We have covered a couple of different Scuf brand controllers in the past to positive results, so their latest announcement is certainly an interesting one for us.
Launching the Infinity 4PS Controller, Scuf Gaming continue to change the game for PlayStation and PC gamers. Leveraging IP and functionality from the highly acclaimed Infinity Series, SCUF help take your game to the next level with the fully modular SCUF Infinity 4PS. Swap out thumbsticks, triggers and paddles on the fly to optimize the feel and functionality to suit your gameplay.
The SCUF Infinity 4PS 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 stop to initiate various activation points on the trigger and then, mechanically tune the tension and position of the trigger to locate the triggers’ ‘sweet spot’ with the adjustable hair trigger mechanisms. All provide the gamer with reduced trigger latency and improved trigger control. (2) Fully remappable paddles to 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 racecar tires, thumbsticks will wear down, especially if they have optimal comfort and grip. This is an option SCUF fans have been eagerly awaiting. (4) Also, the SCUF Infinity 4PS 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 Infinity 4PS 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 explains why over 90% of professional gamers choose SCUF controllers. The SCUF Infinity 4PS 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 Infinity 4PS 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 Infinity 4PS,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Founder of Scuf Gaming.
