Beware buying this at a cheap price and getting an OEM version.
on 24 July 2013
BEWARE: I found what looked like a cheaper price for this product £30 but I was sent a cut down OEM version, even though the seller never mentioned OEM (just flat packed) with the same description suite 12 version.
It seems to be short the second CD for the suite, so although it has "suite" on the cover it's more like the cheaper non-suite version!
Partly this is Sony's fault for not making any mention of an OEM version in their comparison page.
but I've read once you install it, you'll be asked to upgrade to the full version!
"To add to above, I just found this 'upgrade option' in My Account / My Software
(even though I have registered the MSPS 12 "full")
Upgrade MSPS OEM to MSPS Full
Upgrade Movie Studio Platinum 12 Suite OEM edition to the full retail version of Movie Studio Platinum 12 Suite. Includes NewBlueFX 3D Titling and Video Effects, 50 Production Music Soundtracks, Vocal Eraser plug-in, Pixelcast Plus Account - 1 Year, Red Giant Magic Bullet Quick Looks, Movie Studio Platinum Suite Tutorials, and 1,001 Sound Effects. Sound Forge Audio Studio 10 and DVD A Studio 5 seem to be in the OEM."
I just want to warn people so they don't fall into the same trap.
