As many hardcore Xbox fans are still waiting for Microsoft to release an update for its Xbox Elite Controller, Scuf Gaming is coming up with an interesting alternative with its new Prestige Controller (via Engadget). The $159.99 accessory comes with a premium design with rubberized grips, exchangeable faceplates, and an integrated battery providing 30 hours of battery life.

Just like Microsoft’s Xbox Elite controller, the Scuf Gaming Controller can be customized with
4 paddles that can be mapped to 14 controller functions. Moreover, it comes with adjustable hair triggers, quick shift trigger stops, and 2 additional thumbsticks to accommodate to different hand sizes.

The Scuf Prestige Controller weighs 267 grams (216 without rumbles), making it the lightest premium Xbox controller on the market according to the company. Last but not least, it also supports Bluetooth, something that Microsoft’s Xbox Elite Controller still lacks.

If you’re interested, the Scuf Prestige Controller is already up to pre-order on the company’s website, and it should ship within 30 days.
