Buy an emulator that won't work.

In other words, you can't.

Jr-FOG-Mikey is right. You can pick up the PS2 for less than 100 Euros now.

Yes there is, PCSX2 is an excellent free PS2 emulator which can run a lot of commercial games. However there are two problems:

Firstly most of the Smackdown range seem to have problems, I know one of them is being debugged for the next version and another is extremely laggy.

Secondly, your PC is far too weak. The most compatible and fastest proper 3D game is Final Fantasy X, which I've tried to run on my Pentium 4, 7800GS system and not managed to get a half decent framerate. It's an extremely CPU intensive piece of software, so an AMD single core machine clocked fast enough can play FFX properly, but to really make progress with the emulator you need dual core, I think ideally speaking an overclocked E6600 is what you'll need to have a good experience. Check out their site for more information at www.pcsx2.net

Oh and one further thing, you will need to use your BIOS from your own PS2 in order to make the emulator work, which then sets on complications of getting it. It's all legal if you do it properly though

Yes. Like I said, most emulators are cons.

ps2 emulator
dont even think about it.. you can get in prison for emulating ps2 games on pc... cops will be busting in your room... and if you spread this emu with your friends it so happens youll get your friends involved...
snes, sega games are ok because this are face out games and doesnt get reproduce in the market.... emulating ps2 game is considered hacking and is illegal, becoz sony ps2 is still reproducing games thats business.

And for your information, PCSX2 is a freely available emulator, which is not a con. It's coded by some hard working people who make it available for free.

Furthermore, you have to own a PS2 in order to use it, so there are no problems in terms of Sony or whatever.

However, you are welcome to your opinion.

If you don't buy PS2 games, then you are illegally obtaining them, regardless of whether you hurl them out of a window or play them. If you buy them, and then play them using an emulator, how is that a problem because 'Sony is still producing games'. Nonsensical.

It will only work if he takes the effort to not do it illegally, which you don't seem to be interested in.

This guy has put some effort into putting some videos on youtube, you can take a look for yourself if you wish.

Further information has been posted by him in the official forum for PCSX2.

I don't honestly care if you don't believe that this emulator is genuine, but I think it's rather sad that you feel the need to blast it as being a con when you have never used it, and have no idea what it is.

lol emulators are real, I use both ps2 and ps1 on my pc and they work fine, it takes a long time to configure them and you need to find the bios for them but they do work.

who ever said police come busting into your room is in a world of his own, for one if you own a ps2, you can legally use a ps2 emulator the same applies for the games.

its only illegal if you dont own one, and I think the police would prefer to knock

If you had used it, you would know that it worked. On a sidenote, I think you're hilarious.
