every gamer and suits different hand sizes and gameplay styles,” continued Ironmonger. “We also wanted to address the needs of gamers with disabilities, which led to the inspiration for the configurable Sax buttons, conveniently located close to the bumpers, triggers, and face buttons.”

The SCUF Vantage for PS4 is now available for pre-order in a wired-only (USB) model for $169.95 USD, and a wireless (Bluetooth)/wired (USB) model for $199.95 USD on in the U.S. and Canada. Both models include a suite of interchangeable parts and a high-speed braided micro-USB cable for a truly tailored experience. The wireless/wired model also includes a protection and travel case for your controller.

With amazing feats performed by teams like FAB, Epsilon, GIANTS, Millenium, Supremacy and Splyce, Insomnia 60 held up its reputation as one of the best European gaming events in the world. Only one would walk away as the winner of the CWL Birmingham event, and that honor went to Epsilon, who took a double sweep to take out some incredible competition in Splyce. Congratulations to Epsilon and everyone else who made this another white-knuckle event!

Scuf Gaming was proud to be set up at Insomnia, and even had some examples of the brand new SCUF IMPACT for guests and gaming fans to test and get a feel of. It's always a great pleasure to meet members of TeamSCUF and meet new faces in the crowd! SCUF couldn't be happier with the incredible turnout, and are looking forward to seeing everyone else at Insomnia 61 next year.

E3 2017 was full of hints about the future of gaming. TeamSCUF were glued to the screen whenever more information about Call of Duty: WWII was announced. Sony and Sledgehammer Games gave everyone a chance look at November's most anticipated shooter, and the reactions were very positive. And based on the reactions we saw on Twitter, some of the best pro gamers in the world are just as excited as the general public.

The overall theme was one of anticipation of the gameplay, the multiplayer, and of course: the "boots on the ground".

In the meantime, many pros were just plain excited:

Some players expressed their belief that next year was going to be one to remember:

While others were a little more cautious about all the excitement:

But TeamSCUF's feelings on the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII are perfectly summed up by The King himself:

What do you think about Call of Duty's upcoming release? Are you looking forward to boots on the ground, or will you miss the warm hum of your combat rig? Follow SCUF on Twitter and let us know!

Only one day down, and the action at MLG Atlanta has been nothing short of extraordinary! There have been some incredible plays and some surprising upsets, and at the end of the day, TeamSCUF is proud to count 3-0 records with OpTic Gaming, FaZe Clan, and Luminosity. If we had to choose a favorite moment of the day, it would definitely come down to the nail-biter between FaZe and Team Infused, which came down to a 3-2 win for FaZe after a 6-4 Search and Destroy!

The excitement was felt just as heavily at the TeamSCUF Booth as on the virtual battlefield, with luminaries like Evil Geniuses, Luminosity, and Rise Nation coming to the signing table to autograph merch and shake hands with some of their beloved fans. Friday is over, but it's pretty clear that the entire weekend of MLG Atlanta is going to be one for the books! If you're at the tournament, be sure to visit the SCUF Booth and say hello! Otherwise, make a point to visit SCUF at Twitter and Facebook for a of behind-the-scenes look at the action!

After a weekend at MLG Atlanta, Scuf Gaming HQ was invaded by FaZe Clan, who enjoyed an afternoon of taking a personal tour of the offices with CEO Duncan Ironmonger, talking shop and testing custom controllers.

TeamSCUF was thrilled to welcome ZooMaa, Clayster, Enable, and Attach to our headquarters and show these pro players a first hand look at the handcrafted magic behind the SCUF controllers that they play and win with!

The CoD: WWII Campaign Trailer is here and it is intense.

Released today, Activision and Sledgehammer have put together some of the best-looking (and most nail-biting) moments we’ve seen in a Call of Duty game to date. And with fans clamoring for a more gritty, realistic, and boots on the ground game, it’s clear that they’re getting what they’ve been looking for.

The official Call of Duty YouTube channel introduced us to our new protagonist and single-player game experience with this:

Call of Duty®: WWII tells the story of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, a young recruit in the U.S. First Infantry Division who experiences combat for the first time on D-Day, one of the largest amphibious assaults in history. After surviving the beaches of Normandy, Red and his squad will fight their way across Europe, engaging the enemy in iconic battle locations such as the Hürtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge, as they make their way into Germany. The journey begins on November 3.”

CoD’s single-player campaigns have always had great writing and huge, show stopping moments, but this one looks to be their best one yet.
MLG Anaheim 2016 has come and gone, and the final Championship Sunday did not disappoint! #TeamSCUF was ecstatic to be there, meeting so many fans and gaming enthusiasts there for an exciting last day of Call Of Duty.

What what a last day it was:

A blistering second round saw OpTic Gaming defeat Rise Nation 3-0, advancing to face eLevate, who took a close 3-2 victory against Infused. And while eLevate put up an admirable fight, the heavily favored OpTic came out on top with a 3-2 Championship Match win, adding another tally to an already impressive series of accolades!

#TeamSCUF had an amazing time in Anaheim this weekend, and we hope that everyone else did too, whether you were there or watching from home. Congratulations to OpTic and every one of the amazing teams we got to see compete! Be sure to follow us @ScufGaming on Twitter for details on future events that we'll be attending this year!
