The publisher uses the money to finance his marketing, the manufacturing process, the physical distribution, and so on.

Since the advent of computers there have been no changes about that except for the lightning speed today’s processors run at. On the other hand, you have an additional full-blown processor that sites on the graphics adapter. This machine is doing the graphics-related stuff and it is solely optimized for that purpose. So finally the idea of specialization made its way into the hardware architecture of computers and their graphics adapters. The challenge today is not to optimize every single detail at the lowest level you can reach.

However, you will always find other modern engines at roughly the same cost. They are just less famous. Also, real-world modelers would ask you as project manager for other, more expensive software than 3D Studio. Tools such as Maya or XSI are what modelers like to work with and if you want to buy them, including all the fancy add-on tools and plugins, you would at least double the cost for a license.
