Wasn't sure if this had been posted or not, but Microsoft's Biz Spark program provides MSDN Universal subscriptions to developers in startup companies/businesses. There are some rules like the company must be less than 3 years old and making less than $1,000,000 a year.
But for those who fall into that category, you get access to all of Microsoft's software for a 3 year period in order to help in the development, testing and demonstration of your apps. After the three years you can continue using the software you got, you just won't get all the newest products that release after that period. You can get more info at the site, I just wanted to point this out as between this and the Adobe Creative cloud ($50 a month for ALL of adobe's products) it feels like Christmas as a developer who is starting a game development business.Microsoft Biz Spark Program
Hope this helps some of you especially with your windows 8 and windows phone development. I am loving it.
