Playstation 2 Launch Event

Celebrating PS2 and 10 Years of RetroAchievements!

In what will be our last big console launch for the foreseeable future, as well as our biggest launch ever (75+ games when the previous high was 30). The Events Team is having a simple contest to jump into the library.

Earn 5 PS2 Masteries = Earn a Bronze Badge
Earn 10 PS2 Masteries = Earn a Silver Badge
Earn 15 PS2 Masteries = Earn a Gold Badge

This ends at the end of the year. The full list of PS2 sets can be found here.
