Microsoft offers one-year of Office 365 Home, Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Music Pass, and Skype Unlimited for $199 | VentureBeat | News Briefs | by Emil Protalinski

Bundling is back

"Microsoft is testing a new Work & Play Bundle that features four of its subscriptions: Office 365 Home, Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Music Pass, and Skype Unlimited World + WiFi. A one-year commitment will set you back $199, but you can only buy it by going to a physical Microsoft Store in the U.S.

Let’s do the math, shall we? Office 365 Home costs $9.99 per month, or $119.88 for the year. 12 months of Xbox Live Gold costs $59.99 while a 12-month Xbox Music Pass costs $99.90. Skype Unlimited World is $13.99 per month, though you can get the first month for free, so that’s $153.89.

All of that adds up to $433.66. So yes, $200 is more than a 50 percent discount."
