from what I gather, the differences are hex sounds and drawbars, 100 more pcm sounds vs 100 less pcm sounds and sampler (no hex and no drawbar)

I guess if they were combined the price would be much higher. Although they look similar the hardware is different. The XW-G1 is priced much higher than the XW-P1, it is $799 and it includes Flash Memory for storing samples. There is no way that a keyboard that had all features would be much under $1000 and that would change the market they are trying to target the $499 XW-P1 at.
