May 10th 2014 – Global market leader of Professional Gaming Controllers, Scuf Gaming, launches a French Website to further demonstrate their commitment to the eSports community in France. Since creating a market segment for Professional Controllers, through the invention of back paddles and adjustable hair trigger/ trigger stop functionality in 2010, SCUF remains the dominant Professional Controller Company. An estimated 85% of Top gamers use SCUF for shooters and their dominant position is down to the quality of build and innovative features.
Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder Scuf Gaming; “The French eSports community is one of the top gaming communities in the World and one we have supported through sponsored players, organizations and events for a number of years. Last year we made a commitment to further invest in the local community by opening a French twitter account @ScufFrance It only seemed right that we have a local presence given we invented the SCUF paddles, trigger functions and other key features that enable gamers to use more of their hand in a safe and ergonomic way.
