WTF? Adobe Issues Non-Offer for CS3, CS4 Customers


Adobe has responded to a public clamor against its previously announced policy regarding users of its Creative Suites, CS3 and CS4, who want to upgrade to the soon-to-be-released CS6. Adobe said it is offering a “special upgrade offer” for such users, but did not disclose details.

“More details on this offer,” Adobe said, “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.”

Adobe seems to have not made up its mind yet on what to offer to their CS3 and CS4 customers.

From their FAQ: “To ensure customers have the opportunity to evaluate both Creative Cloud and CS6, Adobe will extend an introductory offer to CS3 and CS4 customers for special upgrade pricing on CS6 until December 31, 2012. This will give CS3 and CS4 customers an upgrade path to CS6 or the option of moving to Creative Cloud (which will include all of the CS6 products, creative services, Adobe Touch Apps, and more). Customers who remain on CS2 or earlier will not be eligible for upgrade pricing for CS6 but will be able to move to a Creative Cloud membership.”
