I have got a mac mini as multimedia and gaming station for my TV. Now i would like to play those games with my Xbox Pads, a have one wired and tree wireless pads.

I have googled it and i found some drivers to make them run under macos. But it seams just to work for the wired controllers.

What driver do you use? And do i need some additional hardware for the wireless controllers?

There are a couple of drivers out there that allow you to use an xbox controller on a mac, for example Wired controllers can just be plugged into a usb port, but to use a wireless controller, you need an Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver.
