How to play PS2 games on Android using AetherSX2 Emulator.



In this modern economic business world, there is no time to play outdoor games but it is very important to play games as they give fun and regulate your mood to keep yourself relaxed and reduce work stress, thankfully due to latest technologies this decade we can play numerous category games from home itself using mobiles, PC, and especially Sony PlayStations are favourite choice of gamers.

Sony PlayStation series are most popular highest selling powerful and modern home game consoles released in year 2004 even though there are alot of other home video game consoles at that time like Nintendo yet Sony PlayStation gaming consoles has very advanced and futuristic features thus large percentage of gamers switched from Nintendo to Sony PlayStation aka PSP.

Before Sony PSP, we used to have low graphic basic videos games like Super Mario and Contra etc from companies like Nintendo and then Sony suddenly launched thier own gaming consoles named PlayStation PSP with spectacular graphic intensive games that not only amazed gamers but also changed the way people play video games.

However, Big market for home gaming consoles lasted till the launch of Apple iPhone in 2007 from then production and market for advanced smartphones picked up so eventually smartphones also started supporting high graphic games due to the inclusion of big battery, processor, ram, storage and many more.

Now a days, most people not showing much interest on home gaming consoles like Sony PSP or Nintendo unless they are hardcore games as smartphones become sole product to do almost anything in this digital technology era like playing games, browse internet, communicate etc.

Eventhough, companies like Sony and Nintendo etc already know the potential and market of smartphones yet they don't develop emulator apps to play video games on smartphones as if they do it will drop sells of products which can lead to huge losses even bankruptcy that's why playing video games on smartphones are not allowed by gaming console makers thus it's surely illegal.

Right now, there are no official mobile emulators from popular gaming consoles makers like Sony and Nintendo but thankfully we have numerous un-official to play video games on smartphones like PPSSPP Emulator, J2ME Loader,  Lemuroid, Citra 3DS Emulator, Nintendo Switch Emulator, Skyline Emulator etc.








Un-official emulators are usually open source and they are very hard to make as developers has to do alot of things in order to make emulator compatible with hardware and software of smartphone to run video games, which is why most emulators remain at early access phase for few years until they become stable.

Recently, we found an alpha phase early access emulator named AetherSX2 by using that you can play Sony PlayStation 2 aka PS2 games on smartphones, a year back if you're familiar with unofficial emulators then you may probably know it was only possible to play PSP games on smartphones using PPSSPP a open source emulator created by Henrik Rydgard in 2012.

But, Now you can play PS2 games on smartphones as well and yeah playing PS2, PS3, PS4 and PS5 games on smartphones is still not possible yet it's better to have something then nothing, anyway in future we may get unofficial emulators to play other PSP version games on smartphones for sure.

Here, you can see there is 10 years gap between PPSSPP and AetherSX2 Emulator, unfortunately there is no developer created a project to make PS2 emulator for smartphones thus it's very clear development of mobile emulators to play Sony PlayStation games is slow and rare.

Anyhow, We now have two unofficial emulators for smartphones to play PSP games on smartphones, while PPSSPP is stable but AetherSX2 is still in alpha stage which means development is in progress so you may find bugs or limited number of features but eventually AetherSX2 will fix all issues and release more exciting and interesting features in future.
