PCSX2 is an open source project so anyone can join the PCSX2 team or fork the PCSX2 project if they want to contribute. This also means you are not charged for using the emulator and the GPL guarantees that you won't ever be. You are encouraged to donate some money to the developers so they will be motivated to continue their work (click the ''make a donation'' button on the bottom of the front page of [http://www.pcsx2.net the official site]).

Obtaining PS2 games can be as easy as buying PS2 DVDs off eBay. However, an original game DVD is not enough to make PCSX2 work. You'll also need the BIOS dumped from your PS2. The PS2 BIOS is copyrighted by Sony so ''getting it from anywhere but your own PS2 is '''illegal'''''. You will have to own an actual PS2 console to dump the BIOS from before you can start playing PS2 games on the emulator. There is no region locking so if you have a PAL BIOS on your PS2 you can still play NTSC games, and vice versa.
