Report: Microsoft Points Are Going Away Forever

Internet site Inside Mobile Apps has a source inside Microsoft telling them that the detestable currency we’re all forced to use on Xbox Live, Microsoft Points, will be phased out this year, replaced by standard currency transaction.

This move is a long time coming, and so I certainly hope this report is the truth. I’d hate to have to journey into a bold new generation of video games still being forced to pay $10 for things that cost $7. Seriously, screw Microsoft Points. They were a terrible idea to begin with, and nobody will be sad that they’re gone, aside, perhaps, from Microsoft’s accountants.

Bookkeepers and accounts do business and budget with numbers, not to bang you for every dollar you own. It’s the CEO’s who want to nickle and dime you.
