Is it possible that people do not have as much money to spend on the multitude of digital/ analogue products as before? My case..... I have three children, three games consoles and a computer. The pressure to buy games etc is enormous so I have to budget the funds. At the moment it seems my children get better value from games than CDs especially PC games. My children do not seem to have developed the taste for music, as I did at their age. What I am trying to say is that there is the same amount of money going around, as before, but more products competing for the same money. Also music is rubbish these days and we don't even watch MTV because of this.
