Playstation 2 has a special place in all our hearts. It served our childhoods well with a plethora of games based on popular cartoons, movies and anime. If you didn’t own a Nintendo as a kid, then you definitely owned a Playstation 2. It reigned as the ultimate gaming console for at least a decade before being toppled over by up and coming consoles like Xbox. Regardless, it left an indelible mark in both gaming history and gamer hearts.


It came as no surprise then when this love for PlayStation 2 compelled a group of developers to create the PCSX software. PCSX is a PlayStation 2 emulator that enables users to play PlayStation2 games on their PC consoles. It is probably one of the first game consoles to have its own emulator. It comes with a high level of operability, allowing it to run on multiple platforms spanning from Linux to the latest version of Windows. In addition, it comes embedded with network plays and plug-in features that make it a fan favourite in the emulating community. We shall look at more of its features below.

Key Features Of PCSX

Variable Controllers
You can use whatever device you want to control the emulator. And when we say whatever, we mean you can even use your Xbox controller!

High-Resolution Gameplay
Believe it or not, you can play the oldest PS2 games in customisable resolutions. This means you can level up the resolution to HD, making it look twice as amazing as it does on your Playstation. 

Unlimited Memory Cards
The harrowing fear of not being able to save games is perished using emulators. Now play tons of games without worrying over insufficient memory storage. In fact, you can save progress at any random point in the game. It will load from that exact point when you resume it.

Record Your Game
PCSX comes with an inbuilt recorder that lets you record your gameplay in its entirety. Pretty cool huh?
