You are forgetting a couple of important points here:
- In the moment that programmers are told they must code a ps2 partial emulator, the commerial people may not know yet if certain model will be launched in japan or not. A ps2 emulator is not done in a week!
- Sony firmware programmers are japanese, it is normal that they test lot of japanese games.
