Is it possible to pair a PS3 controller with a MacBook? If so, could I use it with emulators as a controller?

When I called Sony about pairing my controller, the rep said it might brick the controller. What do you guys think?

For about $10, you can (or at least used to be able to) get a PSX-to-USB adaptor at Radio Shack. You can plug any PS1 or (I assume) PS2 controller into it. Works great with emus.

You'd have to have the appropriate drivers, and I do not believe that there are drivers to use the controller yet, if there ever will be.

I believe there are Wii controller drivers and there are certainly 360 controller drivers out there. If you've got spare ones lying around that is.

It doesn't make it better, it's still without bluetooth support.

What's your point?
