    Hello, I have a few doubts about this topic of controllers under Mac OS X

    About PS4:

    -This seems to work fine with bluetooth (at least it's what I've read) ... but do you have to map keys when you sync it to the Mac the first time or just sync via bluetooth and play?

    -Also if anyone had tried it, I would like to know if you can sync x4 ps4 controllers at time and play with four friends without any problems.

    About XB1:

    -This seems to be the worst, I've read that you have to play with the console or install custom drivers, and then buy an APP to map the bottons and sticks... Is this right? Can't you just plug it wired and play like people do in windows?

    -Also I don't know if it will work wireless with the new adapter from Microsoft, anyone tried?

    I know... a lot of doubts, but I will appreciate if someone can share experience and opinions.

    You don't need to map the DuakShock or Sixaxis buttons, but they do not mal correctly with Steam.

    Also consider the MFI controllers such as SteelSeries Nimbus or the new Horipad.
