Is Microsoft going to have a promotion to sell Microsoft Office 2013 at an unbelievable price, just like what it did for Windows 8? If the price for Microsoft Office 2013 Professional which is now going on sale in Singapore is true and not a price error, the most premium edition of Office 2013 available for retail purchase is going for a ridiculous deal of about USD $4.10 (SGD $5.00).
