PlayStation 3 & High Data Utilization When Idle

Have folks noticed their PS3 or other game console using a lot of data or otherwise behaving weirdly on the network when it was, as far as you knew, idle?

I powered on my PS3 to charge my phone, and about 24 hours later, this was a summary of its usage.  It was just sitting at the opening screen where game and movie promos roll by.  Not downloading any updates, etc.


I did some close monitoring for a few minutes this evening, and saw a few of the sites that were reached out to:

Has anyone analyzed PS3 network performance before?
Also, I got all this data from my new SOPHOS UTM Virtual Firewall – I love it!!  Hope to do a few posts just on it.
