I really don't think developers would limit themselves to supporting physX when havok is supported by so many more customers.

Just my 2 cents..
Havok is and will continue to be writen in x86 language to run on x86 based type hardware. PhysX was and will continue to be writen to run on PPU type hardware. As the GPU is more like a PPU than a CPU ever will be, I wouldn't look for Havok to more than a niche thing in the future where as PhysX more likely will be mainstream.
