Ya I'm a Live 8 Suite owner and it says my upgrade to Live 9 Suite is $299.00!!!!!
That's fucking insane to me. I really hope we get a significant discount when it's released.
I've dropped ridiculous amounts of$$$$ w/ Ableton. Hoping they hook it up a little.
I'll have to upgrade regardless, but I'm a broke as DJ/Producer. A lil love and customer appreciation would be nice.
they have stated that already, it will be a disccount on release.
Mine seems to have showed up. it's $234 for Suite. Push remains $549 extra so it seems the best bet is to get the upgrade now and wait on Push, get it for $499 or less next summer.
Nah that's same as always, some weird upgrade price if you insist on paying more now. The mysterious special release upgrade pricing remains shrouded in mystery. If you really want to max out your spending you can buy m4L now too. It's almost as much as the upgrade to suite 9, which would indicate the Upgrade alone (Suite 9 upgrade quote minus m4L price) is about $40. That would indeed be a sensational upgrade price.
What a stupid idea this whole thing is, or certainly badly executed. If there's to be special release pricing for current users, don't show people who would qualify any price now. Or show them the special release price, but greyed out. Or something. But don't put up a link "See your prices" that shows a price that according to them is not the best achievable upgrade price and the disclaimer is on an entirely different page. Is that to trick me into buying anyway or what? And Upgraders to 8 get an early bird special discount, current users of 8 get the chance to pay more?
How can a company so consistently mess up something so elementary as pricing. Utter chaos. Every time.
