The pricing is just off. For me, a previous Master Collection owner, it is right in line with the upgrade pricing for that on a yearly basis. I've been on the cloud for a year and for me the cost was fine. I upgraded every year, and this actually smoothed out the costs, and with the first year at $29m/mo it was still cheaper than upgrading every two years, and you stayed up to date and had a few extra features over the box set. They added Lightroom for example which wasn't in the master collection box. For me it was a easy choice.

But if you have the production bundle and only updated every other update, that first 2 years will cost $960 instead of maybe $400 for a single production bundle update.

I thought things were supposed to be cheaper when you signed a contract or opted for something like a subscription? But I guess not when the company takes away all other options.
