Microsoft is really starting to get the idea that in order to compete in the world of software and services, you can't charge a fortune when there are so many other decent options. They've bundled their "Work & Play" bundle for a while now at $199 and now the price has slipped to a mere $149. For that price you get Office 365 Home, Skype Unlimited, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Music. If you grabbed these separately, that would set you back over $400 - now yours for $149. Nicely done.
Prior to this offer, the Work & Play Bundle was available for $199 but Microsoft has slashed the price further today; consumers can head to the closest Microsoft Store to grab the bundle. The offer which started on 11th November is valid up to the 4th of January 2015 or while supplies last; each customer can purchase a maximum of three bundles.
