Peripheral manufacturer SCUF is well-known for making some truly great gaming controllers. Now, the company has announced the SCUF Vantage PlayStation 4 controller for those competitive players looking for an edge.
The SCUF Vantage PlayStation 4 controller is officially licenced by Sony and features all the adjustable triggers, extenders and grips your competitive gaming heart could desire. The Controller incorporates a host of new features to allow players to configure the controller to their personal playstyle.
- Side-mounted right and left ‘Sax’ buttons – designed to fit the natural placement of a player’s fingers and provide additional configurability
- Removable faceplate/ Interchangeable magnetic faceplate – makes it easy to change thumbsticks & personalize the controller
- Advanced audio control for wired connection – a simple swipe of the audio touch bar adjusts the volume while players can keep their hands on the controller
- Removable vibration modules – players can reduce the weight of the controller and lessen hand fatigue
- Paddle control system with four removable back paddles
- A quick-access remapping switch
- Customizable thumbsticks with 3 different heights in either a concave or convex configuration
- Adjustable Hair triggers
- Trigger stops and extenders
- Choice of D-pads
The controller is set for release later this year and can be pre-ordered on SCUF Gaming’s website. The price of these controllers is $169.95 and $199.95, depending on whether you want to buy the wired or wireless version.
It is all quite impressive. However, it does beg the question, “Why hasn’t Sony developed their own official customisable PlayStation 4 controller?” Microsoft has been lauded for their Xbox Elite controller, which SCUF helped to develop by licensing some of their technology to Microsoft. With the amount of third-party Elite-style controllers on the market for the PlayStation 4, such as the Razer Raiju, isn’t it about time that Sony developed their own?
