Although Blu-ray and DVD games are not region-locked on PS3/PS4 consoles, however, the PS4/PS3 Blu-ray player is region-locked for multimedia content such as Blu-ray or DVD disc. It the region code on DVD disc is different from the region code setting on your PS4/PS3, you will fail to open your Blu-ray or DVD disc on PS4/PS3.

DVD region codes are a digital rights management technique created to enable motion picture studios to control the worldwide release of their movies, including content, release date and price, based upon the region. To be specific, discs without region codes will play on any player, irrespective of the country. But for the region-locked DVDs, they are unplayable on the DVD player sold in other regions.
