At an event held in San Fransisco, Adobe announced today that both the pricing and expected availability for the much-anticipated Creative Suite 6, a release that is expected to touch down on May 7th according to both B&H’s and Adobe’s pre-order plans.
Aside from a marginal bump in price for Production Premium to the tune of $200 additional dollars, thanks in part to the inclusion of Adobe’s new SpeedGrade and Prelude, most of the CS6 packages will retain the same prices as its C5.5 counterparts, with the Creative Suite 6 Master Collection still weighing in at $2,599.00. The complete price list for all the pre-order options can be viewed below.
While the aforementioned may not come as a surprise to many, today’s biggest revelation regarding Adobe’s launch of the Creative Cloud just might. Starting at $49.99 per month ($29.99 for students and teachers), the subscription based service is granting Creative Cloud users unlimited accessibility to all applications in the Creative Suite 6 Master Collection, 20GB of cloud storage, and the additions highlighted in the comparison chart below – an offer that should be incredibly appealing for those who plan on taking full advantage of Adobe’s myriad of applications.
As stated above, pre-orders have opened for the multitude packages with an expected delivery of all non-Creative Cloud purchases due on May 7th. Be sure to mull over all the options below, or take sneak peak at what to expect from Photoshop CS6 after the break:
