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.

This kinda means ill be worse off :-( given the dollor/pound conversion rate, (And they tend to base game prices on xbox live in what it would cost in dollors, not pounds). ill end up paying more for arcade games.

ohhh well couldnt last forever i suppose.

What i mean here, is that 1200 points (expensive arcade game), equates to about 15 dollors, but its only 10.20pounds. I bet you when this finishes, it will be 15 dollors AND 15 pounds.



Everyone on Bluesnews is synical, get over it.
edit: i cant spell, this is my disclaimer.
