Blizzard wants high tier items to be really scarce to keep the best items as expensive as possible. Look at the hasty nerfs to goblin farming, repair costs, etc. If everyone was getting awesome loot the prices would fall, and blizzard would make less money. Brilliant marketing and shitty for the player that want to just play and not use the AH.

At least with the 1.03 patch solo players have a chance at an item lvl. 63 piece in act 1 inferno, and it's pretty easy to get geared for act 1 inferno by doing hell act 3-4, but the system still rewards those who play the AH game the most.
