I have a PC as well as a Xbox 360 and have played games on both. Now that I'm becoming more of a Mac person though I will get into some mac gaming. I'm trying to avoid having to buy too many controllers. Most of the games I'm fine with a gamepad but I like car racing games so a wheel controller would be nice. What I'm looking at is possibly the Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows so that I can use the same controllers on both my XBox 360 and PC. My question, has anyone tried using this on a Mac?
If not I am interested in any suggestions of good gaming controllers for the Mac.

If it's not officially supported, and it uses USB, you could always try USB Overdrive.

You'll only end up running Bootcamp for games anyway so I wouldn't worry. There is a Preference Panel thingum for the 360 Wireless controller, but I could never make it work.
