DobieStation is an experimental open-source PS2 emulator which aims to be easy-to-use, fast, and accurate on PC while also providing an optimized Android port. A large portion of the PS2's library can boot or get to menus and some can even go in-game, but it isn't recommended for general use yet. 


That said, it also requires a copy of the PS2 BIOS.
