Emulator software enabling compatibility of Playstation 2 games with Windows
Windows XP / Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows 2000 / Windows 8
PCSX2 is an emulator of the popular home gaming console, the Playstation 2. Able to play backup copies of most games, PCSX2 is a great solution for the gamer whose collection has outlasted their system. However, its success is not always guaranteed. As many kinks in the software are still being worked out, emulation can not be guaranteed to work. Thus, more than a few games will simply not work, or require a very powerful computer to run. Yet, the customization available in gaming on your personal computer as opposed to a home console can have benefits as well, such as upgraded graphics and better framerates as opposed to the games' original releases.
