Could this be a prelude to the release of the PS4 everyone seems to think is already in production. Interesting considering the timing.

Probably more the case that it's been 2 years since the slim where the HD doubled instead of a price drop. The threat of the Wii U might also be a factor and the driving force behind the price drop to keep sales moving.

Ideal time for a price drop really, some huge releases coming out over the next few months and then it's christmas time. Should see a pretty big sales boost from it.
