Sony Drops A Bombshell, PS3 Pricedrop?

Sony announced a (I hate to say it) big blow to Microsoft at the Tokyo Game Show, the Japanese version of the neutered PS3 (you know the $500 one?) has had a big upgrade. Namely the big neutering factor, no HDMI has been resolved, also it got a price downgrade: ¥62,790 to ¥49,980 yen, in dollars that's $538 to $428. Now this upgrade change is only for Japan it has yet to be seen if the same will happen over here in the US, if it does the Xbox 360 will now have some good competition. With the 360 and the PS3 priced basically the same, the PS3 is looking a lot more attractive you know in two years when you can find one...
