The Best Playstation 2 (PS2) Emulator for PC: PCSX2 (Install guide: setup / config) UPDATED


Hi all, in this video I go over the best Playstation 2 (PS2) Emulator for PC. PCSX2 is an incredible emulator that has a TON of options.

Included in this video is a tutorial / installation guide with the settings that I use/recommend in order to get your games up and running great!

Please note that most PC setups vary in some way, shape or form, so your settings may differ slightly from mine.

Full list of improvements for version 1.6.0:


BIOS (for reference):

From the Wiki page:

Minimum (most games will be unplayable slow)

Windows/Linux OS
CPU: Any that supports SSE2 (Pentium 4 and up, Athlon64 and up)
GPU: Any that supports Pixel Shader model 2.0, except Nvidia FX series (broken SM2.0, too slow anyway)
512MB RAM (note that Windows Vista needs at least 2GB to run reliably)


Windows Vista / Windows 7 (32bit or 64bit) with the latest DirectX
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 3.2 GHz or better OR i3/i5/i7 @ 2,8 GHz or better OR AMD Phenom II @ 3,2 GHz or better
GPU: 8800gt or better (for Direct3D10 support)
RAM: 1GB on Linux/Windows XP, 2GB or more on Vista / Windows 7

PCSX2 is a Playstation 2 emulator for Windows and Linux. It was started by the team behind PCSX (an emulator for the original PlayStation) back in 2002, and as of late 2013 development is still active. The emulator achieved playable speeds only by mid-2007 and subsequent versions have improved speed and compatibility making it both the ultimate solution for PS2 emulation and the instrument to keep and preserve the PS2 legacy in the modern world. Though not yet perfect the program can successfully emulate most commercial PS2 games at playable speeds and good visuals (often better than the original PS2).

  2. Got a problem here:
    After installing the PCSX2 a shortcut appears with the name of "PCSX2 1.6.0" once i pressed that the two links appear so i just press next and a download like bar appears,i waited untill it's finished and pressed next again,but here's the problem
    The second time i pressed next again a message appears that says:
    The Selected OS plugin failed to load
    Reason: The plugin reports that your hardware or software/drivers are not supported
    G: (Where it's installed)PCSX2pluginsGSSdx32-SSE4.dll
    All plugins must have valid selections for PCSX2 to run. If you're unable to make valid selection due to missjng plugins or and incomplete install of PCSX2,then press cancel to close the Configuration panel.
    At this point the only thing i can do is either press back or cancel
    Note: i'm new to pc so idk what's wrong here

  3. I have no idea why I am doing this, I have my ps2 hooked up in my basement and a working copy of the only game I want to play. Oh well I guess

  4. Who the heck doesn’t show us how to download bios? That has been what’s always the trouble with PS2 emulators

  5. This might seem like a dumb question but I would like to ask. Will PCSX2 also run PS1 Roms? I was thinking about playing the entire Suikoden series and use the completed saves for the perks when starting the next title.

  6. so im trying to launch medal of honor euro assult, it seems to be taking forever to load … no special settings just fresh installed … does loading games usually take a long time?

  7. What is your opinion on ps2 android emulation now we are at half of 2020? I’m totally disappointed! Do you have any suggestions?
