I think differently

Wait for final firmware for JPEGs and RAW converters to be updated. I've seen a RAW sample at 6400, looks pretty decent, not worse than D7k's.

Sony would not make the mistake of producing a worse sensor for their flagship SLT model. Theory/practice show more/less pixels are not the relevant issue, technology is, and Sony know how to make a good sensor.

Besides, Nikon will probably use 14bit ADC and make it slightly better, as they did with D7k's sensor. Actually, I hope they use this sensor in the D400.

Wow those samples look horrible. I can't even believe Sony would release a DSLR with such horrid IQ. Noise at ISO 100 is already strong and blurs out tons of detail in water and skies. Nikon hates playing the megapixel race with Canon and I will be quite surprised and disappointed if they use that sensor in the D400 as it will be a step back from low light performance in the D300S, not even the D7000....
