PS3 to work with Microsoft Xbox 360 and Vice Versa?

Some shocking news about PS3 coming from Tetsuhiko Yasuda, Sony Computer Entertainment Asia’s corporate executive managing director and senior vice president of Asia.
Sony Computer Entertainment Asia’s corporate executive managing director and senior vice
president of Asia, Sony expects to ship over 100 million PS3 game consoles and might work with Microsoft on video games that will play on both machines.
This is quite interesting, if Yasuda's comments are true.
Yasuda stated that Sony has not finalized the specific time frame for the PS3 launch, or the pricing. However, the company aims to launch the PS3 at the same time throughout Asia, but was unclear on when North America would see a launch date.
"Sony does not regard Xbox as a competitor. Rather, the company may even consider working with Microsoft to develop games together"
, Yasuda said.
Why on earth would Sony want to migrate with Xbox 360 games and vice versa?
It shouldn't seem to be a good move for Sony, unless they want to make Xbox 360 games compatible with the PS3. It just doesn't make sense...
Wow ain't that some sh!t eh?
As you see the deal would go both ways it seems......so it'd probably be a better deal for microsoft wit the cheaper system and all....
