Are we getting Tile Skins instead of Backgrounds?

I'm confused, a few days ago, Tom revealed we can set background wallpapers which I am dying to have since W8 release in Oct 2012. But then he recently said that MS is doing Skinnery tiles instead.

Now don't get me wrong, Skinnery is awesome and it really makes my Start Screen amazing.

But, do you think we will get both? It would suck if they promised us background wallpapers, to just limit us again to customize tile skins. It would be amazing to have both though.

I hope King Tom is watching this somewhere so I can have some peace of mind. It's been bugging me~
