Yes, but it simply depends on the games region codes as the PS3 (US) uses NTSC while the South African games may us PAL.

Is the South African ps3 compatible with USA bluray movies (including 3d) for viewing in South Africa


Hi, jfk1848!
Blu-ray games and blu-ray movies are mostly Region Free so you shouldn't have any problems. This may not apply to all products but generally you shouldn't have any issues.

Hope this helped you!

I bought a playstation 3 in South Africa and have moved to Australia and I can get any game or DVD to play on it that I have bought in Australia why?


I think you wanted to write that you CAN'T watch DVDs or play games bought in Australia on your PS3.
The reason is the region code of your playstation. It only can play Region Code 2 DVDs and games. In Australia you only can buy Region Code 4 media.
You need to buy your media from south africa or Europe. Some blueray-discs are region code free. You can check this on: http://www.blurayregioncodes.com/
As far as I know it's not possible at the moment to change the region code of the play station.

American PS3 in South Africa


Hey thomas952,

While they may not be region-coded, PS3 consoles and games sold within the United States are going to be NSTC compliant, instead of the PAL format used in the United Kingdom and South Africa. What this means is that in order for any game to display properly (or even operate) it must be purchased from the same region of the world as the console itself - NTSC games can only be played on NTSC consoles.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Playstation 2


if you bought your PS2 where you live then you have a region code problem ..Please make sure the Region Code of the software matches that of the North American PlayStation 2 system. Only discs (games and movies) coded with regions "1" or "All" will work on a North American PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system. Consumers residing in the United States or Canada must use a North American PlayStation 2 console in order to view "Region 1" content.

this is same for yours too..
