Are folks really complaining about the upgrade price?

I've seen a bit of this on Facebook.

Instead of the usual $169, the upgrade to 7 is cheaper at $129.

Not to mention there are Rack Extensions that cost more than this!

So, MIDI out, audio quantize, channel grouping, spectrum analyzer, etc for $129...YES PLEASE!!!

For real. Plus, this is clearly to compete with Ableton 9's release, so I can totally see them releasing a 7.1 later on with enhancements like maybe I dunno... a better browser.. just a guess.

Still though it's pretty reasonable and the updates look tight.

I am amazed at the amount of complaining and demanding to do with reason 7 and hasn't even been beta tested yet.
Leaves a sour taste in my mouth and somewhat disappointed in the community.

General Forum and Feature Suggestion should just be shut down from the time they announce something until it's released.

The last upgrade was $169.00 for the ability to pay for rack extensions. And now that they have added some new coding to the actual software another hefty upgrade price. This version should be free to 6.5 owners. As 6.5 didn't provide us much but a path to purchase external add-ons to Reason.

I have to agree with this comment. We had a free (PWYW) upgrade not too long ago, and you don't get much free these days. You definitely can't expect to get great software for free forever. Plus, the price really isn't bad for what you're getting. PH have pretty much given us all the things we've been complaining about the most. IT's impossible to say whether or not they're overcharging because we have no idea abouth their costs. For all we know they might just be staying afloat! :-) There's only 3 options:

1. PH are ripping us off and charging more than they need to.
2. PH are paying their developers fairly and charging us accordingly
3. PH are charging to low and absorbing the cost / underpaying the developers

The way I see it, you can either give PH the benefit of the doubt or not but if you don't think the upgrade's worth the price, what's the point in complaining about it?
