Link shows whats available in the step-up program.

EVGA maintains a list of current graphics cards as well as motherboards available to Step-Up to. Products listed are mostly stock (not factory overclocked, or water cooled) due to stock limitations.

Look a little further down you get this....

Graphics Cards

EVGA will only release reference versions of its products, NVIDIA reference spec and clock, to the Step-Up program.
Step-Up is limited to pre-approved graphics cards only and can only be used for exchange to a different and higher performing GPU.
Products known to have a limited availability will not be made available to the Step-Up program. (Limited availability determined by EVGA.)
Customers who received their EVGA graphics card as part of a complete computer system are not eligible - except for those listed on our approved system vendor list.

Graphics Cards Examples:

GTX 780 Ti → GTX 980: YES (Upgraded GPU)
GTX 960 2GB → GTX 960 4GB SuperSC ACX2.0+ 1GB: YES (Upgraded Memory)
GTX 970 FTW → GTX 970 FTW+ : YES (Upgraded Model)

Yes, but I doubt you can go from a 1070 to a 1080.

Ok, but the TI was released long after the 970. To go from a 1070 to a 1080 doesn't make any sense. You might as well just buy a 1080. The point of the Step-up program is for people who bought a card just before the release of a new card or someone who bought an old card and wants to trade it up to a newer card. If the 1080 had been the card to release later it would make more sense to see people step-up from 1070 to the 1080. Not this situation where the 1080 has a 2 week lead.

Some have exactly done that...bought a lower card and realized it didnt deliver the performance they thought it would based on the reviews...so they step up to a higher card to get the performance that they desire....so it is a upgrade...hence available

I'm aware of that, that's why I said that. But on EVGA's site they say the step-up is restricted based on limited supply which is at their discretion. So its very likely that if anyone wants to do a step-up from their 1070 to a 1080 will be unable to do so.

I really don't understand though.When 970 and 980 first appeared the prices were 350 and 500 only in euro instead of dollars,with a few slight variations upwards around 20-30 euro for the same model in Europe.What the hell changed this time around?

16nm? Market share? They have learned and can get away with it. MSRP is only there for reviews and first impressions.
