CAN XBOX PLAY PS2 GAMES???

This discussion thread has 42 messages.

#1
hey i still haven't decided to get ps2 or xbox. but i am leaning towards a xbox because it has HD and i can run all the games from hardisk and also use it as a mp3 player and other stuff. i am still gonna miss tekkan and final fantasy ps2 games. but i am not gonna buy a console to play old games anyway. most new games come out on both consoles anyway with some exceptions. i heard my friend say that u can play ps2 games on xbox? is that true? i did see a thread saying that once a xbox is modded, u can run emulators in it. and if u can run emulators and maybe u can run ps2 emulators. i know pc has ps2 emulators. and since xbox is a pc, can it run ps2 games through emulators? would it run through emulators or directly? any help appreciated

ya I am wondering the same thing akuma!
Some one answer the man!

i dont actually know if you can but even if it is slow they will still be working on it. so if they can in a month or so it should be really good. xbox is more powerfull then ps2 so if they know how to emulate it then xbox should be able to handle it just like a ps2 would.

Yes it can what you need is to empty out your Xbox and take the case over to a PS2 and put the PS2 inside the Xbox case, do some cutting and viola! An Xbox that plays PS2 games.

alright here we go;

ive just made the damn account on this crappy forum (one of the many) too insure you, that the ppl wo wrote the shit before me are a bunch of ignorant fools. stupid idiots. ppl asking for emu's suck too, just search more. try google. your most inner friend.

for the icaru guy (or whatever) if you'r tired of posting answers, jump of a bridge do me a favour. try READING and UNDERSTANDING first. an modded Xbox can run LINUX. and you now what the biggest advantage of that is? YOU CAN PROGRAM IT FOOL. ps2 games can easily be run on an xbox, you just need brains, fingers and eyes. no modchip needed. softmod it. another stupid thing. everyone is buying an modchip 'cause it works! '

well f*ck them idiots too. SOFTMOD it you goddamn self. start a bussiness and stay cheap. all you need is a savepack, or usb to xbox connector cable. you can.

back to the story; there ARE ps2 emu's for pc. (open source) so, some fool wth brains ported that. run the linux (dvd open) and install it (or make bootrom)
no problem. anyone can do that. just stop making a fool out of yourself stfu and keep an eye open. just fucking google, emule it whatever you like



note: i just posted this cause the fools REALLY annoyed me like "noooo there will never be an working emu" when the emu was there BE-fucking-FORE the playstation 2 was sold.
shut up if you dont know nothing, and if you're sure you really do, STAND UP, and stay anonymous.

back at ya

Can someone delete this guys post.

Dude you need to chill.
#14
well,The Nymf you're right with the LINUX part,but youre wrong with the softmod part.
Softmod vs. Chipmod:
1.Softmod is difficult.
2.Softmod is unstable.
3.Softmod hasn't got Chipmod's abilities.
4.Softmod requires to get some things like mem card and shit which aren't worth it.

So to translate this into simpler language you're saying that ignorance is an intolerable offense but being an arrogant ass is fine as long as you have your facts straight. No wonder you don't like this forum.

Right, because whenever you show up somewhere and start attacking people out of the blue they must owe you a favor or 2.

It would have been nice if you had told us before what we're allowed to say in your forum - oh that's right it's not your forum.

No, you posted this because you're an arrogant jerk who has all the courage required to verbally abuse people from the other side of a computer monitor. I don't care what you know. We don't have any need for people who come here to be abusive to our members. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

I do know what im talking about, YOU dont.
1.YES you can install a ps2 emulator on your xbox via the PC method
2.YES you can softmod your xbox
3.NO you cant play ps2 games on your xbox

Q:But you just said you can install a ps2 emulator!
A:Yes you can, but there is a very good reason why a ps2 emulator has not been proted to XBOX format. The xbox is NO WAY powerfull enough to cope with a ps2 emulator
Q:But the xbox is more powerfull than the PS2 is it not?
A: Yes it is and to tell you why the xbox can never ever play PS2 games I would have to go into detail............so heres the detail

Every system has it's own unique and different hardware. And each system has it's own individual coding methods and SDKs. So obviously you can't just play a PS2 game on the XBox and so on. Because the coding is different and written for a different set of hardware.

What an emulator does is recreates the specific hardware for another system with software. And then that software runs on the hardware of the host system. So just imagine for a second. Two systems that are just about on par with each other as far as speed goes. The only way to get full speed would be to have the true hardware for the system. Software could never hope to emulate a system that is close to the same speed as the host hardware. For a good example, think of hardware rendering vs software rendering...which is faster? The hardware of course.

Another way to think of it is when you put a game in your PS2, the game just runs right off the hardware. If you were trying to emulate it on the XBox, first it would go into the software and have it's code and commands changed to the native language of the XBox, and then that new code would be run. And being that the systems are so closely matched in speed, the emulation would be very, very, very unplayably slow

XboxWizz Suspended due non-functional email address
Icar, can I ask you something, do you even know what an xbox is? Second thing, a pc can run ps2 games. Now to answer my own question. An xbox is a pc. Now from my own gaming experiances, it is possible to run an ps2 emulator on a softmodded box. Want proof? Come to my house and watch me play ps2. You really are an idiot.
Nymf - 100% RIGHT
You - 0% RIGHT

What's that, OMG A POOPY!

XboxWizz Suspended due non-functional email address
I'm sorry, it's just that so many people are wrong about this topic, I currently am playing finalk fantasy x on my xbox. Yes it only runs at 86 fps, but the ps2 runs 96-104 fps, not really a difference. The only thing that kills me is the loading. Takes a long time.

What's that, OMG A POOPY!
#22
XboxWizz you probably are TheNymf and you are
1.lying about playing ps2 games on your xbox
2.boring me

PROOF
well for a start you said you are playing FF10 on you xbox by booting an emulator from linux, OK.The best ps2 emulator for linux (as well as windows) is this one http://www.pcsx2.net/

And if you to there compatibilty list you get

Capcom Fighting Evolution USA shadow 0.8 beta works fine 1, 2, 3
Disgaea USA crushtest 0.7 almost fine. Few random problems 1, 2, 3
Marvel Vs Capcom 2 JAPAN shadow 0.8 beta works fine 1, 2, 3
Metal Slug 4 JAPAN shadow 0.8 beta works fine 1, 2, 3
Virtual Fighter 4 Evolution PAL crushtest 0.7 2d work okay. 3d doesn't display 1, 2, 3

As you can see no FF10.

I have a DREAM X xbox (an xbox with a 1.4ghz processor and 128mb DDR ram) And I can tell you now its NO WAY NEAR powerfull enough to run a ps2 emulator, I tried it myself. you need a PC with at a least 3ghz processor and 512mb ram, even that might not be enough. The problem is in the hardware not the software. If you want to belive this guy then put linux on your xbox and use that emulator that I linked to before, but I can gurantee it has NO CHANCE in working.

Well well.
what we have here?
a bunch of arguing kids?
lcarbutt (Senior Member)---> So there is absolutely no way to play a pstoo game in a modded xbox?
are you sure?
I woudn't be so sure if i were u.
got-a-word-4-U=====> [RECOMPILER]
know what is?
just wait until it will be good enough. (give it a few months)

also there is a preliminary beta made by xport .
Is not reliable and is hard to find.
its basicaly made for testing purposes has cdvd acces problems and its about as fast as pcsx 0.6 for windows.

and for god's sake dont jump into conclusions just by reading posts at forums...
typicaly a combination of p4 2ghz +256 mb ram dx9.0 VGA
shoud be more than enough to recompile a ps2 game to pc code at 60fps .
an xbox has celleron (p3) 733mhz 64 mb interlaved dx9.0 vga and -exept the windows 2000 kernel - actualy has no windows running on it. that means an 100% utillisation of the cpu by the emu and dircet hardware acces to graphics card (hardware) --[the emotion engine will yield to the power of directX[]
I assure you the two systems are almost equal in preformance.
thus - in time - you will be able to play ps2 games to your xbox...

ps just wait to see the speed of pcsx 0.8 (it will be out in a couple weeks)

ps2 ; the pcsx version ported to xbox is 0.6
its caled pcsxbox2 v0.1b

ps3 ; that will be the last post ever by me on this borum.

psxbox ; believe me - or not - it doesnt matter.

and one thing more...
bah! forget it.

I believe it can be done as well. Nothing's impossible. I'm trying to put the pieces together myself and see if I can make it work. I'm sure that with a little configuration and some sweat it can be done :)

xport told me it was not possible, I have not been able to contact him since you made this post but if anyone can do it he can. Dont get your hopes up to much, there are not any good ones for PCs yet, and xport always uses PC ones then ports them (hense the name xport)
Things we can agree on
1.Its not possible at the moment
2.XboxWizz was talking crap when he said he has already played final fantasy X
3. The xbox 2 will definatly be powerfull enough to play PS2 games and since thats coming out this year an emulator on xbox will be short lived indeed

ANYWAY for the time being its NOT possible,
case closed, and to be honest with you I canot ever see it being possible mainly because of the lack of power plus people will give up by the time a chip for xbox 2 comes out and there are no good PC ones.
