Yes it was designed to be able to. The PS3 can Play the game, but unless your PS3 is properly connected to a 1080P HDTV you will not get 1080P. You can not get a 1080p game on a 480i TV or on a 1080 p HDTV if the connection A/V cable is the one that came with the PS3 and not HDMI or component cables

You need a 1080P HDTV and the cable to Play blue-ray in 1080P with your PS3.

Other cables were not included with your PS3 because they could not know what TV the PS3 would be connected to and they provided one that would allow the PS3 to function until you purchased the correct cable for 720P and 1080P HDTVs
