No, as nothing is forward compatible, though you could make millions if you could figure out a way to make ps3 controllers work for ps2, as well as ps3 games work for ps2's. Also, the ps3 controller is being updated to look a bit more like the ps2 one, as the lack of a rumble pack has gotten underneath of the skin of too many consumers. Also, the sixasis controller movement sensor seems to be more of a gimmick as it has yet to be successfully used in a hit game.

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.
