Inside Mac Games has posted a hardware review of the P3000 Wireless Pad, a new wireless game controller from Saitek, and our own Ken Leyden has the inside scoop. The reviews covers everything from the pad's features, its compatibility with games, and more. Here's an excerpt from the article:

The P3000 really shone with MacMAME, however, most likely due to the simpler non-analog control schemes that arcade classics require. I test-played Xenophobe, Tempest, Defender, Asteroids, and Xybots for this review and had a total blast! The whole "MAME" experience is greatly enhanced by using a gamepad over keyboard/mouse control (I don't even think computer mice existed when Asteriods was brand-new to the arcades). One word of caution when using MacMAME and USB device driver software: since each different ROM file uses a slightly different key setup, you will need to experiment with several different configurations until you find one that allows you to play the games you like without having to reconfigure the gamepad between different games.
For more information, be sure to read the full review. A link has been attached to the bottom of this article.
