DamonPS2: New Playstation 2 (PS2) emulator for Android

It was released yesterday on Google Play and also on Youtube, the DamonPS2 Pro. The application is a Playstation 2 emulator for Android . This is not news, is not it, we have seen this before. The surprise here is that this is the most promising emulator yet . Coming to present playable moments in various games such as: Final Fantasy X, God of War II, Contra – Shattered Soldier and Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 .

Now comes the trick. To have at least acceptable performance, you need to have a Snapdragon 835 with Android 7.0 upgraded or something higher. In other words you need to have Android phones like: Samsung Galaxy S8, OnePlus 5, Moto Z2 Force, Xiaomi Mi6 and etc.

The result you can check here:

Despite all the propaganda made by the developer, it is possible to see that there is a high frameskip to keep the fps in the 45 frames. Still, this is just a glimpse of the future. Not ideal, but gives an idea that Android will emulate the PS2 from here two or three years ago.

Is DamonPS2 Pro inspired by PPSSPP?

I remember 2012 when PPSSPP came out and the crowd was furious saying that the emulator would never be able to emulate the games of Sony’s laptop with ease. Today, this is a frequent reality.

To speak the truth. Part of the success of DamonPS2 seems to come from the same PPSSPP project, as the emulator looks like a “PS2” version of PPSSPP. Having the same name as the application.

The DamonPS2 Pro costs $ 29.99 and is only available for Android for now.
