I may get it just for the offset sticks.

For sure is a great alternative to the PS4 controller assuming he build quality is there. 200 bucks is steep though. 50 more than the already high 150 for the Elite.

That's a pretty typical SCUF price. I remember when they announced the Elite, some people lost their s*** over the price, but most didn't realize how expensive those kinds of controllers are.

I can't see myself paying $200 for a controller. I'll stick with the free one, thanks (free with the system, I mean).

Nice. DS4 is the best controller of all time but glad to see another check mark nullified.

Why do these controllers cost so much? $200 for a controller is just stupid.

Wireless is $200, wired is $159? forget it! the standard DS4 is just fine IMO.

I'm getting this but only because my addiction to Fortnite is shutting off the decision centers of my brain. This will be something I regret doing in five years.

In a lot of games I don't think it would be an advantage. But with a game like Fortnite I could easily see the benefits of programmable paddles.

After being set on this I thought long and hard about it and ultimately decided to opt for a different pad, I decided on the Nacon Revolution Pro V2:

My buddy says aiming with the sticks is off compared to the DS4 with the Nacon.

After researching more i might have to get the Vantage with the price being the only factor....

How're they off? I'm more intrigued than anything as it seems spot on for me.

https://gizmodo.com/the-ps4-finally-has-a-super-customizable-controller-an-1829390618


If you’re a PC gamer looking for something different this is it, and if you’re a PlayStation owner who has been envious of the controller options available to your friends on the Xbox and the PC, then the time has finally come—you’ve got a controller that isn’t just as good—it’s actually better.

README
  • The Scuf Vantage is expensive! The Infinity4PS starts at $138, while a Microsoft Elite controller starts at $150. The Vantage starts at $170 for wired and $200 for wireless.
  • But seriously, it’s so customizable that might not matter for you.
  • The layout is slightly different though. So expect a little learning curve.
  • Included in the box: Controller, very nice USB cable, case, 2 x short concave thumbsticks, 2 x medium dome thumbsticks, 1 x control disc, 1 x D-Pad, 2 x short trigger covers, 2 x long trigger covers, 4 x friction rings for thumbsticks, 2 x removable rumble packs, 1 x rumble pack case (also useful for all the other stuff!), 1 x wrench for adjust triggers.

Controller is getting hammered in reviews.

It sounds like most, if not all of the issues will be fixed with a software patch in a few weeks, but right now early adopters are not pleased.

Been holding off especially with PS5 so close...
I will gladly reconsider at a much lower price or take one as a gift from a union breatheran or sister :)

Wait, you called yourself a serious Fortnite player but play on PS4 not on PC?
