I really wonder if I could run that emulator on my laptop...

And I can use original discs, right? Or do I need ISOs?


What are your specs? Emulation speed (in general) relies a lot in CPU speed (not clockspeed).

Here's a link to the specs. It's in Japanese though... but the important points should be understandable.

If not, I'll post info when I come back from work.

Btw, I have the one with the specs on the left (gold) column.

This is a beefy laptop and you should be able to run many games with full speed. The GPU is of course not the best but should do! Give it a try, PCSX2 is awesome.

I think your i7 CPU, mobile or not, should be great for PS2 emulation.

My old Core 2 Duo E8400 wasn't capable of emulating PS2. Here are comparisions of my old and your CPU:

My new i5-4570 is great, it only goes up max to about 25% usage when emulating PS2 games on all 4 cores.

The have quite similar performance.

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

GC and Wii are newer tech than PS2, of course they will look better, captain.

This superiority complex makes me laugh. Why play game that is "meant" for inferior machines? It feels kinda cheating to play a game in a system that was "never meant" to be played.

yup its a known fact that both the og xbox and gcube upscale a lot better Tha the ps2, also I would add in ps1 with the snes as all time best console



old skool

Yes i love PS2 emulation and all other emulations (Cant wait for the X360 and PS3 emus to start working good).

I have most of my console game collection on my PC using steam as a front end to launch each game as if they where PC games.

Heres Persona 3

Thanks! I'm really tempted to try it. DQ8 in high resolution would be awesome.

Thanks! That was very helpful!

What controllers do you guys use for PS2 emulation?
