If you were going to use a disc in a computer, it would have to be compatible. A disc programmed for a games console is not the same thing.

What will happen if a computer game is played in a PlayStation 3?

A computer game can not be played in a PS3. Once I put a disc in a PS3 for a DVD that the Copy did not work and it got stuck in my PS3.It was a little trouble getting it out because the eject didn't work. Once I got the disc out everything was fine. I just had to unplug the PS3. But that's worse case and a result of when I did not listen when it said it was unreadable and tried again. It was not a computer game, but the same thing happens if you try to play any unreadable disc. The PS3 tells you it is unreadable and you eject it.
