    Update (2x): Reports are coming in this PS2 Homebrew is also working on PS3 HAN & PS4 (5.05).
    With progress making headway on the upcoming PS4 port of RetroArch from a group of developer's, Another developer (fjtrujy) started progress on a PlayStation 2 (PS2) port several months back (view previous progress) and now has a port that progressed enough for a public soft release, Now available in the new RetroArch PS2 Nighties for anyone interested in downloading and trying out the multi-system emulator on your homebrew capable PS2 hardware. @fjtrujy warns that many things need implemented yet and many pending issue remain and only these early release contains two cores currently 2048 and QuickNES. Which is likely to grow and a good gauge to base what is expected for the PS2 port, Would be to view the PSP as that should be a good baseline of what to expect and the PS2 may be able to handy more then the PSP likely.

    UPDATE: This PS2 Homebrew looks like its not just going to be for the PS2, but also there has been multiple confirmed reports of this working with the PlayStation 3 as a PS2 Classic pkg, while RetroArch was born on the PS3, There is a number of console's LateSlim & SuperSlim models that have no way to install CFW and thus can not enjoy Homebrew like RetroArch PS3, However while the PS3Xploit HAN exploit does not allow for PS3 Homebrew it does unlock the internal PS2 emulator within the PS3 firmware and some PS2 emulators/homebrew can run on those non-CFW compatabile consoles and the great news from early reports is that this PS2 Port is working on those PS3 HAN Console's. So this is a project that PS3 HAN user's may want to pay attention to closely as well. Report 1 / Report 2 Update 2 (@Markus95 ) has confirmed and shown a video of RetroArch PS2 running on the PS4 (homebrew capable console (Report)


    • RetroArch PS2 (Preview) - 2 Libretro Cores included in Soft Release

      A lot of functionality still pending to be implemented, for sure a thousand of issues, but today I have pleasure to announce that #RetroArch for #PS2 has been integrated in the nightly releases with 2 cores (QuickNes and 2048)

      QuickNES libretro core / RetroArch frontend running on the PS2!!

    • This PS2 Port is working on PS3 HAN Console, we will update this section with notes and details as we learn more.
      • Roms have to be copied to the memory card for retroarch to load them. - via @leo82309
