Scuf has launched its new Xbox One and PC Prestige game pad designed to take on Microsoft’s own customizable Elite controller. Not only can the buttons be remapped, the device also includes mappable paddles and other customizable options to give players a distinct edge over the competition.

Scuf Gaming has a well-established reputation for making high-quality PS4, Xbox and PC gaming accessories. It’s latest Xbox One and PC controller dubbed the Prestige is no exception and has been designed to take on Microsoft’s own customizable Xbox Elite controller. As with the Xbox Elite controller, the Scuff Prestige has a range of customizable options designed to give gamers a distinct edge over the competition.

The Scuff prestige looks very much like Microsoft’s Elite controller on the surface, but there are some notable differences. It builds in four mappable paddles underneath the controller that are also removable if you prefer to play without them. These can be mapped to 14 different controller functions including A, B, X, Y, Left Stick, Right Stick, Entire D-pad, Menu, View, Left Bumper and Right Bumper, making it extremely flexible. It is also fitted with quick shift trigger stops, great for FPS games, that can also be further trimmed to suit with the Scuf micro adjustment key.

As you’d expect from Scuf, the Prestige can be further customized with custom faceplates that come in a range of colors and as well as interchangeable precision thumbsticks that come in short, medium or long sizes. As an added bonus, the Scuf Prestige is fitted with a decently sized lithium ion rechargeable battery good for 30 hours of gaming on a charge. Although it connects over Bluetooth, it also ships with a 10-foot braided microUSB cable for wired gameplay and charging.

The Scuf Prestige Xbox One and PC controller is up for pre-order from the equivalent of approximately US$180.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
