    This is an interesting business strategy.

    Catch? Yep a big one. Once you stop paying your monthly subscription you lose access to the softwares, which you need to login once a month to validate. So basically you are renting PS at 50 bucks a month.

    Presumably you can still just buy it the conventional way?

    Yes CS6 is $700, Ext is $1000, upgrade is $200.

    What annoys me is upgrade in Australia is $337 - a rip off and Adobe detects my location and won't sell at the US price.

    Get yourself a U.S. VPN and order away.

    I have a US address so it must be my credit card that tips them off. Can't use Paypal either.
