When playing the game Ratchet: Deadlocked, a PS2 game on my PS3 console, the game lags and performance is choppy at best. According to Sony's web site, this is a known issue with the 80GB consoles, but they give no solution to help it run at normal speeds. Is there anything that can be done to correct this issue? It seems to only be this one PS2 game............(of course the one i want to play)
Unfortunately some PS2 games will not run at their best on the newer PS3's. Make sure your PS3 has the latest updates installed, as some of the more recent updates have fixed some known issues with PS2 games. Otherwise, you'll have to wait until they release an update that fixes your problem, if they ever do.

ps2 games are ment to be only played at ps2 and ps3 games are only ment to be played at ps3.
even though you might think that ps3 is a higher version of ps2 so ps3 should play the old games but its not like that.
when a ps2 game is developed, it is made to only run on a ps2 platform and nothing else. its programed in such a way, that is why it will not run in a ps3 platform. its the same thing l;ike you cannot play a XBOX360 game on a ps3 platform cause the game company has made it not to run on other consoles. hope it solves your problem.
Some models can, the 60 GB model can play all PS2 games, the 80 GB can play pretty much all PS2 games, the lower end ones (I think the 20 and 40 GB can not play PS2 games). There is a rumor however that ALL PS3's will soon be able to play PS2 games with a software update.. that will not be available until a few months into the future, if ever.
Your best bet on getting this fixed is to go to Gamestop store and get a DVD cleaning disc kit. This in many cases will work to clean the lens of the laser without opening the PS3 and voiding the warranty. Follow the instructions on the kit in detail to get best results. If you have no luck there and are not comfortable opening the PS3, the playstation Clinic can help. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
