Because the financial segment of our society with lots of disposable income bought them. Then sales dropped when they stopped selling at the first price, so they drop it down for the next financial segment of our society, and so on over the years. We see this happen with many products you can purchase from stores.

Its not EAware's fault you had the disposable income to buy it when it first came out, and couldn't wait a few months for a price drop, which inevitibley happens with many PC games, MMO or not.

These were not preorder items. The only preorder item i am aware of is the black and yellow crystal.

The crystal was pre order, the other items were always available with whichever edition you got.

The OP has come across an astounding revelation! Sometimes the prices of things go down over time.

Im pretty sure the only pre-order bonus was the crystal vendor. You can always buy the deluxe edition of the game.

This is an idiotic response. I agree with the OP. I spent a lot of money on the CE and was told at the time that these items would not be available to others. How can they justify the price tag if everything is up for grabs for next to nothing.

I'm not going to stop playing as it is an okay game that is fun to play occasionally but I will certainly not be purchasing bioware products with the same level of confidence and trust as I once did.
There is no try there is only ... huh (looks around) holy s**t he's shooting lightning.

Oh for the love of...

NOTHING exclusive to the CE can be bought in that pack - the yellow/black crystal. The collectors book. The Statue. Certain ingame items that can ONLY be acquired by Collectors Edition players... what you can BUY is an upgrade from STANDARD to DIGITAL DELUXE edition by paying a few extra bucks.

What you get is the speeder and a few prettyful items that you have been able to get for 14.99 for MONTHS now by buying the DDE

Overreacting, much? They pay 10 bucks for the regular edition, then 4 to 5 more for an upgrade. They pay the SAME now that you pay for the 14.99 DDE that you can buy online. The Collectors Edition and DDE were MORE expensive at launch - but shock and awe, that's what we call MARKETING
