Actually, it is to bring the amount of credits that are flying around VMK. I mean, with people using the Quest kiosk to buy items in the 100K+ range, it makes sense why the items now are going up in prices.
Thing is, this is hurting the newer players, what few there are that are new. I would like to see VMK actually do something about how credits are distributed rather than see them try to do a quick fix by releasing high-priced items that are only available for a month.
This hurts to the big spenders like me who buy 5 of everything and has to gain it all back for the next item. v.v
