They've likely already made tons of profit already, so I guess they decided to give back.

The "limited" part come from the special box. Kodansha was careful not to say that the manga volumes themselves are limited editions, since the volumes will be the regular 420-yen ones. 420 yen times 30 volumes equals 12,600 yen.

At US prices, that be would very cheap for 30 volumes. Say Hajime no Ippo were sold a $10 a pop (not including tax). At that price, 30 volumes would cost $300, barring any discounts and whatnot. This set is priced at 1/3 of that.
