Adobe caused quite an uproar a while ago when it said that all customers who use CS3, CS4 or older version of Creative Suite, will not be eligible for any upgrade offers for CS6 upgrade and that they will first have to upgrade to CS 5 or CS 5.5 to be eligible for upgrade offer. This angered a lot of users as it seems very unfair. In a recent statement, Adobe has announced that those users who are currently using CS3 or CS4 will be able to upgrade to CS6 through special upgrade offer.
This is a really good piece of news for CS3 and CS4 users. Now they will be able to avail the special upgrade offer for CS6. Adobe posted on it’s official website, “We’re pleased to announce that we will offer special introductory upgrade pricing on Creative Suite 6 to customers who own CS3 or CS4. This offer will be available from the time CS6 is released 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.”
Although this means that CS3 and CS4 users will have limited time to avail the opportunity, it will be enough time for someone to make the switch is he wants to. The exact details of the offer, as Adobe states, will be told once CS6 is released.
