Microsoft Dropping MS Points?

Microsoft is planning on dropping its MS Points virtual currency by the end of the year, reports Inside Mobile Apps, quoting an anonymous "source with knowledge of the company’s decision." They say this will affect online sales through Windows Phone, the Zune marketplace, and Xbox LIVE. Word is: "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." Thanks IndustryGamers.

Whilst you have some good 'points' (rimshot!) about MS points, the main issue I had - and I doubt I'm alone in this - was that I'd end up with leftover points if I were to purchase something. It's like having to pay ten for something that's worth nine.

If a company wants me to jump through extra hoops, they need to make it worthwhile somehow. If I have to put in extra energy and money to get something that I could happily get elsewhere - why would I want to do that?
