It's like releasing books that will open on the Kindle 8 but not on the Kindle 7 because you changed the format.
Yes, that's a huge "f*** you"
This is quite common though with all sorts of file formats. Old files can be opened with new application, but new files can't be opened with old application. (Adobe, MS Word, etc.)
New features bring a different file format.
I feel your pain, to a point, but I'm happy with the $100 upgrade price. The UI is great (although takes a little getting used to), you get the ROM 2 XP (300+ more presets), and the cloud-based management app (which I didn't think I'd like, but is actually quite handy for updating/downloading).
When all is said and done I probably have around $600 in to Nexus between the old version, the upgrade, and expansions. And I use it in every project. For the money, I could do very many different things with, but Nexus has been absolutely worth it to me. Its hard to buy any synth (hardware or software) for that kind of money and get used as often as I use nexus.
I can find reasons to gripe about nexus, as I'm sure anyone could, but it is what it is. The sounds are usable right out of the box. The business aspects and customer relations are completely separate from using it creatively in my studio, which I tend to focus on.
