I think so.

I noticed that NYC import video game store used any Japanese video game console. They worked so well.

The JPN PS3 will work fine in the US. It cannot play North American ps1 games, DVDs, and region locked blurays though.

Except the US and Japan share BD regions. So, a Japanese PS3 can indeed play American region-locked Blu-rays.
