Music - what music?
I haven't bought any music for a couple of years. I was given a double CD recently - now in slots 9 & 10 in the Car changer, but buy - no.
Why - because nothing decent has been done.
The given CD - that was a friends band.
I will admit to liking NWOBHM and similar rock from that period. But why rebuy what you have?
As to films - 2 in the last year. Why only 2?
DVD doesn't look as good as BluRay, BluRay is still too expensive, but made an exception for Clint, last night though just ordered a few Pixars in a sale. But since the BluRays exists I will not purchase the DVD.
What have I downloaded - recently nothing, prior to that couple of rips of HD-DVDs which were of films I wanted to buy but wasn't getting the DVD, and I already had a BluRay player - which also happens to be good at streaming, this time I wanted to be on the winning side after Beta and Minidisc.
What have I bought?
Games, the value behind a good game at £37 is to be honest worth the money, a poor game is not worth £5. When I see online times of around 8 days, and single player around 20 hours, I think I have found my moneys worth. Then all three of my children have played as well.
If the production companies want my money provide the following
Music I want to buy at sensible prices (definately under £10)
BluRays at sensible prices - not £20
Games with good replay value, and are not poor ports from other formats (I am looking at you Ubisoft), if Naughty Dog can make a great playing and stunning looking game so can other companies. I have already decided not to buy a game from a British software house because it is a very poor port, low resolution and frame dropping is unacceptable now.
