That's what makes me a bit dubious about this, there isn't much of an up side for Microsoft here other than favor with publishers.
MS loves having more control over every market they are in. See win 8 for only the most recent example.
As well, I'm sure they have the view that having activation and tying would increase sales since it would eliminate used sales (they get crazier with every version of windows with activation).

This is one of those things neither Microsoft or Sony can really do first. They either both do it or neither do it.

Odds on both doing it?
If one does, they both will I'm sure.
Like some time ago all the big hdd companies reducing warranties to 1 year from 3, all within a few weeks of one another. You can't tell me that was a coincidence.
