When they can simply re-release their entire back-catalogue in the new format (i.e. no recording/promotion costs: the only overheads being the costs of re-mastering) and then effectively force the general public to re-purchase the music they already own as the infrastructure supporting the old format gradually vanishes? In fact they loved it so much that they tried the same thing again with SuperCD, DAT and MD... We're going to see the whole thing happen again with HD-DVD and/or BlueRay over the next few years!
