DamonPS2 is basically a pirated version of PCSX2 for Android. https://pcsx2.net/286-the-pcsx2-team-s-statement-regarding-the-damonps2-emulator.html --LilShootDawg (talk) 01:05, 21 July 2019 (EDT)

Here are some Chinese responses, they stated that DamonPS2 did not plagiarize, so PCSX2 failed to launch DMCA to DamonPS2 on Google Play Store.

Oops, didn't realize this was on the talk page. I've removed DamonPS2 from the page. PCSX2 did launch a DMCA claim through Google Play and they counter DMCA'd. As per DMCA guidelines their app was re-instated and the next step was left for PCSX2 and that would be to sue. PCSX2 doesn't take donations and has zero funds to do such thing. PCSX2 is left at the mercy of android users _not_ to use said app and instead support legitimate developers such as jpd002 (Play! emulator). Not to mention the reports of questionable actions performed by their app.

Can't say I'm overall thrilled about the re-adding of DamonPS2 however I appreciate the new description. :thumbsup:
