Getting Rid of Microsoft Points is a Step In the Right Direction

Leviathyn.com | It was rumored yesterday that with its new Xbox 360 dashboard update out later this month, Microsoft may be moving away from its Points currency, instead charging an actual price for games and items on Xbox Live. This rumor surfaced after people reported that trying to purchase music and videos using the Windows 8 beta went from using the points system to charging a regular price for goods. Because the new update for the Live dashboard is supposed to take on many of the features of Windows 8, many are assuming that this could mean Microsoft is finally ditching the points system.

These articles are misleading. MS looks to be offering the best of both worlds. Defaulting to cash transactions but still leaving the option to pay in Microsoft Points. Hopefully they continue to distribute these point cards.

Those who understand the real value of microsoft points realize that everyone will end up spending more of their money if it goes to cash transactions than if they would using microsoft points that can be gotten for free from offers or up to 25% off retail prices. 1600 points cash will cost you 20$, if its points should cost you about 15-16$.

I have twenty points that will never be used. It is cool that you can buy on demand games with points.
