I'm not sure why, Adam...but I strolled through the CD section tonight at our local Best Buy (Adam & I are neighbors) and it was even more embarrassingly empty than the DVD/Blu section. I'm spending a lot more time (anytime I'm in Crossgates) at FYE looking for bargains.
FYE is really hit and miss, in my experience; I've gotten some really great deals there from time to time, particularly for TV on DVD, but its day-to-day pricing tends to be significantly higher. I don't know if you go to the Target where Northway Mall is, or if you just stick with the one across the river, but when they moved their media section to the back of the store, the selection there really took a hit as well. Downloads and streaming must be really taking a bite out of the market to the point where it's just not profitable to use up a lot of floor space on some entertainment.
