Upgrade to Live 8 Suite now? Help!

Trying to figure out if it makes sense to upgrade to live 8 suite after the announcement of live 9. They're offering a 25% discount on 8 with a free upgrade to 9; but what if I want to get the Push controller? Looks like I'll have to end up paying for live 9 again with the controller since they won't sell Push by itself (and its $950 yikes!!). I wan to figure out the most economical way to go. It's a little confusing?

    Looks like there's only 3 weeks left to decide.

    Also, the Tech Specs page for Push indicates it can be acquired with Live Intro, Live, or Live Suite.

    I asked customer service a while back on this, and they said that there will be no discount if you already have Live, so the prices you see on the website ($600 with Intro) are your best price already.  With that information one should be able to calculate the best deal.  (Tax from some internet retailers and possible international transaction fees if you buy direct might change things.)  You could also try to resell the Live 9 Intro product key that comes in the box to recoup a little of the cost.

    if you have standard 8 your best choice is to upgrade to 9 via PUSH (798 USD) it seems. So you pay 198 for the update and 600 for the controller.
