Mugen,

Welcome to MacOSX.com!

Well, I believe you can hook your game sytem up. But you'll have to get extra hardware. Look at www.elgato.com. The eyeTV 250 allows the PS2 or XBox signal to pass through to your computer and then to your monitor. They claim it will play back in real time.

It costs a cool $199. That's the only way I know of. Keep in mind your monitor accepts a digital video signal. Your PS2 or XBox outputs only analog video. (The XBox 360, on the other hand, does output digital video.)

Off topic a bit, but I actually have my PS2 hooked up to my $500 Sanyo projector. It's an excellent way to play, though it would be an even more expensive solution for you.
