 Rumor: Microsoft to discontinue its virtual currency system Microsoft Points Technology Gaming

Microsoft’s proprietary virtual currency system, Microsoft Points, will be phased out by the end of the year, according to a source with knowledge of the company’s decision. The change will affect developers for Windows Phone, the Zune marketplace and Xbox Live.

By the end of 2012, all transactions will be based on the region set on the purchasing account and real money will be used to purchase all Windows Phone content. The move puts the Windows Phone Marketplace in line with the purchasing practices used in the App Store and the Android Market.

of course, in the end this will be a good thing, but what about those 90 points that I still have on my xbox 360 account? will I get those pennies back from MS somehow?

  1. speaking as a former microsoft employee, i would say the probability of your ever seeing remuneration for that 90 points is slim to none.
