They've already said what they needed to say about the pricing confusion. It's too bad people don't respect one another, or the company that provides cool software that people are obviously passionate about.
They haven't said what they need to say where
they need to say it. Put it on the actual site, instead of the weird "your best offer" prices, otherwise more and more people are just going to be confused and/or pissed off regardless of the forum announcement (as seen even in this thread).
And this goes well with the respect thing. I have ALMOST nothing but good things to say about Live. I've been a Live user for years. Out of all audio software packages out there, it's the one I've been using most in my whole life. I used it as a hobbyist and, version by version, transitioned to being a professional, using Live as my main environment all the while.
I respect Ableton and appreciate their software a lot. That's why it feels so stupid they are getting so much bad rep because of backfiring PR and marketing during this launch. The fact that I might have to pay 100-130 euros extra is secondary to the fact that their big launch is looking like they don't have their shit together, because of a marketing faux pas and some weird decisions with the site, not so much because of the actual software.
In time, this will all fade, though
... and the prices will be all right, like promised in the original post.
