I imagine a big part of it is publisher relations... they (3rd party pubs) will favor consoles with strong DRM vs. consoles without it, so unfortunately I can see it happening. I'm assuming that Sony is going the same way, I think a move like that will be from both or neither.

One thing odd about that latest NextBox rumor was the mention of an 8-core AMD CPU. Earlier rumors were that it would still be a Power architecture designed to spec by IBM & then licensed to manufacture by other fabrication companies. AMD's experience is primarily in x86, so not sure where this is going.
