Controllers for Mac

Are there Xbox or Playstation controllers that work well on the Mac? Wired/Bluetooth?

Does anyone use a controller for the Mac? I'm thinking of getting one for racing games; using a keyboard doesn't really work that well I find.

Did you require extra software or drivers to configure it properly?

Awesome. Thank you. Can you link me to the controller you use? (Or model / model number.)

I use a wired Logitech F310 controller. It works fine except you have to have it in DirectInput mode to be recognised. It works fine with GRID by default and I used GamepadCompanion to map the controller for Hotline Miami and that works great too.

Thanks.
