Steinberg is not stupid, they know that it's not only the DAW. People today are interested also for some usable content and some unique synth. Halion SE with the Motif content, the drum loops and stuff... Padshop, Retrologue this goes all in this direction. It's not perfect and it will not replace Atmosphere but for the "Cubase bundle" it's a big step forward.
Not all are interested to have Soundcloud support but it's not bad to have it. Studio One has it too The same with Flac or the new improved comping features.
Cubase 7 will have IMO a big change in the GUI. But we will see this not before 2013 and this is a long time from today.
This is a small upgrade (50€!) with some interesting features. If Steinberg will change to such release cycles with free updates and bug fixes if needed, once a year a small upgrade with some nice features and all 2 years a major upgrade, IMO this is not the worst thing! Users are happy, Steinberg will generate some money (don't forget it's a company.. they _must_ find ideas to sell something).

The quantize additions look tempting too, but I am disgusted they are charging for it tbh, doesn't warrant 42 quids worth of updates considering the program cost over 500 quid to start with.

Actually, Studio One has something rather more interesting, and so far as I know unique: the Soundcloud integration is two way. In other words, they don't just let you upload to Soundcloud directly from within S1, but also you can DOWNLOAD and all of yours and your collaborators tracks appear right inside the S1 browser. So if you are collaborating with another musician via Soundcloud (something I now do regularly) then you can literally open S1 and drag/drop their tracks from the browser into the project and add your parts. A superb integration.
...and while it's not the most important thing a DAW offers by a long way, for me as a regular Soundcloud collaborator it's actually such a big selling point that I am considering buying Studio One (there's obviously a bunch of other reasons too, but this is a significant one).

Stability is the same if not better compared to .0.5 for those of you who bought it?

No one has mentioned this AFAIK, but I would assume that the upgrade paths from v.6 to 7 and v.6.5 to 7 will be different. 6.5 to 7 should be cheaper. If not, there'll be a lot of pissed off Cubase loyalists (myself included).
So many plugins, so little time...

I don't think there's a bridging technology for ReWire so Ableton Live would be out until they release a 64-bit version.

It's not an expensive update if i've heard correctly, but a freebie is always nice.
I like the looks of v6.5 btw; there's alot here that i think i will make use of.
