    for some nutso reason i'm kind of looking forward to tinkering with Madden 08 on my imac. IMO it should play fairly decent as it normally isn't too graphic intense. then again, never played a sports sim on my mac either.

    anyhow, i know in the past that EA upgraded their gamepad requirements for cetain PC sports games. anyone have any idea which will be the best usb gamepad for use on the mac? or anyone have any idea what the gamepad requirements will be? or what the recommended gamepad is on windows and if it would be transferrable over to the mac? i don't see any mention of this at apple... and playing a sports game such as football or baseball or hockey on a computer without a gamepad really isn't fun.

    i know it shouldn't be a big deal but just curious if EA is in bed with a certain pad manufacturer again to force buyers to upgrade to a specific type of pad or brand. like they did a few years back with MVP baseball (which i used to mod like crazy for windows).

    thanks in advance.
