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.

No it is not possible to hook up a PS2 controller to a PS3 without an converter.

On ps2 controller which button to press to play ps3 games?

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
