Because it's included in preorders. So it's to reward preorder people (I'm using what I'm sure is their terms, rather than "try to push people into preordering,") and it makes no sense to give it to people that already have it.
Really, it's to force preordering. My guess it's in the box for all first shipments, so the first 5 million or so people buying new get this, and really only used customers don't.
