    • RetroArch has been ported to the PlayStation2 by @fjtrujy, and starting as of version 1.7.6 you can already try it on your own homebrew-enabled PS2!

      A couple of (libretro) cores have been included as part of this initial release:
      • 2048
      • FCEUmm (NES / Disk System emulator)
      • QuickNES (NES emulator)
      • Picodrive (Mega Drive/Genesis/Master System/32x emulator)

      Note: To run Picodrive and FCEUmm at fullspeed, you need to set Vsync to off. QuickNES will be fullspeed with vsync on.
