Microsoft & Scuf Gaming Have Become Hardware Partners

Just announced recently, Scuf has licensed its technology to Microsoft while also becoming a third party accessories partner for Xbox controllers....

    Gaming nowadays has become as competitive and advanced as we have ever seen it, completely surpassing any form of video game competition that was experienced in the past. Therefore, it has created a huge market for gamers that want to gain any kind of extra edge to defeat their opponents. If you’re looking for a custom controller, Scuf has become the leader amongst hardcore gamers. Even though their prices are relatively high, it hasn’t damaged the top of the line reputation the company holds for quality and precision.

    The only product that had begun to somewhat compete was the new Xbox One Elite controller, and even then it was assumed by many that Scuf somehow had their hands in on Microsoft's latest project. It seems this may have been true, as the two companies are not attempting an arms race over which can be more successful or consistent. Just announced recently, Scuf has licensed its technology to Microsoft while also becoming a third party accessories partner for Xbox controllers. In other words, what this means is that Microsoft now has the rights to use Scuf’s intellectual property, patents, and controller innovations. But, this also gives Scuf the ability to incorporate their ideas and accessory improvements into Xbox controllers. This agreement will therefore wipe out any form of competition between the two companies, allowing them to collectively enhance the future of gaming controllers.

    With this partnership under way, it’s unsure if PlayStation consoles will continue to receive new Scuf accessories, or if the company will be strictly working alongside Microsoft. No official announcement on this matter has been released just yet. I’ll update this article if Scuf makes some sort of disclosure about the subject.

    Im not Completly Sure if the XBOX360 or XBOX ONE controllers are the most sold on the website are they?
    Because they cost a LOT of money.

    It's no secret that Scuf has always preferred Xbox. Can't say I'm disappointed though, I reckon PS will match the Elite controller at some point. It always happens on both sides of the spectrum.

    And this is how Microsoft takes back the Call of Duty Competitive side folks.

      You're right, they have to be on the same scale. Xbox and PS are gaming systems, and we are talking about the same gaming franchise, ie. (Call of Duty). Where does it not fit the same scale? If you claim that everything must be quantifiable, then I still prove my point. In this case, my time played on each system, K/D per game, map, gun, what have you, all count for something. Obviously I am not playing the same people across system, but averages can be made, therefore I can make the claims.

      You can make claims but without any proof, it's just conjecture. You are literally making this statistic up, you have not calculated using any maths to see which is more "competitive."
