You may want to write this down so you can remember it later on, in case you really can't think of a better gift for someone in your life who depends on several Microsoft services. The company has just released a limited edition Work & Play bundle, which contains one-year subscriptions each to Office 365 Home (comes with unlimited OneDrive storage), Xbox Live, Xbox Music Pass and Skype Unlimited World and WiFi for a total of $199.

We've listed down the price of each service for you, so you can figure out if the bundle's worth buying:

  • Office 365 Home: $9.99/month or $99.99/year
  • Xbox Live 12-month Gold Membership: $59.99/year
  • 12-Month Xbox Music Pass: $99.90/year
  • Skype Unlimited World: €10.49 ($13.05)/month or $156.60/year if the numbers you're calling are mostly located in the US

Of course, if you use the cheaper Office 365 Personal service, don't bother with Xbox Music Pass (you only need it if you want to use the Xbox Music apps) and can make $10 worth of Skype credits stretch for years, you'll likely lose money on this deal. If the bundle does save you cash, though, check out its website to find a store where you can buy it -- and soon, since it's only available until January 4, 2015.
