2 Years Live Gold Subscription + $199 Surface?
The $199.99 price tag is insane as it seems, it might be possible with a Live Gold Subscription which will include online multiplayer, 30 millions tracks all-you-can-eat music plan, and movies. This might not be impossible after all.
Think about it, there is a current option to purchase the Xbox for only $99 with a 2 years subscription to Xbox Live Gold. Don't you think Microsoft might do something similar with Surface? Imagine MS raking in $9.99 monthly for a Live Gold account + $199.99 Surface. Holy cow I would totally imagine Microsoft will do that.
OEMs, be very afraid...though OEMs outcries will probably bring in the FEDs and stop Microsoft from doing something like this.
