Xi3 Corporation today announced that it is co-developing with Scuf Gaming new designs and options for gaming controllers optimized for Xi3’s PISTON™ Console. Scuf Gaming is one of the leading independent manufacturers of gaming controllers. Its SCUF Hybrid controllers have become the default controllers for Pro and Elite Gamers in First-Person Shooter and Sports Games and are one of the only controllers certified for use in the majority of the world’s competitive gaming leagues, including MLG, EGL, ESL, Reflex, WGL, and Gfinity.
“We’re experts in building the world’s smallest and most powerful gaming systems, and when it came time to develop controllers customized for PISTON, there was never any question about where we should look,” said Jason A. Sullivan, Founder, President and CEO of Xi3 Corporation. “In their short history, Scuf Gaming has developed a very well-deserved reputation as one of the elite controller designers/manufacturers on the planet, and we’re very pleased to be working with them.”
“Innovative design coupled with customizability—these are two of the core principles applied at Scuf Gaming, qualities that are also very apparent with Xi3 and its PISTON Console,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Co-founder of Scuf Gaming. “The PISTON Console has built incredible excitement in a very short time frame, and we’re very excited to team with Xi3 on this co-development effort.”
Additional details about the relationship between the two parties and/or Xi3’s controller plans were not released at this time but the gaming horizons are looking bright anyway.
