You can play ANY game from ANYwhere on ANY PS3.

Blu Ray Films are region locked..

Not sure if it's exactly as above said... MOST games should be region free and able to play anywhere in the world, but do remember hearing/reading about a game that wasn't region free, can't remember what it was though.
That said, I bought a few cheap-ish games here in the UK and sent them to my bro that lives in Oz, stuff like rainbow 6 vegas etc... because they still wanted around AU$80+ for them over there, whereas they were only around £5-£15 each over here. Bro was well pleased

360 games are not all region locked, it's up to the publisher - some are region locked, some aren't.

While there is no region locking for PS3 games, downloadable content is region locked - if you buy a US version of Rock Band you can't buy content for it from the UK store.
