Today, Microsoft announced at their E3 show that later this year they will be getting rid of Microsoft Points and will instead be using real world currency, i.e. U.S. Dollars, Euros, etc. This has been a long time coming, so fans… rejoice!
Note: There is no word yet on whether or not they are converting current points, but with the recent backlash on other news, we certainly would expect them to pay attention to detail from here on out.
