Corsair is dipping its hands into the console controller business. The PC peripheral giant has purchased SCUF Gaming, a primary go-to for PlayStation and Xbox gamers who seek high-quality, modular gamepads with back paddles and various customization options (e.g., swappable thumbsticks, hair triggers). SCUF will “remain a separate brand,” but maybe it’ll begin making controllers designed specifically for the PC.
“We are thrilled to greatly expand our portfolio of industry-leading peripherals and enter the gaming controller space to help gamers play at their best,” said Andy Paul, Founder and CEO of CORSAIR. “SCUF leads the market for performance controllers and are a key ingredient to the success of countless esports professionals. SCUF will make an excellent and winning addition to the vast lineup of award-winning CORSAIR and Elgato products.”
