    Its been a long time since Ive used the ps2 emulation on my non-BC slim. Has there been any improvements in recent years?

    In my experience, many titles are playable. Seems to be fewer slowdowns at 50hz than 60. Seems to give a grainy appearance to a lot of games which the BC systems don't, but it's better than nothing.

    More obscure games have given me freezing/graphics corruption issues and you may run into issues with more graphically intensive games but all in all like I said it's better than nothing.

    If i had to say, it depends on the game, on the + side, is upscaled to 720P, but mostly the games downloaded from PSN are working and functional. Don't expect anything amazing. But it works for some games, not all. (How expensive was that ps2 hardware software to reproduce in ps3 anyway that it has some bugs?)

    I can't find the video/image but there was one well known problem with final fantasy X-2. The characters have a system using dress spheres, during battle when you change, they are suppose to change their costume clothing. There should be sparkles and bright lights (CENSORSHIP) cause the character models is practically exposed (NUDE), playing the ps2 disc on ps3 doesn't show that special effect like it should on ps2 which is a example. Honestly, the PS2 Emulation or whatever wasn't designed for every game I guess. The ps2 games on psn has no problems, guess they just made each game work for is intended purpose (Kinda like Virtual console) Yet somehow PS1 games all work with NO ISSUE.
