Only if you can repair the PS3. The files can only be accessed on a PS3 and if you plug the harddrive into another Playstation/PC you'll be forced to wipe it clean.

Sadly your saved files are gone, unless you can get your PS3 running long enough to save some of your data, Your PSN ID is safe and so are your trophies as long as you remember your E-mail and Password, but you will lose the trophies that haven't been synced due to PSN being down.
