Technically, there are other PS2 emulators, but this is the only one worth noting (of the three that I know, at least two (PS2Emu and Emution) never got out of alpha and have no homepage whatsoever, while the third, Neutrino SX2, has been dead for about 8 years, and also has no homepage anymore).

This is the one emu that slowly showed us that PlayStation emulation was truly possible... It does also have very high system requirements, though.
