I see that Microsoft is looking to phase out Microsoft Points by the end of the year.
That’s good for them. MS Points have definitely been one of the things that’s kept me away from Xbox Live; when I’m looking at a product, I don’t want to see that it’s 600 MS Points, then need to convert that back into whatever it is in money. I just want to use money.
MS Points are such a blatant tool to obfuscate pricing and lure people into making financial decisions they wouldn’t otherwise make. In the interest of consumer honesty, I’m glad to see them go.
