Fans of the NBA 2K League teams can now get their hands on special new controllers to celebrate the league. Thanks to Scuf Gaming, a total 21 themed 2K League controllers are on the way inspired by the league’s teams. They’ll be specifically for PlayStation 4 or PC use, and carry an array of color schemes or themes to choose from. They’ll also bring a much higher price tag than the standard controller does, but for good reason.

Improved “performance and comfort” are the main selling points, along with celebrating that particular 2K League squad.

A major selling point in terms of the customizable options is that each gamer can set up the controller based on what works best for their hands. These Scuf Vantage controllers allow for different trigger covers, rings, and domed or concave thumbsticks, among other options. A better fit, feel, and grip brings about better gaming for many people.
