Oh thank god Sony has /some/ damn sense left afterall. I guess this technically doesn't say we'll get it too, but it's a good sign.
Also cheaper in Japan now, but we'll have to wait and see if that is the same in the US.
Edit: Unfortunately, no price drop for the US.
But given how Japan's at the mercy of retailers for pricing of the premium system, I guess it evens out. Oh, and it's confirmed we get HDMI on both too.
