Why is Vegas 7 cheaper than when Vegas 6 debuted?

^$100 for Vegas 6.

https://www.sonymediasoftware.com/sh...cid=111&disp=1
^ I believe it's $235 upgrade. So that's $335 for Vegas 7+ DVD Arch 4.

The full version is $400:

i distinctly remember Vegas 6+DVDA3 as being $700+ when it first debuted. what's Sony trying to do to this package? I mean it's all good news... but... but what? i dunno. conjecture?

Sony sales/marketing has realized that while Vegas+DVD has had a list price of $699, the actual street price has been below $500 for over a year. So now they are adjusting the pricing model to better reflect the real world.

As a dealer, I know that I'll sell more of a product at under $500 than I will over. It's a price point model that applies very well in our marketplace.

As for the actual street price of Vegas 7+DVD, how about $399.95 (after rebate) and a FREE copy of Cinescore!! Check out our website for more info http://www.videoguys.com/vegasvideo.html

My Pentium 4 was MUCH cheaper than my 386.

A bit faster too!

NO not for free .. you get to pay 139 ( or is it 149??) extra at sony ..

from Video guys site ..
V7/DVDa4 with cinescore = 399
doing a upgrade to V7/DVDa4 price with cinescore = 375

I must say that the theme packs @ sony.com are what is currently tempting me..... Do you have any experience using the music provided with the "weddings" theme?

Okay, I am still a bit confused, I must be having a dense week.

I have 6, and want to upgrade to 7 before the offer runs out at the end of this month. That is 149, right?

So how much does cinescore end up costing me with the extra themes?
