Last year, Scuf introduced its Vantage customizable PS4 controller. It offered PlayStation fans a more comfortable grip and the ability to increase speed by cutting down on hand movements. Now, Scuf is ready to unveil a controller for Xbox One, the Prestige. The gamepad builds on Scuf's previous customizable features and adds perks like a longer battery life -- thanks to a lithium-ion battery that boasts up to 30 hours on a full charge.

The Prestige offers interchangeable faceplates and a rubberized grip for "unprecedented non-slip comfort." At just 262 grams, it's also one of the lightest high-performance controllers. Like other Scuf controllers, it comes with replaceable ergonomic back paddles, mappable controls and interchangeable thumbsticks. The Prestige also allows mechanical hair trigger fine-tuning and a redesigned quick-shift trigger stop system.

While we haven't gotten our hands on the controller yet, it looks like a good alternative to the Xbox One Elite Controller, which has had some durability issues with the bumpers needing to be replaced. It's more modular too, which gamers who value customization will appreciate. Scruf Prestige is available for pre-order starting today and starts at $159.99. Pre-orders ship within 30 days of purchase.
