If gaming is your chosen hobby, you may want a controller that's better than the standard gamepad that ships with your system. Yes, a standard gamepad will get the job done, but you can do better. Whether you want a customised look/feel for your gamepad, extra buttons or instant triggers, there are ways that custom gamepads can improve your gaming experience. 

For Xbox Series X/S, SCUF Gaming has revealed their first "Wireless Performance" controllers with their Instinct and Instinct Pro, both of which includes SCUF's paddle control system, a refined ergonomic shape and customisation options that include interchangeable faceplates, thumbsticks, and D-pads.

Both the Instinct and Instinct Pro feature four embedded back control paddles, and the Instinct Pro features adjustable "Instant Triggers" that will allow gamers to choose between regular and instant-action triggers with a  simple flick of a switch. This option can make trigger pulls faster, which is ideal for competitive shooters. The Instinct Pro controller also includes a "High-Performance Grip". 

SCUF Gaming's Instinct and Instinct Pro gamepads support Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, and mobile devices. With pricing starting at $169.99 and $199.99 for the Instinct and Instinct Pro, these controllers aren't cheap, but that's what should be expected from a highly customisable high-performance gamepad. 

What follows is SCUF Gaming's Press Release for their new Instinct and Instinct Pro controllers.

SCUF Gaming Launches the First Wireless Performance Controller Designed for Xbox Series X|S

SCUF Gaming, a leader in the design and manufacturing of high-performance gaming controllers, today introduces the Designed for Xbox SCUF Instinct and Instinct Pro, created specifically for the Xbox Series X|S.

SCUF Instinct incorporates all of the innovative features gamers expect from SCUF - including the patented paddle control system that helped make SCUF controllers the premier choice of competitive players everywhere - with an evolved controller design to improve performance for Xbox fans. Both Instinct and Instinct Pro include four embedded back control paddles, which can be programmed to replicate the ABXY buttons. Their refined ergonomic shape enables better control for a wide variety of hand sizes, with millions of customization options to suit all gamers including interchangeable faceplates, thumbsticks, and D-pads.

SCUF Instinct Pro additionally offers new adjustable Instant Triggers, giving gamers the ability to choose between regular or instant-action at the flick of a switch. Instant Triggers eliminate the trigger pull, activating immediately with a one-tap motion, similar to a mouse click - ideal for fast-paced shooters. You can always switch back to regular triggers and be ready to play your favorite racing game. Instinct Pro also includes High-Performance Grip.

     With SCUF Instinct, gamers have a new advantage when playing on Xbox Series X|S. We've refined the way we deliver SCUF performance controllers, with a new form-factor that will appeal to an even wider range of gamers and hand sizes. Four Embedded Back Paddles, Instant Triggers, and a new thumbstick design combine to make our most reactive controller to date," said Diego Nunez, SCUF Gaming Chief Marketing Officer. "Xbox fans are at the core of SCUF's history, and we're proud to have created a controller that both pays homage to that legacy and equips gamers for exciting new games on the newest console generation.

Today's gamers shouldn't stick with one game, franchise, or genre, which is why Instinct introduces onboard, remappable profiles that can be toggled through at the press of a button, a SCUF first. Paddle profiles make it easy to fine-tune controller settings and save them for later for different games. No pause in gameplay, remapping tool, or app required.

Instinct controllers can also be customized with millions of design combinations on the SCUF Gaming website. Pick from a wide variety of faceplates, thumbstick variations, and trim colors to match any setup or personal style. Every detail and feature of Instinct has been meticulously crafted and engineered for an unbeatable gaming experience configurable to any playstyle.

A full list of SCUF Instinct and Instinct Pro features includes:

- Profile Switch allows you to save three remapping configurations for different games
- Wireless connectivity to play comfortably from a distance, now with improved dynamic latency input
- An optional wired connection for lower latency play from your couch with 2 m USB Type-C cable

I still think Microsofts Elite Series 2 controller is 1 of the best controllers I've ever personally used, Although I do not own one, Now if it had Sony's haptic/variable resistance triggers this would be a game changer.Quote
