Why would they put this in the C-Store for $10 or $20?

Just curious about the thinking there...
Just as a math adjustment:

At $20 a piece, Atari isn't seeing any money off those sold boxed copies unless you buy them from the Atari store or consider retailers ordering more copies to replace them.

Someone who gets five successful referrals also gets 2000 Cryptic points, a $25 value.

So, in theory, it might be worth putting it up for $50 to calm people down, if it would work, because that amount wouldn't conflict too heavily with the existing model and would retain RAF as the preferred way to go given the other bonuses. But do you think a $50 C-Store option (4000 Cryptic Points) would make things better or worse?
