I'm trying to hook up my PS2 to my MacBook, is there any way I can get the signal from my PS2 (RCA) to my macbook via USB or any other device? Will a USB capture card do this?

I have a late 2008 MacBook if that helps.

A TV tuner with RCA inputs would work. If it has hardware compression, make sure to turn it off, otherwise the picture will be severely delayed. Even with compression off (EyeTV calls it "Game Mode"), you may still suffer a tiny bit of delay (talking a fraction of a second) but most games should still be playable.
