I guess it all depends on how they define "new games." The press release 
is awfully short on details. Of course, if you stretch this to the 
extreme, that would also preclude any Linux dedicated servers which 
would not be in the UT200x series' best interest.

Hearing the words "Microsoft" and "exclusively" in the same sentence is 
always scary :)
