Scuf Gaming Passes Major Milestone with Grant Of 100th Patent

November 26, 2019

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 26, 2019--

Scuf Gaming ®, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, through its patent subsidiary, Ironburg Inventions, has expanded its global patent portfolio to 103, with the addition of 7 granted patents in Europe.

Scuf Gaming’s latest patents expand the international coverage of its in-case trigger stop feature. Trigger stops significantly reduce the travel distance of the trigger. Since its invention in 2011, the trigger control system has become a necessity for shooter games, where every millisecond matters, because it allows for quicker aim and firing.

With these new patents, Scuf Gaming now has 103 granted patents and designs in eleven different countries with an additional 55 pending patent applications.

“Advanced trigger control features are at the core of console gameplay and have become a standard in competitive gaming. When we started redefining how controllers were used nearly a decade ago, reducing unnecessary trigger pull was one of our first steps,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Founder of Scuf Gaming. “By inventing trigger stops, we enabled faster and more efficient gameplay, particularly on shooter games. It is very exciting to reach 100 granted patents, and to do so with one of our very first inventions.”
