PCSX2 is a free and open-source PlayStation 2 (PS2) emulator. Its purpose is to emulate the PS2's hardware, using a combination of MIPS CPU Interpreters, Recompilers and a Virtual Machine which manages hardware states and PS2 system memory. This allows you to play PS2 games on your PC, with many additional features and benefits.
The PCSX2 project has been running for more than ten years. Past versions could only run a few public domain game demos, but newer versions can run most games at full speed, including popular titles such as Final Fantasy X and Devil May Cry 3. Visit the PCSX2 compatibility list to check the latest compatibility status of games (with more than 2500 titles tested), or ask for help in the official forums.
The latest officially released stable version is version 1.6.0.
Installers and binaries for both Windows and Linux are available from our website.
Development builds are also available from our website.
|- Windows 7 or newer (32 or 64 bit) - Ubuntu 18.04/Debian or newer, Arch Linux, or other distro (32 or 64 bit)||- Supports SSE2 - PassMark Single Thread Performance rating near or greater than 1600 - Two physical cores, with hyperthreading||- Direct3D10 support - OpenGL 3.x support - PassMark G3D Mark rating around 3000 (GeForce GTX 750) - 2 GB Video Memory||4 GB|
Note: Recommended Single Thread Performance is based on moderately complex games. Games that pushed the PS2 hardware to its limits will struggle on CPUs at this level. Some release titles and 2D games which underutilized the PS2 hardware may run on CPUs rated as low as 1200. A quick reference for CPU intensive games: Wiki, Forum and CPU light games: Forum
|- Windows 10 (64 bit) - Ubuntu 19.04/Debian or newer, Arch Linux, or other distro (64 bit)||- Supports AVX2 - PassMark Single Thread Performance rating near or greater than 2100 - Four physical cores, with or without hyperthreading||- Direct3D11 support - OpenGL 4.5 support - PassMark G3D Mark rating around 6000 (GeForce GTX 1050 Ti) - 4 GB Video Memory||8 GB|
Note: Recommended GPU is based on 3x Internal, ~1080p resolution requirements. Higher resolutions will require stronger cards; 6x Internal, ~4K resolution will require a PassMark G3D Mark rating around 12000 (GeForce GTX 1070 Ti). Just like CPU requirements, this is also highly game dependent. A quick reference for GPU intensive games: Wiki
