Try using it! I had the same idea - I dont see why not, The PS2 has a RISC style processor, so I assume that ARM will work too.
:lol:

And to add to it, The Pi hardware is way better than the PS2.
Maybe someone could port the PS2 OS to the Pi so it would become a dedicated gaming machine ;)

I guess it is not possible. It is very heavy task for Raspberry Pi. For example - in case of x86 emulation, Raspberry Pi is able to emulate only i386DX/25 Mhz, due to emulation of CPU, sound card, graphics card, etc. For example, i386/25Mhz is not able run DOOM II smoothly.

The OS wouldn't be open source. Unfortunately that puts this idea to a complete halt.

Yes, the fact that the OS is not open source is the thing that makes this project unfeasible.
