Adobe to Discontinue Boxed Sales of Creative Suite (CS6) Software...
Adobe has just now confirmed what’s been going around as a rumor – that they will soon discontinue
selling all boxed versions of Creative Suite 6 software…
Here it is direct from the company themselves:
Now there’s been some confusion about this, so we’ll try to make it
clearer: This news does not mean Adobe will stop selling any of the CS
products, only that you will no longer be able to buy them in the form of a
shrinkwrapped box, physically hand-delivered via mail, courier, or store.
Customers can continue to download their purchases instantly as most
already do, saving on both shipping costs and the environment.
Why is Adobe doing this? Besides not being green, boxed software is
static and costly to produce, manage, and deliver. In line with software
industry trends, Adobe is focusing more on the Creative Cloud – which
for an affordable membership rate, digitally delivers the entire Creative
Suite and more to your desktop, and is always up-to-date with the latest
Which products does this change affect? Boxes will be phased out for all
CS6 suites and individual products like Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign,
Dreamweaver, etc., as well as Acrobat Pro/Standard – both commercial
and education editions, on both Windows and Mac OS.
Does it apply to resellers and retailers as well? Yes – they will no longer carry boxes either.
When will this go into effect? Not definitive but word has it on May 1st, 2013.
After that point, can you still get a hardcopy of your Adobe purchase if you want? Yes – we expect Adobe to offer
a simple Creative Suite Backup Disc option (nominal cost) if you would also like a physical copy of what you’ve
ordered. This DVD would be delivered via the post without an elaborate box or packaging, and could be used to
install or reinstall the software as needed.
What happens if you don’t order the backup media – is there any way to back up or redownload the product?
Yes, you can make/burn a backup copy of the downloaded CS product yourself, plus Adobe will keep the original
software you ordered available in your online Adobe ID Account for three full years. With the Creative Cloud, you
can redownload or reinstall your software at any time.
How can you reinstall or move my CS programs to another computer if you don’t have a disc? Not a worry as your
product downloads will be available online as per the previous response.
Will many customers be affected by this? We don’t expect this shift to affect most customers because CD/DVD
drives are rapidly disappearing on newer computers, plus the majority of customers already buy via digital
download – either the Creative Suite or Creative Cloud.
