Playstation 2 Mod – Play SNES Games on the PS2!

For the record, I have tried this and it worked perfectly. Here is the lowdown:

If you have Swap magic, or some other kind of Playstation 2 mod, did you know you can play SNES roms on the Playstation 2? Yes, it can be done.

This is what you need to do.
Go to the official homepage of SNES station here.
There you can find the SNES station program. Download it and extract it if need be. From here, you need to get SNES roms. Go to your favorite rom site to find some SNES roms. I like to go to romnation.net

Once you have some roms, put them in a rom folder, and proceed to burn the SNES data files along with your ROM folder. Now boot the SNES disc with your swap magic, and you are good to go!

What I did actually was I searched demonoid.com torrents for a copy of SNES station, as this one guy has already made SNES station disc, with over 500 SNES roms. It is missing a few games, like some of the metroid games, but hell man, that saves you time downloading all those games. Did I mention all of this fits on a 700 MB disc? Yup. The only caveat to SNES station is that some games don’t work at all, or it skips or runs very slow. Well, its just an emulator, but games like Super Mario World 1 flys!

I found a youtube video that should show you what its like to use SNES station on your PS2. Yes, you can play SNES roms on your fat or slim ps2, just make sure you have the proper tools and mods.
