Has anybody got any experience using an Xbox controller with a Mac? I know you can run the firmware on a PC. If not, cheap controller recommendations would be welcome!

I've never used an Xbox controller with my Mac (I don't even own an Xbox), but TUAW says it works.

Looks promising! Will give it a go at the weekend and get back to you :) – Rowan Jul 7 '10 at 23:11
