You must have an earlier licence if you buy the upgrade, but if you buy a full licence, that's ok. The price here on this site is the following:
R6.5 => €405 (your case)
R6.5 upgrade => €149 (for owners of previous versions)
In the end, if you buy a used 6.5 licence for something between €200 - €250, it will likely still be cheaper than buying Reason 5 and the upgrade.
