Microsoft lures in customers with the Surface Pro 2 'Geek' bundle

Microsoft has devised a new clever way to convince customers to purchase a Surface tablet: the new Surface Pro 2 “Geek” bundle that packs some interesting additional extras including an Xbox controller and two downloadable game. The bundle’s pricing starts at $899 and it’s available exclusively at Microsoft’s online store, with users saving $104 on the free PC games part of the offer including War Thunder Mustang Advanced Pack and Farming Simulator 2013 – users won’t be able to choose any other titles though.

If you’ve considered the Surface Pro 2 to be more than just a portable workstation, then Microsoft’s latest tablet bundle might pique your interest. In collaboration with online culture show Geek & Sundry, the company has quietly pushed live a new gaming deal on its virtual store in the US and Canada that throws in $105 worth of free games and accessories. For $899, the price of the base 64GB Surface Pro 2 model that’s already included, you’ll also get a wireless Xbox 360 controller and two games: Farming Simulator 2013 and a premium pack for free-to-play WWII flying simulator War Thunder. To be clear, neither title will vie for any upcoming gaming awards, but you can’t argue with free, right? Microsoft intends to run the offer until May 1st or until stocks run out, whichever comes sooner, so if you’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to grab yourself a Surface Pro 2, now might be the time to click in.
