Because Programming Drivers and Software for 64 Bit is slightly harder than what the majority of the world already uses.
(Kinda similar) To add to that, theres really no incentive to do mass reasearch and development on 64 Bit Software and OS's at the current time because the masses aren't ready. ( I.e not enough profit would be made at this time)
Developing the Hardware is alot easier than developing the software to run on it.
Which is why Hardware is so far ahead of what Can run on it.
