FWIW, some co-workers of mine attended a sony-sponsored training specifically for the 4K XBRs. The Sony trainers also told them the sets were native 120Hz, and they had some sort of explanation which didn't make much sense to anybody.
every website that sells the W802 also seems to indicate that its 120Hz native evrn though its XR480. Not really sure what's up with that, and why they'd choose to equip a flagship TV with a low refresh rate if that's true.
Since Sony has started using the convoluted XR ratings, i recall they also had a separate space buried in their specs page dedicated to native refresh rates for each model, which seems absent on 2013 model pages.
