But I WOULD pay for a single cd for your average cost of $5.
So I guess the question is........ How many of me are there, compared to those that would pay for a download at half the cost?
And as for your 10 year theory on cd-singles. JB-Hifi which is Aust biggest music store, dont stock singles anymore, so I'd say it's more like 2 years from now.
Yep, JB dropping singles was a massive hit. I think sales for CD single sales in Australia have gone from about 12.5 million in 2000 to 35,000 or so last year, so their future is shortlived. It's nearly impossible to find them in stores here, I mainly have to buy mine from eBay/online stores.
