Doing it this way encourages people to buy NOW NOW NOW. No scrimping and saving, a lobi here and a lobi there, enough time to think and decide that maybe it would be a poor use of your money. If you even kinda sorta maybe want something in the store, you have have to do it NOW, and give them $200, before its gone. Its the same way as gambling or sales work, get people to short circuit their own good judgement by applying pressure. If people always used good judgement, lockboxes would never sell.

Or, for a less nefarious motive, now that all lockboxes have a minimum of 4 crystals in them instead of just 1, the existing costs are far too cheap and needed to be either multiplied or purged.
