Just buy the amazon PS3 dual shock 3 for $40 in an assortment of colors. A wired controller is not even original equipment for a PS3 and is just some cut rate off brand controller that you want to try to adapt to an old PS2 controller.

Yes, the USB PS2 to PS3 Controller Converter Adapter Cable can be purchased in white.

It should sinc if you push the PS button, but if not you can plug the controller into the playstation with the charger and then try againIf the controller is being connected for the for the first time and is not an official Sony ps3 controller and it is a ps3 compatible controller, connect the controller with a USB cable to the ps3, then under settings> device settings> register new device. This is how it works for Wired and Wireless headsets for the ps3 too.This sectional guide answer was modified by TechnoFixunder 'Modified for a wider understanding'.

The PS3 controller does not work on the PS2 console
The controller for the PS3 is different because it senses the movement of the controller and the PS2 controller does not.
If it's a wireless controller you should be able to use it on a ps3, as you plug a USB thing into both. If it's a wired controller, no you cant use it.
Not a Dual Shock 3 PS3 controller
If you go to Gamestop.com go to ps3 accsesories and you sholud see a ps2 to ps3 converter where you can plug a ps2 controller into a ps3's usb port on the front they are listed for $15.
No it is not possible to hook up a PS2 controller to a PS3 without an converter. The PS3 was never designed to use PS2 controllers, and even with a converter the controller will not feature all of the functions of the PS3 controller. It may be possible to rig a PS2 controller to work without a bulky converter, but you would have to build it yourself.
Yes, there is an adapter that lets you use the controller for the PS2 with a PS3, it cost around $6.99.
it is called the ps2 controller not ps3 so not that i know you can do that
THis question is a little out there but ummm u can use ps2 controller to play ps2 game and ur ps3 controller to play ps3 games and if u get a high enough giga bite ps3 u can play ps2 GAMES on ps3
PS2 do not play PS3 games and if your PS2 controller is being used on a PS3 then you are not using normal PS3 equipment. Sony support and my sources do not have information on using some unknown controller that might be able to work on a PS3 read your manual that came with the controller. Better yet buy the better Dual Shock 3 PS3 controller
