SCUF Gaming is undoubtedly one of the leaders when it comes to third-party console controllers. The company has just announced that the recently redesigned SCUF Vantage for PlayStation 4 is now available in Cosmic Collection colors.
While the SCUF Vantage has been available for some time now, SCUF Gaming worked hard to redesign it from the ground up.
“Over the last 18 months, we’ve worked tirelessly to evolve the features that have made SCUF the preferred controller of the majority of top professional gamers. With Vantage we created a controller that caters to every gamer and suits different hand sizes and gameplay styles. We also wanted to address the needs of gamers with disabilities, which led to the inspiration for the configurable Sax buttons, conveniently located close to the bumpers, triggers, and face buttons.”Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Founder of Scuf Gaming
As Ironmonger mentioned, the SCUF Vantage controller features new side-mounted buttons. In addition, other features like the paddle control system, removable back paddles, trigger stops, choice of D-pads, and quick-access remapping switch also made their way into the redesign.
The interchangeable magnetic faceplate not only makes it easier to personalize the controller but also to change the thumbsticks. The audio touch bar allows gamers to easily adjust volume while in game.
The SCUF Vantage has unique features never before seen on any other controller or prior generations of SCUFs:
- The addition of unique side-mounted right and left Sax buttons are designed to fit the natural placement of a player’s fingers and provide additional configurability.
- A removable faceplate makes it easy to change thumbsticks and personalize the controller.
- For advanced audio control, players can simply swipe an audio touch bar to adjust the volume while keeping their hands on the controller, tamping down cross-chatter during team play, raising the volume to get in the zone, or muting sound entirely to concentrate in high-pressure moments.
- Players can reduce weight and lessen hand fatigue with removable vibration
The SCUF Vantage for PS4 is available in a wired-only (USB) model for US$169.95 and a wireless (Bluetooth)/wired (USB) model for $199.95 in the U.S. and Canada. Alongside the new Cosmic Collection color schemes, the controller is also available in standard colour variations.
