We all love our video games, but what if you could love your video games while also helping out a worthwhile charity? SCUF Gaming is helping you do just that this weekend at GuardianCon. SCUF will be partnering with Twitch streaming stars Gothalion and ProfessorBroman at GuardianCon to help raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. SCUF will donate $15 for every controller purchased at GuardianCon. If you’re not at GuardianCon, you can get 5% off of your purchase on scufgaming.com using code “STJUDE” at checkout today and tomorrow — GuardianCon takes place on June 30th and July 1st.
SCUF has also announced a pair of custom controllers for Gothalion and ProfessorBroman, each with its own signature style available on the SCUF IMPACT for PlayStation 4 and PC (starting at $169.95, € $169.95, £134.99) or the SCUF Infinity1 for Xbox One and PC (starting at $159.95, €159.95, £129.99). Both designs look pretty great, and if you’re a fan of either streamer, you can play with the controllers they use. We’ve had a chance to review both the SCUF Infinity1 and SCUF ELITE controllers and came away quite impressed. Our review for the SCUF IMPACT for PS4 will be published in the future, but as a sneak peek, it’s also pretty amazing. You can read more about SCUF’s partnership with Gothalion and ProfessorBroman as well as their involvement with GuardianCon and St. Jude in the full press release below.
