    Have been looking to get a new controller as my Logitech Dual Action Pad is worn out.Would like to get something with as many configurations,comfortable and would run well on my Mac.
    What you got? and what games/type suit?

    I'm using and developing my game with a 360 controller, though it's a PC game. I recommend that for non-keyboard/mouse games, or using a Wii Classic Controller if there are Mac drivers now (it's great on the PC).

    You cant beat first party console controllers, so the 360 is the best one for computers.

    Yes but I think it unregisters the controller with the PS3, so everytime you switch you have to rejoin it with the computer or ps3. Wired is a lot less hassle.

    The Xbox 360 controller is pretty nice. Use this driver.

    That's exactly my setup too :)

    Though I don't like the caps lock prevention on the keyboard. On mine quick presses on the caps key doesn't activate it. A problem of the most minor order though.

    :eek: The mouse is acceptable, :) but that keyboard MUST DIE!!! DAM APPLE! :mad:

    I'm not sure what I'll buy now for keyboards when my G4's black one dies. I lost my G5 white and second G4 black from water of all things -- I pored tea on the one I'm using in 2003 and it still works great.

    I like my mice to have weight and not feel cheap. I also hate cords! :eek:
