PS2 Emulation on Xbox Series X/S can be done through both Retroarch and the LRPS2 Core or through the standalone XBSX2.0 app. While both can provide an adequate way to play, the XBSX2.0 app is really the way to go for the system. For anyone still looking to use Retroarch for PS2 though, here is a setup guide for you to follow!
