You would have paid $400 had you bought the Cubase 6 and Cubase 7.5 when they each came out, so you get $100 for not having bought 6.
Point taken! (;
Imho, But why should I pay the price for a version I didn't even use?
The upgrade pricing is getting higher and higher and more complex w/ every .5 release and honestly there's not much to the .5 releases that constitutes shelling out $50 AND having to pay $50 for the .5 release if a user decides to bypass it.
But here's the scenario: Fellow Cubase 6 user doesn't see any need to purchase 6.5 BUT to get to 7.5 this poor soul has to pay $250. Where as the fellow Cubase 6.5 user pays $200 for the 7.5 upgrade because he already paid $50 for the 6.5 release. That poor Cubase 6 user still pays $50 for 6.5 features they don't need to get to 7.5.
It's like corporate puke marketing thugs saying you can pay us now or you can pay us later but either way you WILL PAY! ((:
