Adobe offers upgrade path to Creative Suite CS6 for owners of CS3 and CS4

by James Cook on January 11, 2012

In a stunning about face, Adobe has announced (see http://www.adobe.com/products/creativesuite/faq/upgrade-policy.html) that owners of Creative Suite CS4 and CS5 will be offered upgrade pricing for the purchase of Creative Suite CS6 through the end of the year.The following is from a message to User Group Managers and Adobe Community professionals:

With these great new releases coming in the first half of 2012, we want to make sure our customers have plenty of time to discover which offering is best for them.  Therefore, we’re pleased to announce that we will offer special introductory upgrade pricing on Creative Suite 6 to our customers who own CS3 or CS4.  This offer will be available from the time CS6 is released until December 31, 2012. More details on this offer, as well as any introductory offers for existing customers to move to Creative Cloud membership, will be announced when CS6 and Creative Cloud are released later this year.

This is an OFFER -- NOT a promotion.

The "Introductory upgrade offer" will be available to shrink wrap boxed software, and licensing.  The offer will be applicable to all Routes to Market, regardless of IF Creative Cloud is offered.  This is specifically for CS6 perpetual upgrades.

Unfortunately no pricing information is included with the announcement so there is no way for customers who upgraded to CS5.5 based upon the previously announced policy to know if they saved or lost money. In addition, the "upgrade policy" link on the page currently directs you to an explanation of the old policy.

I'll follow up with additional details as they become available.
