The fact that it wasn't fully explained, wasn't going to be present on day one and sounded exactly like a free lunch tells us that it was just an unconvincing attempt at a bait-and-switch. Remember that publisher pressure got Sony to change their 5 system activation limit down to just 2. I doubt if third party publishers were even consulted on this vapourware feature.
Anyone who took it at face value, assuming no enormous catch was in the works is a chump. Very convenient for them to defend its possibilities and for Microsoft that it will never now see the light of day.
