Best Answer

The Sony PlayStation entertainment system lacks a DVD drive, so no, DVDs cannot be played, regardless of their region code. However, if you possess a PlayStation 2 or PlayStation 3 designed to NTSC U/C (United States/Canada) games, it will be capable of playing back Region 1 DVDs. These models typically have a model number ending in 1 (eg. SCPH-50001).

well, i recently got 2 region 1 dvds (im from aus) and both worked on my 2009 model PS3 and yet they both said region 1 on the cover. BUT, it doesnt mean that some dvds still wont work on it. Really, it just depends on the dvd. Some companies make region free dvds and put on the front/back cover a certain region. Try it anyway. I hope i helped! :)
