    So Apple released their new API for iOS 7 & OS X 10.9 for game controllers. Cool.

    As I used my PS3 gamepad on OS X before, I wanted to try it out with the new API - doesn't work. Most probably only Apple certified gamepads will work out of the box - great.

    My idea is to create some sort of driver, software or something that would make a DualShock 3 work just like one of those MFi branded controllers.

    There isn't really much information on how it works so I am not exactly sure where to start from. Maybe you guys have some thoughts on it?

    isn't the Dualshock 3 already HID compliant over Bluetooth?

    It is, but apparently Apple doesn't want to support HID compliant gamepads but only their own gamepads.
