PCSX2 is a Playstation 2 Emulattor for Windows

PCSX2 is a Playstation 2 emulator for PC which has been going for over 10 years. The compatibility rates boast over 80% of all PS2 games as playable and provides an enjoyable experience for reasonably powerful computers, but provides support for lower end computers for those curious to seeing their Playstation 2 games working on their PC!

The emulator provides means of using controllers to simulate the Playstation experience and gives you the ability to either run the games straight from the disc or as an ISO image from your hard drive.

Other notable features are as follow:

Savestates - You can press one button to save the current "State" of your game so if you need to turn it off, you can jump right back to where you were without waiting for the game to load!

Unlimited Memory Cards - You can save as many memory cards as you like, you are no longer limited to the single physical cards like you would be on the real machine. What's even better, you can have anything from 8mb to 64mb cards!

Higher Definition Graphics - With PCSX2 you have the ability to play your games in 1080p, or even 4K HD if you want to! The graphics plugin GSDX gives you the opportunity to simulate the real experience or make your game look like a Playstation 3 HD re-release!.

The only thing you require other than the emulator and a game is your Playstation 2 BIOS, which can be extracted from your console.

"Good Emulator takes a little skill to set up"

One you dump your bois and get the plug in's, works really good. Emulation is very good. Just need to do a lot of work on set up and settings to get it work. Like any emulator not all games work. You need to read what games work. (People have forgotten how to read and want everything just point and click now a days.)

Pros
  • Very good Emulation. Games I tried have great emulation. Game Play seems to be smooth. Works with my usb controller.
Cons
  • Takes a lot of work to set it up. BOIS, plugins, Configure alot of settings. Each pc seems to need a different set up.
