Scuf Gaming - the top pro and custom controller maker for eSports - has released two new professional line controllers for the PlayStation 4 and PC: the SCUF IMPACT and SCUF Infinity 4PS PRO. Each incorporates SCUF’s patented removable/interchangeable paddles (which require no screws) and optional USB wired connectivity (bluetooth supported otherwise) and offers multiple thumbstick and color options.
The SCUF Infinity 4PS PRO is the newest entry to the popular Infinity series and adds easily removable paddles and the Impact is something entirely new and took 15 months to develop and craft. The Impact controller offers a new body shape to cater towards more player hand preferences and while it includes the same feature set as the Infinity Series, it also supports four paddles thanks to its shape along with improved cable housing to protect the USB connection.
