I highly recommend that anyone who doesn’t own the CS6 master collection (or whatever you need from it), buy the perpetual/lifetime regular license now, so you Own the software for years ahead to use. Although they claim it’ll be on sale for a long time, I think adobe will very likely stop selling it soon as possible – so buy it now and get lifetime use of it ,before they’re all sold out.

I do find it insulting that in the uk we have to pay much higher Monthly charges than else where.

But over compared to the money i make each month of Creative suite, it not too bad a deal.

I don’t need CS6 neither unless my clients need it. I just stopped with CS5 and expecting few small ventures will replace major portion of Adobe in 3-4 years. :P May be CC is their last and final foolishness. i.e The problem I see is if they will really make major upgrades anymore?

I belive it will stay CS CC forever and they will just add few things like allways. If Adobe´s plan will work, everybody will just have CC. Not with me, Im buying the master collection, thats it!

but if you had bought CS6 it would be even cheaper unless you insist on upgrading every time they release a new version… seriously, it’s not a good deal at all.

The subscription going to have very good result in India and Asian region. Compare the pricing:

CS6 Master Collection: $3267
CS6 Subscription : $50/month

CS5 to CS6 Upgrade: $1320
CS5 to CS6 Subscription: $30/month (for 1 year)

Probably the subscription will reduce piracy here, since price slashed for new customers. But the only problem is if Adobe decides to halt major upgrades and manages to live only with minor useless upgrades.

The pricing is too high.

Should be more like 99.99 a year for all of it, then they’ll get want-to-be sign ups too.

I guess we can’t consider usage of any software for more than 3 years (without upgrades). This is where subscription is very flexible – especially for new users. But I am pretty sure Adobe has hidden plans like never investing engineering resources like before in the future. Minor touch-ups here and there and that’s all for a decade to cover.
