The SCUF Vantage costs $ 170- $ 200 and looks to be a response to Microsoft's popular Xbox Elite controller.
Xbox One gamers already have the option of a performance-focused official controller in the form of the Xbox Elite pad. It sells for a premium price, but even so, it's proving very popular with Xbox Owners. Sony on the other hand, is happy to license out new controller designs, which is how we got a pad without a Light Bar and Mini Wired Gamepad for smaller hands.
Now, nearly five years in to the PS4 life cycle, Sony who want more performance out of their input device. The PlayStation.Blog confirmed that PS4 owners will have the SCUF Gaming.
]SCUF is not new to the production of PS4 controllers , having already released the SCUF Impact and Infinity Pro pads. But now we have an officially licensed pad of them called SCUF Vantage, and it certainly changes things up. stick is higher than the right, which is a move away from the traditional positioning. On the sides are mounted two SAX (side action) buttons, there's also adjustable hair triggers with stops and extenders, four removable back paddles, a quick access remapping switch, and customizable thumbs. It's also possible to switch out the D-pad and interchange magnetic face plates.
If you've been frustrated by the lack of customization on the standard DualShock 4 pad, then the SCUF Vantage was clearly made for you. However, it's certainly not cheap. The wired-only model will cost $ 169.95, but if you want to go wireless, the price increases to $ 199.95. As a bonus, SCUF also includes a travel case with the wireless model.
SCUF and Sony plan to launch Vantage in the “late summer 2018”
