    I am pretty happy with the gaming capabilities the Macbook Pro Aluminium has, but it is lacking the numeric keypad desktops have. I have seen tutorials that explain how to install your USB PS3 Sixaxis on your PC. I tried following one: http://zedomax.com/blog/2006/12/09/ps3-hack-ps3-six-axis-controller-can-be-used-in-windows/

    I am able to find the controller, but after that I cant use it. Let me explain, when you open the controller settings, and move the analogs nothing happens.

    Has anyone tried it yet? Any success stories?
