All I found was old threads of people telling how it's not possible to do, not even on the most powerful phone back in the day - Galaxy S.
Ok maybe not GS, but how about quad core Tegra 3/Exynos 4? I hope there already is one. I know FPSe emulates PS1, but I just found Tomb Raider Legend and since I have no console anymore, sold it, and PC is not as exciting next to my Nexus 7, I was thinking, why not N7?

Hardcore PC? Maybe in '05 it was considered "hardcore" in reality you can run it flawlessly on a dual core, as long as the GPU is adequate. Smart phones are a different story, but I expect with a Tegra 3 or alternative it would be possible to emulate a less intensive game at a feasible frame rate.

Technically speaking, he's right when he says a medium range pc should run it finefine (FYI, the ps2 version dropped to ~20FPS at times)... If it's native to the PC. However, it's running through an emulator, and that requires more power (I'm not going into the details, you can find enough info around the Internet, e.g. the pcsx2 forums).

    Are you serious? Ps2 emulation needs a hardcore pc.. NO phone has so much power like a pc...
