Can't. It's like trying to run a Windows program on a Mac or reading Shakespeare (in English) in China. Totally different language, can't be read the same. PCs are a different story because you can modify PCs much more, thus there are emulators. Emulators are usually extremely weak or only play certain titles.

You can therorecticly run Windows on a Xbox though, because it literaly uses off the shelf computer componants. But you'd have to break the security measures. I've opend up mine it's just a Pentium 3, a normal standerd IDE Seagate hardrive with a modified Geforce 3 or something.

hmm, well that would also be cool to put windows on an xbox i might have to look into that later but the reason i put this in software and hardware is because i wonder how many things you need to change in the ps2 to make it work for xbox or probably a shorter answer would be what don't you need to change. :trumpet: :inlove: :cool: :woot: :huh: :cool: :thumbsup: :flowers:

Like Sion Sheevok said. It's totaly diffrent. The Xbox runs off a Celeron/Pentium 3 single core general processor. The PS2 runs on a 128bit, 300Mhz "Emotion Engine" that has multiple co-processors. I don't even think there is a universal PC emulator for it. Some of the games were coded very specificly for the PS2 hardware.

I really wouldn't even try it, as you'd be better off buying an Xbox and I'd say it's close to impossible to make the PS2 play Xbox games, hardware wise the PS2 isn't as powerful.
