First 11 NXE3300 for R&D? Then what was NXE3100 all about? Heard from tsmc those were pretty ridiculous to move in as well.

Gigaphoton is also a DUV laser supplier, so it is possibly doubly screwed by ASML this way. it is too tempting to put Cymer lasers in all its tools. I don't know if any customer would insist on Gigaphoton. But this is still a desperation move by ASML related to EUV. However, it does offer some strategic supply chain benefits for its current DUV market. Still, the cost of 2.5-2.6 billion USD is significant.

The alternative suppliers Ushio and Gigaphoton are probably a little disheartened, since ASML can't buy from them anymore, as it would make their Cymer investment look pretty stupid.
