Re: my playstation modle is from japan can i play us...

If your playstation is chipped (modified) for playing fake (copy) games then only it is possible to play US games on japanese console suuppose if it is not chipped you can't play US games on it and you have to play only japanese games and that also originals.

I bought a game inported from japan but when i played, it wont let me due to a region pattern , and i dont kno what that mean

Hello there,
Video games, just like DVD, have regional restrictions placed on them. If you buy a game from Europe, you will only be able to play them on consoles designed to work in Europe. This is the same for Japan, America, Australia, etc. Unfortunately, there is no legal way for you to be able to play a Japanese bought game on an American system or vica versa.
Here is some more information on "Regional Lockout."
I hope this helps. Thumbs up if you think so!

Can i use PS3 europe in the philippine, that have different region and system

Yes, the PS3's region doesn't matter since PS3 games and Blu-Ray movies are REGION-FREE meaning they can be played on any system from any country. I, for one, am a PS3 owner from the Philippines. My system is from Japan but I have and can play games from US, Europe, and Asia. You can even run imported games such as Japan exclusive games and play them with no problem.

About playstation3 cd

No unless they have it already as a language that you can play it as. Other than that, if the game is not programmed with English already in, then the best thing you can do is get a dictionary or someone who can read japanese.

The games are made for different region formats, so what works in Japan doesn't always translate (hardware-wise) that it will in the North America.
