News – Microsoft Points to be done away with?
In order to purchase Xbox Live Arcade games, Indie games, downloadable content and the like from Xbox Live, you have to purchase Microsoft Points first, although this could be about to change.
According to Inside Mobile Apps, by the end of the year Microsoft Points (which are also used on Windows Phone and the Zune Marketplace) could be replaced by real cash values, making purchases easier.
It was hardly a shock that Microsoft declined to comment on the story.
