Not so fast………..
I was looking on the Sony Vegas forums yesterday, and there were posts about people selling their version 8 and buying the upgrade to version 9.
Apparently Sony does allow this (if you carefully follow their guidelines), but the person buying the “used” copy of version 8 will never be able to upgrade to version 9 (unless, of course, he buys a new copy of Vegas 9 at full price).
So check if you’re buying a “new” version 8 or a “used” version 8. Of course, for some people, just having a non-upgradable copy of Vegas would be a good thing if priced right.
