Why PlayStation 2 Games?

Android Playstation 2 emulator has worth because everybody in the gaming world knows the name of the biggest gaming consoles company, Sony. It’s most successive product was the PlayStation. It allowed the users to play the games on the console without any lag and complacency as compared to the PC. PlayStation 1’s entry in the world was a huge blast of the technology and every child of that era wanted a PlayStation. After that PlayStation 2 was introduced and was also an improved and much powerful than its predecessor.

Play Station 2 was much popular and even so powerful that it competed with the 7th generation of gaming station and was playing almost all the games of up to 2011 smoothly. It even though played the modern games like Grand Theft Auto San Andreas which was the highest selling game which was sold about 17.33 million copies. PS2 was a much better and improved than the play station one because it had various options like the upgradations of storage space by a hard disk drive. It used DVD instead of standard CD and also had the options of USB ports. Moreover, it also supported the games of PlayStation 1 or PSX.

Playstation 2 is discontinued by Sony in 2013 because of an introduction of newer models. But still, if you are interested in Playing PS2 Games on Android phones you can try this tutorial. Playing PlayStation 1 games is very much easier and is almost playable on all devices, but PlayStation 2 on Android is bit tough. PLAYSTATION 1 EMULATOR IS STABLE VERSION, BUT PLAYSTATION 2 EMULATOR IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT PHASES AND MAYBE A BIT BUGGIER. But still, if you want to run it try out by following the tutorial.

Phone Specification Requirements

It requires a high-end smartphone up till now because it is in the development phase. According to my calculation, an Android phone with almost 3 gigabytes ram and a decent 2.0 gigahertz Quad core processor at a minimum could play the PlayStation 2 games. But don’t worry in near future it would be even playable on the low-end smartphone. It also requires a minimum of Android Lollipop 5.1. Hence I recommend using Android Marshmallow 6.0 or later. Also, do not forget to turn off any power saver which is turned on as it can drastically lower the performance of the app.

Tested phones

This application is tested and recommended for the following devices and had run most of the PS2 games on Android phones.

  • Samsung Galaxy S7
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 5
  • Nexus 6p
  • HTC 10
  • HTC ONE M9
  • LG G5
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 7

  1. It is simple enough emulator because it is still in the development phases as I mentioned up. So you will not need to set up any advanced settings for the emulator. Moreover, you can also not modify its quality setting much and other options. It may come in near future
  2. As I told in the phone specifications required to run the emulator, the application may be clumsy and slow on low-end smartphones. I have tested on Samsung galaxy s7 and Samsung galaxy s7 and also the nexus 6p. So kindly if your device cannot run the application wait for the stable version.
  3. There will be a frame-skipping feature in near future so it would be available for low-end phones also.
  4. If you cannot see your game cover than long press the icon and click edit button when appears and click the default option to bring the art cover back.
