    Hi so I'm new to this forum so if I'm not posting this in the right place I'M REALLY SORRY.

    I recently got an Afterglow PS3 wireless controller from my parents who know nothing about gaming etc and just bought the first controller they saw (I can return it but I wanted to see if I could make it work first).

    I had tried other controllers on my macbook, for example, a second party xbox controller that worked after installing some drivers but I can't make this one work and wanted to know if it's me that I don't know how to do it or that there isn't a way for this to be done so I better return it and get our money back.

    If someone could help me! Thanks a lot

    For Macs, it's generally better to stick with first-party controllers. Official Sony PS3 and PS4 models are well supported by many games and can be used via Bluetooth without need of extra software.

    Probably best to return it. XBox controllers seem to work better with Macs.
