    Yes and from whatever region you bought the game unless it has an option to play with people of a certain region.

    It depends on the game and its something you have to research for each one individually. Killzone 2 does not have region locked servers for instance, while Demons Souls has separate American/Asian servers that you play on depending on which copy you have.

    BC2 has worldwide servers I'm sure; I've played with my fair share of American folks on my 360 and I'm in the UK.

    The current DLC is VIP stuff, but the Dr. Pepper codes are region locked to the US.

    I went on EA chat and found out for you. Convo is below.

    EARepAustin: Hi, my name is EARepAustin. How may I help you?
    : Hi, I'm asking a question for a friend about importing Bad Company 2 on PS3
    : He says that he has a VIP code for the game, and he's in Australia. If he imports from Asia, or anywhere else, will that VIP code (AUS) work with any region apart from Australia, ie NTSC regions?
    EARepAustin: Please be online
    EARepAustin: I need to ask to my supervisor.
    : OK.
    EARepAustin: Do you wish to purchase VIP code?
    : No
    EARepAustin: Please tell me the exact issue that you are having ?
    : he has an Australian VIP code for Bad Company 2, PS3. He doesn't have the game. If he imports the game from Asia, or anywhere else, will this VIP code work?
    EARepAustin: Yes
    EARepAustin: The code will work
    EARepAustin: If the code is un used
    EARepAustin: And not if the code not redeem under any account.
    EARepAustin: Then it will work.
    EARepAustin: Is there anything further I may assist you with today?
    : OK...that's all, thanks!
    EARepAustin: You're most welcome
    EARepAustin: Is there anything else you would like to know?
    : No that's all, thanks for your time

    I got 20% off at EA Stores too off that guy! EA chat=awesome.
