Universal Music Group is introducing three tiers of packaging in Europe, also including deluxe and sturdier versions of the standard case.

It expects the basic CDs to sell for about £7, the standard for about £10, and the deluxe – offering bonus CDs or DVDs – for around £14.

  1. I think that’s a pretty smart move on Universal’s part. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve considered purchasing older titles on CD only to back off at the last minute due to the $17 price tag. I would definitely get one of these “basic” versions though!
