  1. Ok this is really exciting, the question on my mind is could this be brought over to the Vita? I’ve read countless comments that range from “the vita could never emulate ps2” to “of course the vita can emulate ps2″…does this mean there’s at least hope for our beloved vita?

  2. i hate to say it but prob not the vita does not have the power needed to run a proper PS2 emu. but with the hacks coming out for the PS4 maybe we could see it there someday.

  3. On the current absolute best android system, I wonder how well a PS2 emulator will run if its progress was as far as PCSX2 is.

  4. Well it is not saying much but my gamestick (I know not a “high end” device” struggles with Dreamcast which is less system resources hungry and further along but I’m sure this has great potential!!

  5. I like trucks go boom boom!
