Only if it's region free. If it's locked to that region then no. If you want Japanese Blu-rays, they are the same region as America for an example. So basically depends on the region the disc was made in and if the disc happens to be region free or not.

If the disc says 'A' then yes it will play it. (also if the disc is "all regions".)

Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Korea share the same region code as the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Unless you bought a European, Australian, or UK PS3 which is Region B, you will be fine.

It says 'A' so yes. It can be "A,B,C" or 'A,' or even 'A.B'

As long as the A is there you can play it on a US systems.
