    So I installed SF4 on my iMac and was wondering what kind of controller is out there to play with this game.

    Any PS3 arcade stick will work as a standard USB device on OS X and Windows. If you don't want to get a arcade stick, you can get the PS3 SF4 controllers. They look like a Genesis 6-Button controller.

    Does the PS3 controller connect to the computer via USB or Bluetooth?

    PS3 arcade sticks are usually USB only. The fighting controller is IR wireless.

    You can use Sixaxis and Dual Shock 3 controllers over USB, but its not that easy. A quick Google search will point you in the right direction.

    And if you like gamepads, you can use the XBOX 360 gamepad - which works on the Mac with the proper drivers.

    While true, if its for SF4, a 360 controller isn't the best idea as the D-Pad is not very well-made and its much cheaper to buy a $20 Logitech controller then a $50 Wired 360 controller.
