Ok they decide "lets not piss off our CE customers and reuse the items X/Y"
All agree OK!
Marketer says " well, we need SOMETHING to entice repurchase, new preorders"
Marketer says, "lets give them exclusive halos instead of wings"
"lets give them different color dye"
So they go that route, do you know what would be said instead?
CE/PC Users " WTF THEY GET THAT COOL STUFF?? WHERE IS OURS??? WE BETA TESTED FOR THEM!!"
Do you really think they took the wrong route by giving what was already given, while not inherently affecting PC gamers due to no cross play??
