I would probably try to do it via port forwarding and not the DMZ. Problem is you need to find out what ports are required from the respective games.

Put in the IP address of the PS3. You can set it up so it always gives your PS3 the same ip address under network settings.

When you log in, click network settings. At the bottom it will list all the current DHCP clients. Find the PS3 in the list. Then up above that section there is a part where you can reserve an ip for a specific mac address. Click the drop down box and it will list all the current systems connected to the network. Choose the PS3 from the list and click the '<<' button. Then click save settings. From now on, the PS3 will always have the same ip address (probably 192.168.0.101 or something). Now you can use that ip address for the port forwarding.

Assign the static IP on your PS3. Way easier than changing network settings in the router.

From your first post it sounds like that what you originally did.

Since you already made a DHCP Reservation for your PS3, the next thing to do would be to go to the Port Forwarding section of the router configuration page and forward the corresponding COD4 ports to the IP of your PS3

The first thing you have to do is disable DMZ completey and just focus on assigning a DHCP reserved address for your PS3, that way the router will  always assign the PS3 the same IP Address. Once that is done, go to your router configuration page under Advanced>>Port Forwarding and open up ports for both Call of Duty 4 and NBA 2K9.

The ports for those games vary so please contact either Sony or the corresponding game manufacturers for any kind of port forwarding needed on the router for those particular games
