A PS5 pro controller is finally on the way thanks to famous maker Scuf, which should give PlayStation gamers an edge when playing online.
Sony doesn’t have its own version of the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller, but the Scuf Reflex promises to deliver the kinds of competitive features professional gamers have come to expect.
A full reveal of the Scuf Reflex has yet to take place, but the company claims it was “carefully designed from the ground up for instant reaction times to get you the most wins.” The PS5 pro controller will also include “removable paddles” and “bumpers that make your movements smoother than ever”.
As professional games and e-sports continue to gain in popularity, more and more gamers are investing in hardware that can make them as competitive as possible. Having the right controller can work wonders and definitely provide a competitive edge in titles like Call of Duty: Vanguard and Fortnite.

Analysis: a PS5 pro controller is long overdue
Unlike Microsoft, Sony has yet to create an official pro controller for its consoles. Instead, it chose to release the DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment add-on for the PS4, which added two remappable palettes that are often found on competing pads.
Unfortunately, however, the DualShock 4 rear button attachment doesn’t work on the PS5 DualSense controller, and the only other pro-grade pad available right now is the HexGaming Esports Rival 2 controller, which doesn’t come cheap.
We expect the Scuf Reflex to retail at a similar price to the Xbox-specific Scuf Instinct and Scuf Instinct Pro controllers, which cost $ 170 / £ 159.99 and $ 200 / £ 189.99 respectively. .
With online multiplayer games continuing to be among the most played titles, it is honestly surprising that Sony has not created its own version of the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller, which has proven that there is a huge market. available. Scuf hopes to take advantage of that, especially if Sony chooses not to release a pro controller for PS5 this generation.
