Scuf Gaming Unveils New 'High-Performance' Controllers For Xbox Series X|S

SCUF Gaming is the latest company to have announced new Xbox controllers specifically for the Series X and Series S today (although they work with Xbox One as well), and unlike many other third-party controllers, they're wireless too.

The Xbox SCUF Instinct and Instinct Pro include features such as removable faceplates, profile switching, self-lubricating rings for the thumbsticks, the ability to mute your headset from your controller and more.

"SCUF Instinct incorporates all of the innovative features gamers expect from SCUF – including the patented paddle control system that helped make SCUF controllers the premier choice of competitive players everywhere – with an evolved controller design to improve performance for Xbox fans.

Both Instinct and Instinct Pro include four embedded back control paddles, which can be programmed to replicate the ABXY buttons. Their refined ergonomic shape enables better control for a wide variety of hand sizes, with millions of customization options to suit all gamers including interchangeable faceplates, thumbsticks, and D-pads."

The difference with the Instinct Pro compared to the standard Instinct is that you also get adjustable Instant Triggers, eliminating the trigger pull and activating immediately with a one-tap motion (similar to a mouse click), and it also comes with High-Performance Grip "with a comfortable, non-slip feel for extended gaming sessions".

The two controllers can also be customised with "millions of design combinations", packed with a wide variety of faceplates, thumbstick variations and trim colors to choose from. You can truly make it your own!

Be aware the two controllers aren't cheap though, as the SCUF Instinct starts at $169.99 and the Instinct Pro starts at $199.99. As of now, they are only available to purchase exclusively on the SCUF Gaming website.

“With SCUF Instinct, gamers have a new advantage when playing on Xbox Series X|S. We’ve refined the way we deliver SCUF performance controllers, with a new form-factor that will appeal to an even wider range of gamers and hand sizes. Four Embedded Back Paddles, Instant Triggers, and a new thumbstick design combine to make our most reactive controller to date."
