Rumoured Windows 8 pricing revealed


The Verge reports from their sources that the final pricing of Windows 8 has been revealed. It is somewhat complex, so I will lay it out as clearly as possible.

Existing Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 users will be able to upgrade via a download at $39.99 to Windows 8 Pro.

Buying the upgrade at retail on DVD will cost $69.99

Clean install  Windows 8 Pro will cost $69.99 until the 31st January 2013.

The software will then revert to $199.

Stores will also sell a Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro upgrade for $69.99 for until January 31st.

After January 31st the same upgrade will cost $99.00

Both the Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro and Windows 8 Pro copies will be made available from retailers on October 26th.
