    I just played kingdom hearts 358/2 days on ds and i think its one of the best games in the action rpg genre
    However I'm not up to speed with the series, i was wondering if there was any way that i could play the first 2 games on my mac or pc as i don't own a ps2\3
    Any help would be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    Yes there are ps2 emulators around that work pretty good. But you need a blazing pc to run them good. dual core at minimum and then im not sure.

    Ps2s go for very cheap these days... I have bought several ps2 slim in my region for about 50 $ in the past months for my family looking on classified add websites. You can use freemcboot (google) to play backup pretty easy without a modchip. Its better than to invest in a blasing fast PC anyways.

    BtW I am on Kingdom heart ATM Its very AMAZING GAME not for little kid as it is challenging (I just beated Ursula this morning tough fight)

    hmm, i think there are ways to run pcsx2 on a mac, although you have a have an intel based processor. Having a brand new pc/mac does not mean having a monster PC. pcsx2 site states the recommended specs is:

    Recommended
    * Windows Vista 32bit/64bit
    * CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 3.2ghz or better
    * GPU: 8600gt or better
    * 1gb RAM (2gb if on Vista)

    keep in mind that even with these specs, you will most likely never run a game with little to no lag

    Honestly, you can get a used PS2 for $60 or less. That includes all your wires and controllers. And I picked up a copy of Kingdom Hearts for around $10, including S&H. There's plenty of other awesome games that are worth buying a PS2 anyway.

    got it working on mac using a program called zerops2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOyk8P6Py-Y...feature=related
    few graphical glitches here and there but nothing game breaking

    im surprised at ho well it runs considering my specs
    2 GHz intel core 2 duo
    and a 1gb ram

    only problem is you need to use keyboard but it's not as bad as it sounds

    wat?
    That's the whole point of Video Games, to give the player a challenge.
