Uh, actually, what the courts said is Microsoft is the only player that *can't* lock anybody off their platform. (They really should have donated more to the Clinton 92 campaign.)
Sony, Nintendo, Blackberry, loads of others can and do lock out anybody they care to. Sony, for one, can (and has) locked out apps they explicitly invited onto their platform. Amazon and B&N do it too. Any number can play the lockout game except the Microsofties.
