If the PS3, Nextbox, and PS4 use Blu-Ray...does that mean Sony gets more cash

Would MS be paying Sony to use Blu-Ray and making money off their games sales since they own Blu-Ray?

This could float all in the same boat as Sony paying Microsoft to put Windows 7/8 in their VAIO laptops.

Just because they are at competition in some slight section of their business practices that they don't work with each others in other forms.

Sony has patents (the most) in the concept design of a Blu-ray Disc, so yes. Sony makes a small profit off of every disc produced.
