PCSX2 PlayStation 2 Emulator

The open source PS2 emulator

Last Updated on

A PlayStation 2 emulator that dates back to 2002 and has continuously been supported since its inception. There are alternatives now coming out of the woodwork, but it cannot be denied that PCSX2 is one of the gold standards for emulation out there. It not only supports things like netplay and uprezing, but it can read your classic PS2 discs for the true experience.

The PlayStation 2 needs no introduction. One of the highest-selling machines on the planet, with one of the greatest libraries of games available to it, it truly was both behemoth and slim behemoth.

Filled to the brim with classics like Metal Gear Solid 3, Shadow of the Colossus and Final Fantasy X, the console is also home to some of the more obscure games out there and tonnes of horror titles. This is the defacto console if you want a spook, wrestle with some controls and see some games that you won’t find anywhere else.

A lot of the titles hold up today, making it one of the most accessible consoles, especially to the generation that might have to emulate before they get hold of the actual copies or downloads.

To download PCSX2, follow the big old button below and be sure to have a look at some of the guides if you’re brand new to the emulation of the PlayStation 2.
