Because making them drastically cheaper would make them favored over retail. It's been confirmed multiple times that retailers have threatened to stop carrying physical games if the digital versions are too cheap...so...yeah. Hopefully in 5-10 years "high-speed" internet will be commonplace almost everything and we can ditch retailers taking a cut of games.

They should just have digital download codes at the retailers at the same price as the physical copies. I want to go digital, but not at that price and if it takes me going to the retailers and buying digital there, then so be it.
