Bout time the currency changed, Canadians have been getting screwed for a while now. It might be a little bit off of each but with the amount of games I get on PSN, Steam, and XBL, the XBL stuff adds up, especially since launch. One more good thing to change, glad to see they're weeding out problems. Better late than never.

What happens to Microsoft points that haven't been used? Do they cross over to local currency or will we lose them going into the beta?

Will be interesting to see how they deal with exchange rates. I don't want to get charged more for a game in £'s if its cheaper in the equivalent $ based on the current rate for example.

They will convert to currency but you have to use them in less than a year. "It will include updates to improve overall performance" Thats M$ way saying more adds are cummin' !
