Oh I'm totally with you there, at least straight off the bat. However, I think I might delve into the books at a later stage, just for curiositys sake

It's just the first time I've seen somebody complain over it, that's all.
My issue is that this new edition came completely out of left field and so soon after 6th was released. I think the triple pack is a great idea and is quite good value, but i haven't budgeted to spend another £50 on hobby stuff this month.

Since they are printing separate books it would be nice to have the option to just grab the rules for now.

No, the starter boxes from 4e and 5e also included smaller compact rulebooks. Earlier editions might have as well but I started with 4th so that's as far as I know.

The drawback was having to buy the starter set, which not everybody wanted to do.

I would like to have the starter set book straight off of the bat... But I can't pay £60 anymore than I can pay £50 and all of the extras are kinda wasted...
I do love the triple set now... It means that only 2/3rds of the money is wasted, not 2/3rds of the weight is wasted...
Now I only have to bring a ~codex sized book in, which means it fits in my case so I don't need to walk around blue water holding a huge case and book! which makes it awkward to do anything with both hands taken up.
I'm not whinging about three books... I love it, it's just now there's the option to just get the stuff I want... The rules whereas before there wasn't, within reason
Even if seperatly it's £20 a book... Gw makes £10 more sold seperatly and I don't have to buy all the crap I don't need

Through temptation and horror
I have held to my faith
As a drowning man grasps at a rock
Judge me not by my weakness
Remember not my sins of late

I remember 3rd the only way to get the rules was I the big box. I think 2nd was the same. 1st (aka rogue trader) didn't have a big box.
