I have an odd question. I'm using an Xbox 360 wired controller to play emulator games on my Mac. I want to be able to launch an app, the emulator, by pushing the "Xbox button" in the middle of the controller. Is there anyway to do this? Please let me know. Thanks in advance.

You need a joystick mapper. Some might allow you to assign to a hotkey/app.

What you probably need to do is set up a application shortcut in system preferences to an app. Then map that hotkey to whatever button you want on the 360.

Here is an app for that (http://joystickmapper.com/) ;)
