Evil Geniuses Partners with Scuf Gaming

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — June 3, 2016 — Evil Geniuses (EG), a world-leading pro gaming team and new media agency, is pleased to announce its partnership with Scuf Gaming (SCUF), the inventors of paddles, hair triggers and global leader of professional customized gaming controllers.

“SCUF has been incredible to work with for as long as I can remember, you can tell they really care about their product and want to create the best gaming experience,” says Eric “Snip3down” Wrona. My old controller settings didn’t allow me to jump or even sprint without taking my right thumb off the joystick, causing me to lose aim for a short time. With the added functionality on a SCUF controller, I was able to keep my controller settings the same and use the paddles to remove that issue, giving me more control and a better shot. I am very excited to have SCUF as the official partner of Evil Geniuses.”

In a game where reaction time is essential to a team’s success, having the right equipment is paramount. SCUF controllers offer increased functionality needed to play video games like Halo at the highest level so EG is delighted to be working with SCUF. To celebrate this announcement, Scuf Gaming is offering a five (5) percent discount code off all products on their website, which can be redeemed by entering the code “EG” at checkout on http://www.scufgaming.com

Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Founder Scuf Gaming, “EG are a huge contributor to the tremendous growth and success of eSports and with their commitment to competitive Gaming, it seemed a perfect time to concrete our partnership as the Controller Partner for Console and PC. We are delighted to add them to #TeamSCUF.

In the near future, SCUF will be releasing a custom EG controller for Xbox One & PC. Be sure to follow EG (Facebook, Twitter) and Scuf Gaming (Facebook, Twitter) for the latest updates.

Scuf Gaming Launches the Highly Anticipated SCUF Infinity 4PS

PRESS RELEASE: May 5, 2016 – Launching the Infinity4PS Controller, Scuf Gaming continues to change the game for PlayStation and PC gamers. Leveraging IP and functionality from the highly acclaimed Infinity Series, SCUF helps to take your game to the next level with the fully modular SCUF Infinity4PS, swap out thumbsticks, triggers and paddles on the fly to optimize the feel and functionality to suit your gameplay.

The SCUF Infinity4PS includes many new innovations including: (1) SCUF’s patented trigger control area, which offers various length triggers and quick shift trigger stops. Gamers can shift the trigger stops to initiate various activation points on the trigger and also mechanically tune the tension and position of the trigger to locate the triggers’ ‘sweet spot’ with the adjustable hair trigger mechanisms. Both functions provide the gamer with reduced trigger latency and improved trigger control. (2) Fully remappable paddles increase hand use and gain a competitive advantage. (3) The Infinity Thumbstick Control Area provides the gamer with the ability to change SCUF’s new proprietary thumbsticks quickly and securely in seconds. Like race car tires, thumbsticks will wear down, especially when they have optimal comfort and grip. This is an option SCUF fans have been eagerly awaiting. (4) The SCUF Infinity4PS now offers the choice of military grade SCUF GRIP, which is the Pro’s grip choice on the SCUF Infinity1.

A wide array of design and color options are available on the SCUF Infinity4PS to suit all tastes and budgets, including branded eSports team SCUF controllers like OpTic and FaZe. SCUF controllers are hand crafted to the gamer’s specification, which is why over 90% of professional gamers choose SCUF controllers. The SCUF Infinity4PS is compatible for use on PlayStation®4 and PC.

“Over the past 12 months, we have witnessed the PlayStation market become far more competitive and serious about eSports. Five years ago we invented SCUF features to offer the pro and hardcore community a more competitive controller to match their skill and hand dexterity. Our commitment and innovation are to the gamer, so creating a more modular controller for PlayStation 4 was a natural evolution. We believe offering gamers the flexibility to replace parts, as they wear through extended gameplay, is essential. The release of the Infinity4PS offers trigger function that we are particularly proud of and comes at a perfect time, since we just announced another two utility patents for our adjustable hair trigger and trigger stop functionality. Since 2011, SCUF users have been very familiar with our trigger control area and we’re pleased to evolve this and carry functionality to the SCUF Infinity4PS,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Founder of Scuf Gaming.

SCUF GRANTED YET ANOTHER GAME CHANGING UTILITY PATENT

PRESS RELEASE: April 8, 2016 – Scuf Gaming through Ironburg Inventions (the “Invention/ Patent subsidiary”) has been issued yet another very important Gaming Controller Utility Patent, U.S. Patent No. 9,289,688 by the USPTO, which relates to enabling the user to employ the middle and little fingers of the hand to control Triangular Cross-sectional functions of the reverse of a controller. Included in the patent are conduits for lateral support of elongated back functions (eg paddles or flippers) and also a locking mechanism and switch mechanism to the rear panel.

Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder Scuf Gaming/ Ironburg Inventions says, “Over the last 5 years we have created a new market space for Pro & Hardcore Gaming controllers adding 5 unique functions to previous generations of controllers. We have invested over 10 million dollars into research and development and educating the Gaming World on safe ergonomic use of input devices at the top level. Of the 5 unique features we offer, the back functionality is the most important because it unlocks the previously redundant underside of the controller enabling increased hand-use. We have previously been granted 17 patents so obtaining another key utility patent is gratifying and symbolic of our ongoing innovation. Our mission is to continually advance the way gamers use input devices and rethink normal. By evolving and improving the gamer’s dexterity and experience, we are committed to the growth and enjoyment of eSports. Protecting what we create is essential to our continued growth and ability to innovate and further invest.”

Scuf Gaming (through Ironburg) has filed over 59 patents of which 18 have already been granted. Last year, Scuf Gaming licensed their Intellectual Property to Microsoft for use on the Microsoft Xbox Elite Controller. Scuf Gaming invented and filed patents for several key features on a professional customizable controller to include back control functions, paddles, adjustable hair trigger and trigger stop mechanisms, EMR (Electro-magnetic Remapping), removable thumbsticks, Dpad and Infinity rings, ergonomic SCUF Grip handles and much more.

Ironmonger concludes, “In the early days we had to spend time convincing gamers that SCUF controllers made sense, most recently over 90% of Professional Gamers rely on SCUF in competition. We employ over 180 people in USA and Europe so the ability to protect our investment through issued patents is both gratifying and comforting, especially given the market shift to SCUF like controllers as people catch on.”
