I agree they need to make money, as dragonbird said. And yes it may entice some to purchase the missing pieces. I do believe that the fact they make all their E-Store stuff unable to be kinzposted really hampers their sales, though. I think that many who do buy the missing pieces likely won't buy them for multiple accounts, it's just not worth doing...only for the primary decorating/stadium playing accounts. I don't buy there simply because I don't have the freedom to move my purchases between different accounts. Then there are those that trade through various places. If these things could be shipped, I think Ganz would be much more likely to see the increase in their sales. Of course, there are those that prefer the items can't be sold or sent by mistake. I understand that. But it's really no different than having the PSI for a plush or E-Store pet sold at the W-Shop or shipped off the account. The Signature pets alone cost more than much you'll see for any item at the E-Store.

It's clever because we can't complain, they are giving us two free clothing items, and I'm sure it will convince a lot of people to buy the missing third item.
I got the mostly-complete outfit for my accounts at the news site. It still wasn't enough to entice me to buy a non-sendable item from the E-Store. I'll just find a suitable clothing item to replace the missing piece.
