Everyone has their favorite brick and mortar stores for buying things, and for some, it is mass-seller Costco and its chain stores. Even though Microsoft is out of the Core i5 Surface Pro 3 with 128 GB of storage, Costco is ready to sell them next week.

Heading to the Costco site, and you can find the Core i5 version up for preorder at $1,149.99. If that sounds more expensive compared to the $999 Microsoft Store version, it is only because Costco is selling the Surface as a bundle, complete with a black Type Cover and one-year of Microsoft Office 365 Personal. With the 365 inclusion, you also get an extra 1 TB of OneDrive storage and 60-minutes of free Skype calls per month.

These are the ones where developers can code for one, but get two apps for Phone and Windows for users.

It is no secret that Age of Empires: Castle Siege is coming to Microsoft's platform, but today you can finally download both for your Phone and PC, and even get that coveted Xbox LIVE integration.
