PCSX2 (a Playstation 2 emulator)

PCSX2 is a Playstation 2 emulator, a free program that tries to replicate the Playstation 2 console to enable you to play PS2 games on a Linux PC.

Advantages over the Playstation 2 console:

* Custom resolutions, up to 4096x4096, Anti Aliasing, and Texture filtering
* Unlimited memory cards
* Save states, enabling you to quick save and load practically anywhere in your game
* Easy cheating using our pnach patching system
* Use any controller or keyboards and mice
* Increase or decrease the game speed by using the built-in frame-limiter
* Ability to record in full HD with the built-in video recorder (F12 using the GSdx plugin)


I think this is a brilliant target as it is a very involved process to get PCSX2 setup. If I recall correctly the last two times I’ve set it up I’ve found it was easier to build PCSX2 from source than try to get the application all of its various ins and outs.
