Simplified Upgrade Pricing Begins March 16, 2010

Autodesk is introducing a new, streamlined upgrade pricing model on March 16, 2010. Under our current upgrade pricing model, the price of your upgrade depends on which product release you own. After March 15, 2010, your upgrade from any of the three previous software releases will cost 50 percent of the price of a new license, no matter which release you own.

For a limited time Autodesk will provide discounted pricing on eligible* upgrades, cross-grades, and retroactive Subscription fees from the Autodesk® 3ds Max® 9, 2008, and 2009 releases.

The Autodesk Upgrade and Retirement Program promotion is a multiphase program for customers using the three previous software releases who want to move to the latest Autodesk software release. 

The following is an outline of the promotional offer:

 Phase  Promo Dates  With Autodesk Subscription Without Autodesk Subscription
(Upgradeable Products Only)
 Phase 1  Offer expired July 17, 2009  30% off SRP  20% off SRP
 Phase 2  July 18-October 16, 2009  20% off SRP  15% off SRP
 Phase 3  October 17-January 15, 2010  10% off SRP  N/A

*The eligible product list and pricing may vary by location. Please go to www.autodesk.com/upgrade or contact your Autodesk Authorized Reseller for more information.

Hi, Shane

So I want to clarify to be sure I understand. Prior to this new pricing scheme, the cost to upgrade from Max 2009 to 2010 without subscription was $800, and after this new scheme it will be $1750 (not taking into account the temporary promotion)?

Oops, I meant $800, not 0.

Ok, this thins screwing up my comments. I guess you can't type a dollar sign and the numbers without it changinig them for some reason.

I mean to say current upgrade cost is 800 dollars, and new cost will be 1750.
