Will an x-box need to run playstation games too?

Forbes magazine on today’s ruling by the French National Assembly on proprietary standards used in iPods:

«Apple pointed to recent progress in popularizing legal downloads, a trend which could be dashed if iPod users could freely load their mini-jukeboxes with interoperable music files. "Free movies for iPods should not be far behind in what will rapidly become a state-sponsored culture of piracy," the company warned.
[ . . . ]
The question on everyone's lips is what will Apple do if this "state-sponsored piracy" does become law. Will it comply, or withdraw from the French online music market altogether?»
