    OP - the one you listed is no longer available.

    You can use any USB PC controller - the default drivers should work fine.

    You can also get console controllers to USB adapters for cheap also and those will work as well.

    Thanks! Fixed the link. I think I'm just going to go for it--only $5 and better than banging the keys on my keyboard.

    OK --- :)

    Now that we are on the subject...

    How about the PS3 Bluetooth controller , from what I have read they will work if you do this :

    Step 1 Take out of box ! LOL

    Step 1: ( for real ) - Plug in the supplied USB cable and goto Sys.Pref.

    Step 2 : Set up the controller for Bluetooth ( while leaving it plugged in )

    Step 3 : Save the settings by clicking the + sign under the left pane

    Step 4 : Unplug and use

    Is there anything I am missing ? Because BB as them on sale this week for
    45 buck`r`roos !

    Any suggestions ? Many thanks :D
