SCUF Gaming, the independent subsidiary of Corsair, should be a familiar name to gaming fans who are looking for particularly high-quality controllers with additional features. With the two input devices SCUF Instinct and Instinct Pro, the company has now introduced new wireless professional controllers that should excite gamers.
SCUF Instinct and Instinct Pro
With the two wireless pro controllers Instinct and Instinct Pro, SCUF Gaming wants to inspire PC and Xbox gamers. Both models are based on the design of the Xbox Series X/S gamepad in terms of shape, but also feature four freely configurable paddles on the back.
For example, the two interchangeable thumbsticks can be placed under the removable front panel. You can choose between inward and outward curved as well as short or long versions. Three individual configurations for different games can be saved with the Profile Switch. Of course, the SCUF Instinct and Instinct Pro controllers have all the standard Xbox Series X/S gamepad buttons like Start, Menu and Share for quick sharing of screenshots and videos.
The Instinct Pro, which is around 30 Euros more expensive, also has unique instant triggers that are activated via a switch on the back. This allows the distance of the triggers to be adjusted and is primarily aimed at gamers who like to play shooters. With the short setting, the pressure feeling is supposed to be close to a quick mouse click. The so-called High-Performance-Grip is also reserved for the Pro model and offers a particularly non-slip back of the controller.
Both controllers can be used wirelessly via Bluetooth or with the two-meter USB-C cable.
Pricing and availability
The SCUF Instinct and Instinct Pro wireless controllers are available now via the SCUF Gaming website. There, the faceplate, color of the buttons and many other components can be customized in countless colors. The SCUF Instinct starts at an MSRP of 179.99 Euros while the SCUF Instinct Pro costs at least 209.99 Euros.
