The Xbox Series S/X Can Play More PS2 Games Than The PS5
Xbox has made backward compatibility an important feature on its next-gen Series X and Series S video game consoles, but I doubt the company designed for the systems to be used to play PlayStation 2 games on them.
YouTuber Modern Vintage Gamer said there is a workaround in the Series X|S’s Developer Mode lets users boot a lot of emulators, including ones that support PS2, Dreamcast, GameCube, and Wii games.
Modern Vintage Gamer, who did some tests on an Xbox Series S, continued to demo a mixture of older games running off the RetroArch emulator, which includes God of War, Metal Gear Solid 2, Silent Hill 2, and a lot more.
It is not official, it certainly looks like that the Xbox Series X|S can play more PS2 games than the PS5, which only supports backward compatibility for PS4 games and only some of the PS3 games through PS Now.
if you want to know more check out Modern Vintage Gamer’s YouTube channel for a full rundown on their tests with the Xbox Series S Developer Mode. Although he has checked on an Xbox Series S, they said the Xbox Series X should be on par, though not significantly better than the Series S, so both consoles are good at playing old PS2 games.
