You’ve been playing with Visual Studio Express for a while, creating some new cool apps and games for Windows Phone, and now you want to publish them but the \$99 USD price tag on the developer account seems a bit steep!
Well, how does \$19 USD sound like? :)
Until the end of August, that’s the current subscrition fee for a one year WPDev account (plus taxes)!
And in case you already have an account, you can renew your current account for the same price, as Joe Belfiore himself stated in a tweet just minutes ago!
For those of you asking... If you're already a dev you CAN renew at the $19 price! @TheRomit @mrcfield— joebelfiore (@joebelfiore) June 27, 2013
Please check the Windows Phone Dev Center for more information!
