Bundle includes a year of Office 365 Home, Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Music Pass, and Skype Unlimited World + WiFi

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has truly embraced a “mobile-first and cloud-first” mantra for his company and that strategy has become increasingly apparent in recent months. The company has partnered with cloud storage heavyweights like Dropbox, bolstered its Office 365 services, given unlimited storage to Office 365 subscribers, and even embraced competing platforms with its Mobile Office suite.
Today, Microsoft is taking things one step further with its new “Work & Play Bundle” which bundles together a year’s worth of the following services: Office 365 Home, Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Music Pass, and Skype Unlimited World + WiFi. The bundled services will be available for a $199.

Purchased separately, the service cost of each service for a year is as follows:
Office 365 Home: $99.99
Xbox Live Gold: $59.99
Xbox Music Pass: $119.88
Sky Unlimited World + WiFi: $167.88
So Microsoft is giving users roughly $450 worth of online subscription services for $199 which is quite a deal if you’re already well entrenched into the Microsoft ecosystem and use (or plan to use) all of the services listed.
The Work & Play Bundle is currently only available in Microsoft Stores, and will be offered through January 4, 2015. Microsoft is limiting the promotion to three per customers at this time.
