“Adobe announced today that it will offer users of its outdated Creative Suite versions 3 and 4 special upgrade pricing to move to version 6 (CS6), which is due out later this year. According to the company, “With the availability of Adobe CS6 solutions in 2012, Adobe will no longer offer upgrade pricing to customers who are on older versions of Creative Suite dating more than one version back. Customers on versions of Creative Suite CS4, CS3, CS2, and older will not be eligible for upgrade pricing for CS6 unless they have upgraded to CS5 or CS5.5 before CS6 is released. In other words, upgrade now, or be prepared to pay the full price for a license the next time around. ”
This offer will be available from the time CS6 is released this year 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.
