PS2 emulator for Windows (and Linux)

PlayStation2 emulator for Windows

It’s taken a long time, but there’s now a working PlayStation2 emulator for Windows available – it’s called PCSX2, and it’s made by the same people that created PCSX (the Sony PlayStation 1 emulator). Although you need a fairly powerful PC to run PCSX2 – most 2D games can reach 60-120 FPS, and with the latest version of PCSX2, 3D performance can reach speeds greater than the native PS2 frame-rate of 60 FPS (NTSC) or 50 FPS (PAL). It also works on Linux.

    Awesome. Now, all we need is games and we are set. Anyone know where I can get some? Or, do the games work when you just put them into the CD ROM drive?

    All you do is put the disk into you cd/dvd drive, although when you first install it, it is set up to load iso cd images but it isn’t hard to change

    This is great! and it should shut up all the people moaning about “no backwards compatability” for the 40gb and 80gb. Not that i would ever consider playing a ps2 game on my ps3 anyway as they are prehistoric in comaparison. But i would play them on my laptop, im going to get the download now. Thanks for the info

    i was just wondering if that if i download this PCSX2 then would it make PS2 discs compatible with my PC? or would it be something similar to the backwards compatibility of the SONY PS3 60GB? or do i just have to stick with roms?

    Does It Just Let You Play PS2 Games On Your Computer?
    Does It Use The Mouse And Key Board To Play???

    You could also download Yellowdog Linux for PS3(elder version where other OS were possible to be installed) and run the Emulator there, I think I would try and use the GCube emu on it, since it is demanding a sick ass computer to just get near playable ^^

    I have some of the best hardware known to civillians and i still cant get PCSX2 to run correctly. still lags. software cannot detect my processor features. software limitations is again the source of my sorrow.
