Anyone know if the PS3 plays Japanese PS1 games?

Downloadable? Not with an American PSN account.

Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

I don't know if Japanese PS games work on PS3. Also only the fat ones (which they don't make anymore) only play older PS games. I think you need the 60/80gb. Still not sure if a japanese game will work though.

Is it a Japanese PS3? Then, yes!

Otherwise, for disc-based media, no. Only Bluray media is region-free, and even then there are a handful of blocked games, I believe.
