Microsoft provides updates about the upcoming Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade and Family Pack editions. Here's a snip about the Family Pack, it costs $149.99 and features three Windows 7 Home Premium licenses:
Today, most homes have more than one PC in them. When you run Windows 7 on more than one PC on a home network, you can do more with features like HomeGroup. HomeGroup allows people to connect to PCs on their network and share files, music and photos with the whole family – easily. The Windows 7 Family Pack is an easy and affordable way to get all your PCs in your household running Windows 7 through licensing to install Windows 7 Home Premium on up to 3 PCs.
The Windows 7 Family Pack will be available starting on October 22nd until supplies last here in the US and other select markets. In the US, the price for the Windows 7 Family Pack will be $149.99 for 3 Windows 7 Home Premium licenses. That’s a savings of more than $200 for three licenses. This is a great value and we’re excited to be able to offer it to customers.

This would be fine if you could upgrade more than 3, say 2 parents, 3 kids, for an additional $50 per license. Assuming the 2 adults 1 child theory seems a bit limited, and really just encouraging you to buy 1-2 more licenses at full cost.
