    Hi! can anyone clarify- does this offer mean that I need to buy 2 or more licenses or no more than 2 licences? so If I want to buy 1 license does it apply?


    I'd especially appreciate answers from the Unity Dev/marketing team- I want to get 1 license.

    I think that means you only get the discount up to 2 licenses per order?

    Why don't you just try it to the point before you put your order in :p

    I just did, it works on a single license as well. Thanks for pointing this out, didn't know about this rebate! I was just about to purcahse Unity iOS.

    Limited to two licenses means you can't order more than two licenses with this discount.

    Don't suppose I could use the discount twice on a single license though.... *cheeky grin* ;D

    I'd buy pro if I could.

    I got a 20% discount but forgot to enter my VAT / company information so I got charged 20% again back when I bought it :)

    Can we get the discount if we just bought Unity right before this offer started? :(

    I think you might be better off emailing them about that.

    @OldRod, if you haven't activated your new license you could always ask sales for a refund as it's not wanted/bought by mistake. Then go ahead and buy with the discount. ;-)

    Note that the promo was only sent to a select group. I don't know if the code will work if your email address is not associated with the campaign.

    Well I got my discount before this offer started, by asking them nicely with a decent reason. Will be buying more licenses too. I just wish I wasn't so stupid to forget the VAT stuff. I just wanted unity pro and to get on with the game :S

    Making public the rebate coupon is a slight mistake, but I don't think UT would go too fussy about that: a sale is a sale. If numbers go wild and exceed the target, they can withdraw the offer before October 6. This is business' bread and butter.

    So what do you guys think, is it wort it?

    Questions:
    - What's the expected release date for 4.0 ?
    - When is is worth it based on Project Status (inPlanning, Started, Near Completion)?

    Thanks

    There isn't any. Ask again next year, maybe.

    If you can afford it without having to sell your house ... or car ... or bike: Yes, absolutely ;-)

    Eric covered that ;-)

    Depends on your project. There's a lot of games that really don't need Unity Pro. If you don't need version control, you can probably wait until "near completion" unless there's certain Pro features you really need early on for some reason.

    Personally, I got Unity Pro a few days after I activated the trial license and never regretted this. It's an awesome tool and it feels good to support the people that create this. But maybe ask me again when 4.0 comes out and I have to upgrade Pro, iOS Pro and Android Pro (and probably also my asset server license) ;-) ... hope they come up with a nice package deal (well, thinking about it ... upgrading to 3.0 didn't feel too bad and I think the only license I didn't have at that time was the Android one) ;-)

    It's a shame this offer wasn't on over the Xmas period instead when some peeps have a bit more money available or persuasion power to borrow some if they still have none (or get someone else to buy it for them with the discount as a good reason). Also if peeps are short of money then than the 20% off helps them even more.

    Yeah, in Europe, unless you're a registered company that 20% just about covers the VAT tax.

    Actually, at least in Germany, all you need is a VAT-ID which you should have if you're any sort of freelancer. So, a registered company is not necessary here.

    Thanks to the discount and the information from you guys, I am now a Unity IOS Pro owner.
    Now I have to take this stuff serious and try to make my investment back, or my wife is going to kill me. :eek::eek:

    Does the 20% off can be applied on a Unity pro + Unity IOS Pro license ? or is that just for the pro ?

    Actaully it works for 3 license types, but only on a max of 2 seats. try it at store.unity3d.com. You can enter bougus info and see that when you use just 1 seat you get 630 euro (210 euro p/licencetype) discount. I imagine the same happens on two "seats".

    Hehe, just bought Unity Pro with the discount too. This offer came not long after i decided i was going to buy, glad i happened to hold off. when you pay vat on the purchase with the discount it is exactly the same price, essentially vat free.

    Yep, time to get serious now like you I will be making the investment back, to convince the wife it's worth it ^^

    They seem to run it every few-to-several months, as well as having done it for the 3.0 launch... I'd say it'll be awhile before we see another one, either around the release of 3.5 if it's a couple of months out still, otherwise longer. Just my completely-off-the-cusp speculation :).

    Sorry you guys missed it, I got it because I had the trial a while ago and the discount email came through for the release of Unity Pro 3.4.1.
