Well I don't know about pacman or tetris, but I use a USB XBox 360 controller to play my games (lego star wars etc) - works great and is comfy to use.

I haven't found anything it does not work with...

I have the wireless 360 controllers but I didn't they worked under OS X. Do they have official drivers from Microsoft? Or are you using 3rd party drivers?

If they are designed to work on a PC (ie not the ones that came with your xbox) then they will work on the mac - cant remember where I found the driver (as I had lost the CD that came with mine).

You dont need any driver to use the PS3 controller.

Just plug it using the USB connection the first time, and then you can use it over BT.

You need to do this because the controller is synced with your playstation, so it is the best way to sync up with your mac. You'll need to plug it via USB to your PS3 if you want to use it with the videoconsole again.

I use it to play MAME videogames and it works very nice! :)
