The software has to always be bundled with the Hardware. It's a marketing necessity! If they don't bundle any kind of version ( any version! ) of the software with the Hardware, customers will be up on arms more than what they are now complaining about what they already have! At the end is a question of you either wanting it and needing it, because it does appeal to your djing style, workflow and creative level or, it doesn't! You can't really put a price on creativity and progress, can you?
