The name of the game
The Title ID
The version of the game
The firmware version required for its launch
The size of the game
If it is compatible external hard drives FAT
The version of the update
The firmware version required to launch update included
Size of the update
HellDoc's PS3 Game Manager 126.96.36.199 can also download the updates without going through the console. Future releases will improve, as we hope the FTP support of your games list.

It will work, when you mount a game it doesn't matter if it is on external or internal hdd, the game will see the update, you don't have to overwrite the files. I did that with my games and they all work.
And that's the only way to install a .pkg.
Or, if you are afraid to do that, do the in game update and then look the folder where it installed the files!
