Portable Sound Format 2 (PSF2) is an audio format used for storing PlayStation 2 audio data based on the Portable Sound Format created by Neill Corlett.

Originally, PSF2 soundtracks were distributed as a single PSF2 file per song, however, this created a lot of redundant data. More recent PSF2 soundtracks are distributed in a set of .minipsf2 and .psf2lib files. All redundant data is stored together in a single .psf2lib file and data unique to each song is stored in the .minipsf2 files.
