I am trying to get some sense of what is the difference between Adobe Bridge CC and Photoshop CC vs. Photoshop CS6 Extended.

Some background. I currently use Lightroom as my main photo editing program and use Photoshop when I want to do additional editing. As a general rule I was updating Lightroom as updates occurred and updated Photoshop every other generation. Additionally I use Adobe Acrobat Professional and updated that program every other generation.
About three months ago I decided to sign up for Adobe Creative Cloud for the then promotional monthly fee of $29.95 for one year. My rationale was that I was at the point where I would be updating both Lightroom and Acrobat and the cost of both programs would equate to about one year’s membership in Creative Cloud. With that monthly fee I was able to download Lightroom 5, Photoshop CS6 Extended, and Acrobat XI Pro. I also can download numerous other programs from Creative Cloud.

I now see that Creative Cloud now offers (which I downloaded) both Bridge CC and Photoshop CC. My first impression is that Photoshop CC is similar to Photoshop 6 but may not have all the bells and whistles of Photoshop CS6 Extended. Bridge CC is essentially the same as Bridge in Photoshop CS6 but in addition seems to have more capability for organizing and filtering photos. Am I correct that Bridge CC and Photoshop CC essentially duplicates Photoshop CS6 Extended? Is there any advantage of using the CC versions vs. the CS6 version?

I also see I can get only one program – say Photoshop CC for the $9.99/month promotional price. If I went this direction I would have to purchase to current generation of Lightroom and Acrobat.

Any guidance would be appreciated.
