Yes it is!And very confusing,as well as being inconsistent and not making much sense?It certainly confused me Not hard to do i hear you say!!!!
BF's pricing strategies probably take a number of factors into account
1. The costs of producing the 2 series.
2. The quantities they expect to sell at the different prices and working out what price/quantity enable them to generate the most revenue. Time is probably also a factor as they would want to recover their costs and break even as soon as possible.
3. They will also be looking at the customer base and making choices about what the market can bear. Maybe B7 fans are more likely to be older with more disposable income than TW fans? B7 is arguably more of a niche product than TW and can be priced higher accordingly. By this I mean that there is probably a significant number of B7 fans who are just B7 fans and aren't that into other franchises or audio drama based on other franchises*, whereas I would imagine the equivalent % of TW fans who are not fans of other franchises is smaller, which means that B7 audios do not face as much competition as TW and hence can be priced less competitively.
4. After the initial pricing, future pricing will be determined by how well they are selling, how much stock they hold etc.
It goes without saying that this is of course all speculative.
Wow! Those covers look amazing Much better than the individuals for Crossfire, if only because there's some interesting details in the backgrounds. The stories also sound great - it seems like we're going to have a much tighter ongoing story-line this series, with each episode contributing to the overall arc and less standalone ones (some of which were good in Crossfire, but some which definitely weren't...). I've been re-watching the series lately and we're up to Series 4, so I'm in the mood for some new audio episodes
Also, they're bring Avalon back again? She must have been very popular in The Way Ahead.
Absolutely enjoyed this set of Stories and how well they fit into the tv chronology.Especially the saga of the Liberator and the potential to remeet the Liberators Creators once more.Looking forward to the next set of stories and as for the cover of the Cd one of the best yet.Sad that we will have no more Servalan but Hugh Fraser is always warmly welcomed.
What with finances being what they are, I'll be purchasing this on 28th January. If I'm honest, I have to say I found Crossfire a little dull, but I have hopes this Liberator-centric collection will be more to my tastes.
