Help me use my PS3 controller with my MacBook Pro!

I recently got a PS3 controller working with my brother's Windows PC so he could play some console-ported games without having to use a mouse/keyboard combo. Now I'm wondering if it's possible to do the same thing with my MacBook Pro, since there are a few indie games I'd like to play that would really benefit from a controller.
I've done a lot of Googling, and most solutions seem to involve buying a relatively expensive app to get the controller working. Does anyone know of a way of doing this without having to pay for something? Either USB or Bluetooth connectivity would be fine. I'm using a 2011 MBP with Lion, if that makes any difference.
