If the blu-ray storage format wins out there, who cares? Microsoft can come along with a more powerful console than the PS3 in the future and then use BD-ROMs as the disc type. As the BD-ROM will play current DVDs, they can easily support backwards compatibility with the 360 if the rest of whatever their future hardware is would support it. I would say that the PS3 helped enable a win for Blu-ray itself, not the PS3 as a whole especially if we are talking about a game console as there is much much more to a console than what type of storage it uses.
