It's always the Japanese that get the bonus tracks on albums? You never see a Canadian bonus track (don't be a wise guy and find one now... I'm sure it's happened somewhere but it's usually Japanese)?

so desperate americans and canadians and europeans spend more money trying to buy them for the bonus tracks.

Why do Japan get video games way before us? and then Americans get it, and then Europe gets it, but improved?

Because, that's just how it is.

TS, it's because fanboys like this one ^ love anything the Japanese produce, so they've been able to make better stuff because they have more money

#7
I noticed that too.
It pissed me off!
Especially because I really wanted the song...
I don't know why they do that.

I'll torrent the albums with the Japanese track but it sucks for those who buy the album legit.

Just another reason to download instead of buy.

Yes, I do

Torrents FTW... but I had the same thought... and why make it a bonus track... why not just say its part of the album?

Because the bonus japanese track is usually a regular album track, but played backwards.

The Japanese dont know.

'Bonus tracks' are to encourage people to buy the release from the native record company rather than getting them cheaper on import.

Like in the UK supermarkets sell the European version of CDs, which is why they can charge £8 while in HMV it's the UK version which will probably have a bonus track or two and cost £12

Albums over there are more expensive so the artists add a bit of extra incentive to buy it.

Wasn't The Serpentine Offering by Dimmu Borgir a U.S. bonus track?

Ironically, they can almost understand the words that way.

And so is paying $0.99 for a song instead of $10,000 for downloading.

I was told it's because the Japanese have to pay more for CDs, especially if they have been imprted from America/Europe.

I know, torrenting so difficult with limewire, especially on a mac! Transmission is the way to go when it comes to opening files from thepiratebay.org
