Game update server? –
What's the update server for the games so I can block it since I keep get annoying prompts for updates while i am playing games and I don't want to disconnect my wifi, lol.
Each game connects to a different server. You could just disconnect the PS3 from the internet while still allowing it to access the network.

The update xml files that have the version and hash info (what you probably want to block) are on https://a0.ww.np.dl.playstation.net/ (note the https), and the actual update pkgs are on http://b0.ww.np.dl.playstation.net/
I've got the entire playstation.net blocked in dd-wrt and nothing else from there works, yet I still get prompts for game updates when first loading the game. Just tried blocking that https url as well and it still prompted me. Doesn't matter for most games as I have them fully patched so they don't get prompted but for any game where the latest patch will make the game require a firmware higher than 3.55 it gets annoying. The updates however can't actually be downloaded due to playstation.net being blocked but I'm curious what it is that actually allows them to tell that my game doesn't have the latest patch.
Edit 1: Nvm, apparently they way I was trying to block that url was wrong. That may be the correct one but I'll have to go about it a different way.
Edit 2: I just ended up blocking port 443 completely on the PS3 using iptables in dd-wrt. Seems to have taken care of the problem.
iptables -I FORWARD -s PS3IPHERE -p tcp --dport 443 -j DROP
