IMG_3393

ATLANTA, GA., October 20, 2017 — Scuf Gaming, the maker of high-performance game controllers used by 90 percent of the world’s professional gamers, has teamed up with gaming influencer and celebrity Alastair “Ali-A” Aiken on a stylish new design, the “Ali-A Game On”. The new Game On controller is inspired by Ali-A’s new graphic novel “Ali-A Adventures: Game On”, which released October 19 in the United Kingdom by Puffin Books and on October 24 in the United States by Random House Books for Young Readers.

“SCUF controllers are my go-to for every single gaming situation because they feel so comfortable in my hands, and everything is totally customizable,” Ali-A said. “It’s just so amazing they made the Ali-A Game On in that “Ali-A” blue, the same color as the hero’s uniform in “Game On”.”

In the book, Ali-A is depicted as a gaming icon who transforms into a superhero when merciless aliens crash the launch party for a hot new video game. The action takes readers from Ali’s transformation into the Liberator all the way to the final boss battle.

As an iconic member of the gaming community in real life, Ali-A has built two YouTube channels with over 13 million subscribers combined. He is also the host of Ali-A’s Superchargers on CBBC, in which kids give their parents’ tired old vehicles a hip new look.

“We’ve worked with Ali-A for about four years, and like SCUF, he’s passionate about video games and the gaming community” said Scuf Gaming CEO Duncan Ironmonger. “Ali-A instantly understood the SCUF layout, and how paddles on the underside of the controller, adjustable triggers, and interchangeable thumbsticks could make anyone a better gamer. Ali-A’s millions of fans will love the look and feel of this fully customizable and high performance controller. Anyone who wants to play like Ali-A will want to get their hands on this controller.”

The Ali-A Game On SCUF is available for PS4, Xbox, and PC at scufgaming.com starting at $169.95 for the SCUF IMPACT (£134.99, 169.95€); $159.95 for the Infinity4PS PRO (£127.99, 159.95€); and $159.95 for the Infinity1 (£127.99, 159.95€).

This new limited edition controller continues that tradition. It’s a tribute to fans of Forza, Porsche, and SCUF. It could not have become a reality without these three premium brands coming together.”

This limited edition controller includes SCUF’s signature paddles, hair triggers, and other key functionality used by over 90% of professional gamers. The controller features the iconic Porsche Crest in a vivid color set and high quality metal fabrication SCUF paddles which transcend the back of the controller for optimal reach and use. Similar to racing car tires, SCUF ELITE premium thumbsticks offer gamers superior grip and comfort to achieve optimal driving performance in Forza Motorsport 7. A range of thumbsticks heights are included and can be customized to the gamer’s preference. Additional features include red volcano rings, SCUF Pro Grip handles, a custom case, certificate of authenticity, and replacement controller parts.

Since its inception, SCUF has been a key part of the Call of Duty (COD) ecosystem, from professional players and teams, to leagues and enthusiasts. By inventing and patenting new technology and functionality (over 30 granted patents), SCUF controllers enable players to utilize more of their hand in a safe and ergonomic way, while potentially increasing performance.

We have consistently seen many CWL players and teams rely on their SCUF controllers in the heat of battle. We’re excited to continue our partnership.”

A SCUF controller is designed to make a significant difference when playing competitively. The paddle control system on the back of the controller allows players to perform advanced moves like jumping, crouching, melee or reloading while keeping their thumbs on the thumbsticks. The trigger control system saves game-changing milliseconds when aiming and shooting.
