I wonder if that will still be exclusive or if they could support another format.

Paramount is still supporting HD-DVD...

...until they don't.

No lies or contradictions here. This spokesperson is simply stating what we all know as being the present case.

This article in no way goes against the very credible word of Financial Times.

Legally, Paramount/Dreamworks have to be exclusive. Exclusivity was paid for by the HD-DVD group, so they're under contract. When their contract runs out (I believe it's an 18 month contract), I wouldn't be surprised if they jumped ship.

Can't speak for Universal, they just seem to have always been supporters. I would assume they're under some kind of contract with the HD-DVD camp as well.

That comment really speaks something. It's all up in the air now. But it's quite obvious what the answer is.
