Today we announced some details of upgrade options for Windows 7 and general pricing details. Check out this video from Brad Brooks who is a Corporate Vice President in the Windows Consumer Marketing division.
I haven’t had any confirmations yet of local pricing in Australia as of yet but I will keep you informed as soon as I hear something.
We are getting close!
Would be great if we got the same pre-order discount the US got.
Having said that, my conspiracy theory is that the pre-order is meant to be limited, it will sell out quickly and MS will announce with the huge success of the Pre-order program, they have decided to make it pertinent or at least greatly extended!
Everything sounds great about the Windows 7 bar the price! Bring it down to $100 and I will probably upgrade my two Vista boxes!
Looks like you might have been scooped on the AU pricing.
If that is accurate then there will be a few justifiably upset people. The price difference between the AU and the US pricing is not a fair comparison IMHO - particularly the stepping between the upgrades and the full versions - the price difference steps in the different versions translate horribly.
Please tell me that the figures quoted are wrong.. please please.. :)
