    That's an awesome question actually. From what I have seen... no. Too bad eh? I hope someday someone smarter than myself figures out how to make that happen though... that would be thah sh*t!

    List of homebrew emulators - WiiBrew

    No PS2 one as yet according to that list.

    humm I guess somebody , somthing for some reasons could make a port of a PC PS2 emulator...but its quite a long shot , has the most capable ps2 emulator for PC is PCSX2 , and its not all that perfect. Its truly getting along, but im gonna have to say the same thing has above...Not now...but be on the lookout!
    you never know

    It's not really feasable for a PS2 emulator for the Wii. General rule of Emulation is for proper\decent emulation the target machine should be at least\around 4 times faster than the machine it's trying to emulate and the Wii isn't even twice as robust as a PS2 let alone 4 times. Maybe the Wii2 will be able to emulate the PS2 but the Wii2 is still a while down the road.

    are you serious the wii is more than 2 times as powerful as the ps2 the wii is 2 or 3 times more powerful than the Gamecube and that was almost Twice as powerful as the ps2 so the wii basically is about 4 times more powerful than the ps2

    The general "rule" among independent developers is that an emulator needs to run on a machine that's 10 times more powerful than what it's emulating. The wii is not nearly 10 times as powerful, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone tries to do it and runs a PS2 iso at a few FPS. I've seen emulators run on devices that were only a 3 or 4 times more powerful, but usually the GPU architecture is similar in those cases and I don't think the Wii graphics card is anything close to what Sony did with the PS2. Even the PS3 doesn't have "real" PS2 emulation, it's basically hardware supported emulation, just as the Wii plays gamecube games. I do think Sony is working on a true PS2 emulator for the PS3 with a firmware update, but even for them that is hard.
