meant to be able to, haven't tested it yet. Have got the emulator for it, just never got around to testing it out. Have tested the N64 emulator with super mario kart and it works perfectly.

Re: Playstation Games On X Box?

i'd imagine the xbox wouldnt be able to emulate it very fast. the ps2 is very different in tech specs to the xbox. dunno if you guys are tech savvy or not. the ps2's system bus (read. thing that all information is passed through) is alot wider than the xbox's..

possible for sure, but doubt it would be fast

I think not but there's always someone that can prove you wrong in this world.
More and more of the games are available on both consoles these days anyway.

Well very soon the PS2 will be released with a Hard Disk, so will the reverse then be true and Xbox games will be able to be played on the PS2 ??

Re: Playstation Games On X Box?

I own a modded PS2 and before buying that I looked into this myth. A PSone emu. is already available for the Xbox, along with N64, SNES, NES, Genesis (mega drive), MAME, and a few others. However, at the moment PS2 emulating would be possible IF you want to play the whole game like its in super slo mo.

The Xbox has a faster processor than the PS2, but the PS2 has more RAM. Thus, only the teeny weeny PS2 games could be possible to emulate on the Xbox... but I still doubt it. I have contacted numerous mod guys and all of them so far have said that it would be near impossible to get it working smoothly if at all.

Some people even think that the N64 emulator runs far from perfect and that the only games that do work fine is Mario 64, and Mario Kart.

Re: Playstation Games On X Box?

Unlike computer games, Console games are written around the console itself, with its limitations in mind. So something that runs well on a PS2, might run like a dog on Xbox, and vice versa (of course if it was at all possible).

The people who write the games obviously utilise the particular consoles equipment (ie faster processor for the Xbox, or bigger RAM for the PS2) to make the games run smoothly.

Of course i'm talkin' outta my ass here.

Re: Playstation Games On X Box?

does anyone know if there is a PS2 emulator for PC yet? I looked into it ages ago and there wasn't and likely never would be..

Though if you wan't to play ps1 games the emulators for that and pretty damn good. Especially with opengl and direct3d - playstation 1 games never looked that pretty(ish)!

Re: Playstation Games On X Box?

Can you throw some info up for the PSOne emulators for the PC? I had a hunt around a while ago, and only ever found ones that would cost something, or dodgy looking sites selling Russian brides.
