SCUF Gaming partners with Porsche, Turn 10 Studios, and Microsoft
Stores ahead of Forza Motorsport 7 launch

SCUF
Gaming
, the innovator and creator of high performance game
controllers, has teamed up with Porsche and Turn 10 Studios to design
the limited edition SCUF FORZA ELITE controller in celebration of the
October release of Forza
Motorsport 7
.

Inspired by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, the cover car for Forza Motorsport
7, the SCUF FORZA ELITE's front design is custom-crafted with an
exclusive silver finish, red and black racing stripes, black carbon
fiber accents, and the Forza logo. The luxurious controller handles are
made of the same hand-stitched Alcantara leather found in the 911
Porsches.

"The SCUF FORZA ELITE features fine attention to detail, hand-built at
our facilities in Atlanta where it is geared and tested for
performance," said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Co-Founder of SCUF Gaming.
"In 2011, we challenged how controllers were built, creating a new
market for high performance controllers by adding features to increase
hand use and improve gameplay. This new limited edition controller
continues that tradition. It's a tribute to fans of Forza, Porsche, and
SCUF. It could not have become a reality without these three premium
brands coming together."

This limited edition controller includes SCUF's signature paddles, hair
triggers, and other key functionality used by over 90% of professional
gamers. The controller features the iconic Porsche Crest in a vivid
color set and high quality metal fabrication SCUF paddles which
transcend the back of the controller for optimal reach and use. Similar
to racing car tires, SCUF ELITE premium thumbsticks offer gamers
superior grip and comfort to achieve optimal driving performance in
Forza Motorsport 7. A range of thumbsticks heights are included and can
be customized to the gamer's preference. Additional features include red
volcano rings, SCUF Pro Grip handles, a custom case, certificate of
authenticity, and replacement controller parts.

"In 2015, we worked with Microsoft to help bring our innovative,
patented products to more gamers and consumers," continued Ironmonger.
"We are excited to continue working with Microsoft ahead of one of the
most anticipated Xbox game launches this year."

As part of SCUF's
licensing deal with Microsoft
to become the exclusive 3rd
party accessories partner for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller and
through the partnership with Porsche, the limited edition SCUF FORZA
