PCSX2 is an open-source emulator using a combination of MIPS CPU Interpreters, Recompilers and a Virtual Machine through plugins to manage hardware states and PS2 system memory. It has been running for more than 10 years and can run over 2000 titles with many at full speed. 64-bit versions are being developed and tested, please check here.
