are both reporting that the lower end configuration of the PLAYSTATION 3 will be getting a price drop (about $70) and an HDMI port. For now I would assume that if true that these changes only apply to the versions that are being released in Japan but you never know. Hopefully tomorrow brings word of something similar going on with the versions that will be hitting US store shelves on November 17th.
Update: It's official
, the Japanese will get a 20% price cut on the lower version. More details as they arise.
