Corsair wasn’t accomplished growing after it purchased Elgato Gaming and Origin PC. The surface maker has procured Scuf, an Atlanta gear known for its highly modular gamepads. The transfer will make Corsair a key player in “performance controllers,” whereas Scuf sees this as an opportunity to develop via its soon-to-be-parents “operational scale.” As with earlier offers, Scuf will nonetheless work as a separate model and maintain its present offices. Do not anticipate a drastic change en route, at the very least, not at first.
The buyout must be completed throughout the next 30 days.
This can be an intelligent transfer. Scuf gamepads are usually costly. However, they’re also incredibly customizable in both functionality and look — there is a good motive why we included the Vantage 2 in our holiday gift guide. The acquisition lets Corsair walk into this house with a skilled and well-known brand, slightly than having to spend years building its popularity from scratch.
It additionally sheds more light on Corsair’s overall strategy. Between Scuf, Elgato, and Origin, the model clearly desires to flee its roots as the company that makes your PC’s keyboard or energy provide. It may not have fairly the all-encompassing lineup of a rival like Razer. However, that seems to be the goal.
