80GB PlayStation 3s to be discontinued in Japan on August 9?


According to the above notice from 7-Eleven, Sony is requesting that all 80GB PS3s in Japan be pulled along with any and all displays. Pre-orders for all trims of the 80GB PS3 will stop on August 9 at 10AM local time. So that leaves the 160GB PS3 as the only SKU in Japan. Does this mean that the PS3 Slim is really on the way?
