    PPSSPP is open source and seems to be available for lots of OSs. I was wondering if a port to the PS2 would be possible? I know the games wouldn't run at full speed but I think it'd be neat as a sort of PoC.

    No where near enough powaaaar.

    Completely pointless to do in practise when it's theoretically proven to be worthless to put effort into.

    I can't find any on 3.55 for cheap, though. I'll just stick with my actual PSP then :D.
    I figured it's too weak but I thought it might be a cool PoC. I guess I could try running it in PS2 Linux maybe... Hm.....

    Probably in PS2 Linux.

    Good luck with 32MB ram, slow I/O, nonstandard GPU, and not-MIPS-MSA support.
