    most all the ones I've seen look like Playstation controllers, and range from $20-$40, they did a review of a couple in this months or last months Macworld, it should be on-line somewhere.

    It's not quite what you want but the original Gravis gamepad looks a lot like that. A step up is the Gravis Gamepad Pro whick is around 20 buck. I have them both (the prior being ADB and not in use). The Gamepad Pro is cool though (USB).

    Gravis makes the cheapest game pads you can buy for the mac. I haven't had any trouble Gravis before. :)
