This would put them in a similar scenario to the Xbox One.
I'm guessing it's likely bull, but I'm seeing if I can get anyone that I know really well at E3 with any of the big publishers to clarify that for me, since I figured it will be a point of interest.
Publishers being dicks is different than Sony/MS being dicks. Sony left it to publishers so that they can be the ones to slit their own throats or not but the likelihood that no publisher would be stupid enough to do that on a console where competition for shelf space is pretty damn fierce.
