SCUF Gaming has announced two new performance controllers for Microsoft’s Xbox Series X|S. The Instinct and Instinct Pro controllers have familiar features SCUF is known for, such as customizable faceplates, a programmable back paddle control system, and onboard remappable profiles for customization without the use of an app. The Instinct Pro has adjustable triggers that can be toggled with a switch. Pricing starts at $169.99 for the Instinct, and $199.99 for the Instinct Pro. The premium controller maker was acquired by Corsair in December 2019.

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.

SCUF Instinct Pro additionally offers new adjustable Instant Triggers, giving gamers the ability to choose between regular or instant-action at the flick of a switch. Instant Triggers eliminate the trigger pull, activating immediately with a one-tap motion, similar to a mouse click – ideal for fast-paced shooters.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
