Will an international 3D blu ray disc work on a U.S. PS3/PS4/XB1?

There is a listing on eBay for the Saw limited edition movie collection on blu ray that includes the 3D version of Saw 7. The listing says it's region free (apparently manufactured in the Netherlands), but the seller says he does not know whether or not the 3D version will work on a U.S. blu ray player.

I'll be playing these on a PS3 (and eventually a PS4/XBox One) so can anyone confirm if the discs (including the 3D version) will work?

Did a little research, and it seems the Dutch Filmworks Saw blu-rays have the region ABC logo on the back, but for some reason Saw 7 3D doesn't have any region coding symbol on the rear case. So I can't be certain that it is region free or not, but since the other 6 are region free, most likely the 7th is.

Well, since Blu-ray 3D does not have a 50hz specification, the 3D version will have to be 24p, so it should technically be compatible (you won't have to worry about it being 1080i/50), as long as it's isn't region coded...
