Default Why do Nintendo always sell the Steelbook seperate?

How do people feel about Nintendo always selling an empty steelbook with a plastic clamshell with the actual game in it?

Everytime I want the steelbook I end up with an empty steelbook and another case and it just sort of wastes space. Putting a barcode on a wrapper of the steelbook and placing the card inside the steelbook is surely better. Putting an empty steelbook in the package makes it seem like its just decoration or something.

This is good, I can have the steelbook and the normal case.

They tend to be pre-order bonuses but it's better than having an odd-one out game since it's in a different case format.

I'd prefer the card to be in the steelbook. At least I would use the steelbook. Currently mine are just gathering dust out of the way.

Why not just put the cartridge into the Steelbook and through the regular case away, if you would prefer it that way? Itís quite common regarding Games, that Steelbooks come on top of the regular case, IĎd guess because they are mostly only pre-order bonus items and itís easier to produce both items separately.

All are good answers, but it all comes down to costs. It's cheaper to sell it that way. That is why.

Don't see the problem because now you have an extra case.

I've never bought a steelbook videogame product from a non nintendo console that didn't have the disc enclosed in the steelbook as a complete package.

Imagine that happened for movies. I'd have 400 plus amaray cases going spare.

Iíve purchased a ton for other systems that have gone this route. This is not exclusive to Nintendo by any means.
