Apple Pro apps sold as bundle only

Apple Final Cut Studio

If you haven’t heard, Apple’s Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Soundtrack, and Motion will no longer be sold as individual products. If you want one, you’ll need to shell out $1299 for the entire Final Cut Studio Suite.

In all fairness to Apple, the $1299 price tag is significantly less then buying all the apps individually. But it still sucks if you only wanted Motion (formerly $299).

This article over at AppleInsider says Apple will be offering owners of current copies of Final Cut Pro or DVD Studio Pro an upgrade price of $199, for the entire $1299 suite. That’s a great deal… if you own current versions of the software.

I bought DVD Studio Pro 3 about a year and a half ago directly from Apple. If the AppleInsider article is correct, then I don’t qualify for the upgrade price. If the only way I can upgrade my DVD Studio Pro is to drop $1299 on the full suite, I am going to be very pissed off! Are you listening Apple? Please don’t leaving me hanging with no way to upgrade after only a year and a half!
