I assume you bought a PS2 game that works on your PS2 system but not on your PS3 system since a PS3 game will never work on a PS2.
Since not all PS3 systems can play PS2 games, you need to first check the model number of your PS3 system. If you look at the back of your PS3, there should be a serial number somewhere that starts with "CECH", followed by one more letter and a couple numbers (e.g. "CECHC02"). Unless the model number starts with "CECHA", "CECHB", "CECHC", or "CECHE", you won't be able to play PS2 games on your PS3.
If your PS3 can play PS2 games, then you need to make sure that the region of the PS2 game matches the region of your PS3. The region of the PS2 game can be found in the upper-right corner of the front of the box the game came in. The four regions are: "NTSC U/C", "NTSC J", "NTSC C", and "PAL".
Once you know the model number of the PS3 and the region of the PS2 game, you can tell if the PS2 game should work on the PS3. Use the following chart to determine if your game and system are compatible:
Last two digits of your PS3 model number: Playable PS2 game region 00: NTSC J 01: NTSC U/C 02: PAL 03: PAL 04: PAL 05: NTSC J 06: NTSC J 07: NTSC J 08: PAL 09: NTSC C 11: NTSC U/C 12: NTSC J
You can put in things such as a keyboard and mouse (to play games like you would on the PC), a USB headset, a multitap device (which lets you connect up to four controllers), a USB flash drive, and the EyeToy, just to name a few.
A web cam is not supported by PlayStation 2 only the eyetoy and that will only work with PS3. You can try to get a web cam to work on a ps2 after some home brewing but personally I would not suggest that. If you are using the eyetoy then I would suggest unplugging it from the PS2 shutting down the system and unplugging it. Wait about 2 mins reboot it and then plug the eyetoy back into the ps2
If your PS2 works fine with most
of the games and won’t play a few..Then you should try this trick to play them

It will take a bit more time to play game,but first i recommend you to clean your PS2 lens,watch this video.
I've got something else to add.......you can follow above steps to play DVD movies if your PS2 dont play any.....!!!
If you mean can you play PS2 games without a PS2 then yes, you can get an emulator which you can search for on google, please remember though that if you intend to play the games then make sure you own the game physically as this would be a breach of copyright.
Simple answer is no, the game obviously requires motion sensing to be able to play, just as singstar uses microphones to play, you can sometimes rent the eyetoy in some shops like choices and blockbuster but if not ebay is your best option for a cheap deal,
