[Guide] Pairing SonyPlaystation 3 Dualshock 3 controller with Macbook Pro (Mac OS X)

My previous article is on how to pair a DualShock 3 controller with MBP running Windows. Now this article is trying to achieving the same purpose, but on Mac OS X.

Great news if you are running Snow Leopard because SL is now natively support Sony PS3 controller. Which means that if you had enabled the Bluetooth on your Mac OS X and press the PS logo on your PS3 controller, the OS will be able to detect it correctly. Previous OS build requires user to install a custom small-file sized driver in order for it to be detected.

Now after you had paired it with your OS, another problem exist. How to map the key? Unlike windows which has a Game Controller panel which enable user to calibrate and confirm the controller had been detected and mapped correctly, there is no way to do it on Mac OS.

There are several third party software available but I would highly recommend GameCompanion, which is available on Mac App Store here.

In short, GameCompanion enable you to map your PS3 controller button to a certain keystroke. Now you can use the controller and test it on your favorite emulator.

[Guide] Pairing SonyPlaystation 3 Dualshock 3 controller with Macbook Pro (Windows)

This guide is about how to pair a SonyPlaystation 3 Dualshock 3 controller on Apple Macbook Pro / iMac which has an integrated bluetooth module and running Windows (either bootcamp or VMWare Fusion / Parallels)

I had been searching all over the Internet for guide on pairing up my beloved Sony Playstation 3 DualShock3 controller with Windows 7 x64 running on VMWare Fusion on my Macbook Pro 13' 2011. The obvious answer to do so is of course by using motioninjoy. However, using it is only possible on USB cable, bluetooth, uh-huh. Since it doesn't support MBP integrated bluetooth chipset, which means that I couldn't use the DS3 via bluetooth.

So I thought, is there any other ways to pairing my DS3 with Windows 7 via bluetooth? Well I had finally managed to find a way to do so without using motioninjoy but it might requires additional steps.

Before you proceed to the rest of the guide, make sure you had enabled the bluetooth on your bootcamp or virtualized Windows. To verify, go to Device Manager and see whether there is a bluetooth item header there. Alternatively, you should see a bluetooth icon in the taskbar. FYI, my test setup was on a 2011 Macbook Pro 13' i5 and VMWare Fusion.
