Hey guys,

I am running the latest version of Mac OS X on my iMac. Basically, what I want to do is play some PS1 and PS2 games on my iMac with a PS3 Dualshock3 controller. The iMac has bluetooth built in but I don't know if PS3 controllers can be used with computers or if they are proprietary to PS3?

So I have some questions, I don't know how active these forums are but hopefully someone can answer them:

1) What is the best emulator for OS X that will run both PS1 and PS2 games? I don't mind downloading two seperate emulators (one for PS1, one for PS2) if necessary but I assume since the PS2 can play PS1 games, the PS2 emulator could play PS1 roms?

2) What do I need, if anything, to be able to use a Dualshock 3 controller to play these roms through bluetooth?

3) Where can I get roms for PS1 and PS2 games that will work for these Mac versions of emulators?

Any help is much appreciated!

1.) Mac users can use PCSX for PS1 games. I remember reading that someone was working on porting PCSX2 to the Mac, but I don't think it was ever finished.

2.) PS3 controllers require a specialized USB driver that is only available for PCs at this time. For Bluetooth functionality, a program like Bluesoleil is required. This program is PC only and I don't think there is a Mac equivalent.

3.) You can get PS1/PS2 roms by legally purchasing the game and then ripping it to your hard drive.
