A step in the right direction.

Damn, I liked the points. When you found a sale, you could buy 25 € for 20€. That was awesome.

Should have been phased out before it got started...buy to rebuy is a shitty business model for a consumer. Glad to see these are going the way of the dinosaur.

MS should have used real currency from the start

except now its practically impossible to get things for a cheaper price like when you find sales for msp at certain retails, now itll be a set price and only a sale if/when MS chooses
