They will be able to play it but they will run into issues with receiving any content such as pre-order bonuses. Also, if they register a US version of the game they will need to register it on a US account or else they will be unable to purchase points or any additional content.

The way the PSN works is that if you have a US disc version of a game and are playing on say a UK account then you will be unable to make any ingame purchases on the UK account. As this is a digital code then your friend will need to make an account associated with the country the code is from in order to redeem it and will have to play on the US account if they wish to make use of any points or packs that are included or they decide to purchase.
