Christmas is the time of giving, and as the holiday season approaches, Microsoft apparently wants to start the gift of giving a little early. Anyone that uses a lot of Microsoft services on a daily basis might want to consider this particular offer, as the Redmond company has combined four of their top subscription services into one convenient and significantly lower priced package.

The name of the new bundle is “Work & Play”, and includes Office 365 Home, Skype Unlimited World, Xbox Live Gold, and Xbox Music Pass. To have all four yearly subscriptions separately would cost around 450 bucks a year, which is why the $199 price tag of the Work and Play bundle could save consumers with a lot of Microsoft subscriptions some serious cash.

As great as a deal as this is for those that heavily rely on Microsoft services on a daily basis, it’s not likely that your average Windows user or Xbox gamer would need such a service. But as it’s centered on those that already have multiple Microsoft subscriptions,  I imagine that many holding multiple subscriptions will happily jump on board this particular offer.  And remember, these application subscriptions all happen to be for cross platform applications, meaning that the $199 provides access across Windows, Android, and IOS devices.

The Work and Play bundle can be purchased in US Microsoft stores, and is available until January 4th.
