That's pretty good. Wonder if this comes UK?
I'm sure it will eventually, I'm in Canada so I miss out as well. :( It is good to see new features are being added that both Gold and Silver members can take advantage of. I usually buy digital codes that are emailed to me from third party sites like Maximus Cards, this will remove the middle man when it finally hits! :)
I must say, this is pretty big. Well done Microsoft.
Did NOT see this coming at all. Great partnership Microsoft! This will help so much.
on the PSN! I was thinking about this few days ago.
-This is good news. I already have a Paypal account that I use all the time and it would be convenient to use that instead. Nice.-
What a complete joke. YOU CAN USE PAYPAL!!! WOOOOO!!! Here's the problem with this... you're still buying ms points.... What a joke, buying mspoints, and then ending up left over with some random number of points that you can never use. How about this, letting us use paypal or our credit/debt cards to straight up buy the content rather than points!
yessssssssssssssssssssssssssss ss i was just thinking about this the other day yeeeeeeeeeesssssssss
PayPal are scammers, iono why would they even do this.......
How exactly are PayPal scammers?
How is it a scam? I've used PayPal for over 3 years and I actually make more interest having my money sitting in PayPal than I do in my own bank. Yes, it still isn't squat but better none the less. I don't think I will use this option for Live but having the choice is nice.
Pretty damn sweet. Hopefully they expand on this more to make it an option from your console and also to pay for Xbox LIVE subscriptions.
thats awesome, hopefully PSN does this, my atm card isnt visa so id be able to use my atm through paypal to buy stuff. Great idea though by MS.
PayPal is the most safest online payment system i can think off.
i hope this happens to PSN, considering all the money i make online is linked to my Paypal
just like me. i have 200$ in paypal which i would love to use on XBL and PSN
So, Microsoft, any thoughts on implementing it in any other countries? Hmmm? No? OK.
hurry up and come to uk. i hate having to go to shops to buy the points cards. on the psn they let me use my debit card but i cant use it on live. if they get paypal my problems will be solved
I love being able to use paypal wherever I can instead of any other method of payment, Thanks MS!!!
