    it doesn't sound like it is possible but since the ps2 is old enough in thinking maybe we can get something out of it... I'm not asking it to emulate original Xbox games I know this thing is basically a PowerMac G3 im just trying to see if it can play anything other than Nintendo games

    PS2 requires moderately powerful CPUs, the Wii U doesn't have the power to emulate it.

    No but it can emulate you trying to emulate a PS2.

    It can also emulate emulators emulating emulators.

    And for the extra-special people, you can even use your Wii U as a toaster.
    Disclaimer: Wii U may not actually cook your toast and may not function as a game console afterwards.

    Still not N64? Even the Wii has one.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    It doesn't really, though, man. C'mon. Stop spreading this false BS.

    Yeah, if you can't even get PS1 working correctly from the wiiu, don't count on the PS2 working either.

    No, the WiiU is not simply not powerfull enough. An PS2 Emulator is out of the question.

    PS2 emu on the Wii U?
    Yeh it's possible.
    Playable framerate?
    Nah, not by a long shot.

    Also, the PS2 doesn't have a PPC CPU iirc.
    Besides, Wii U has a tri-core PPC, similar to the 360, far far more modern then a G3 PPC CPU.

    compatibility is trash lol if you can play 20% of the n64 library injected is already too much and im being very generous saying 20%.

    Original xbox is probably easier than PS2 to emulate full speed on WiiU.

    Not a chance on the Wii U. Either buy a PS2 on eBay or something or get a PS3 which are super cheap and install CFW.

    Can’t the Wii U emulate the Gamecuve and isn’t the GC more powerful than the PS2?
