    So they are working on port of pcsx2 for arm64, where Switch will be the main target for optimizations?
    Cool

    That’s ridiculous imo not saying anything bad about it but I Will shit my pants if that happens we don’t even have pcsx2 for anything aside from x86 porting to aarch64 not impossible but I’ll be surprised if it’s real I would even eat my words and pay 100 bucks for it but I hope this is true it would be crazy

    @burt111 it's not impossible, because one of ps2 emulators for Android is based on stolen code from pcsx2 and performance is rather good.

    Technically you can already play Chain of Memories using the GBA emulator in Retroarch. I'm still taking a wait and see approach about fully playable PS2 games on Switch.

    Awesome! Is there any way around PS2 Isos that are greater than 4 GB? Cause that's like most PS2 games.

    A) You can split them
    B) You can compress them to CSO or ISZ

    It can be compiled but don't expect it to run well at all.

    ps2 is harder then n64 emulation, which is like barely running full speed in some games.
