Scuf Gaming has partnered with Porsche and Turn 10 Studios for the limited edition Forza Elite controller. Available later this month, the controller takes inspiration from Forza 7’s cover car, the 911 GT2 RS.
An Elite Wireless controller at its core, retailing for $149 by itself, Scuf have given it a makeover. The limited edition controller features a silver finish, red and black racing stripes, carbon fiber accents and the Forza logo. Going one further, the grips are clad in Alcantara.
The controller features the peripheral brand’s signature paddles and hair triggers. The Porsche badge sits on top of the controller, making it the perfect complement to the game’s hero car. Also included is a custom case and variety of thumbsticks allowing players to customize the controller’s fit and feel.
This is where things get a little interesting. As you may have already expected, like the brand lending its name, the controller is going to cost you. Scuf’s Forza Elite Controller is available to buy in one of two ways.
The standalone controller will set you back a cool $300 USD with Scuf only making 2,000 units. There’s a second option for those looking for something extra. For $370 players have the option of a bundle including a 2018 GT2 RS scale model with Scuf Gaming and Forza logos. Like the standalone controller, the bundle is also limited but with a lower yield of 500 units. If either piques your interest, you’d better act fast.
The first 50 controllers will be available for sale on October 7 at a special launch event. Where? The Microsoft Store on Fifth Avenue in NYC. Those attending can take part in time trial competitions and be the first to use the controllers. Did we mention Porsche cars will be there as well?
Pre-orders for the peripheral begin the same day with initial shipments beginning late-October. For those interested, head over to the preview page for more information.
