Yep, it leads to more support then it was nothing more than a prototype for Comet Lake design (Proving the updated hardware mitigations). Just waiting a couple of months you get pretty much the same thing for less $$$$ with an updated platform. It was meant to keep Intel in the spotlight in the light of expected Ryzen 9 3950X which is still MIA.

For the things that Intel does best (5.0 GHz boost speeds for the world's best lightly-threaded performance), Ryzen 9 3950X isn't likely to be much more impressive than other Ryzen 3000-series processors, but since reviewers will undoubtedly test AMD's 16-core/32-thread processor using some of those lightly-threaded applications, the 8-core/16-thread Core i9-9900KS emergency edition processor will allow Intel to claim a few benchmark wins in the Ryzen 9 3950X reviews that will come out in two weeks. That seems like a very sound marketing ploy.

Otherwise, someone would be saying "Hey, you could buy a $328 65 watt Ryzen 7 3700X with its included Wraith Prism instead of that $614 150+ watt Core i9-9900KS plus a $90 aftermarket CPU cooler and then you'd have hundreds of dollars available to spend on a better graphics card."

Heck, if gaming is all you're after you could lop off an additional $128 and get a R5 3600, and give up maybe 4 FPS to the 3700X and possibly 7 to the 3950X.
