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.

Plus it gets back to how annoyed I am that Microsoft forces me to store a credit card when I'd much, much prefer to just re-enter the information every time so no one can buy $100 worth of crap on my account if they gain access to it.
Yeah, I would want an extra layer of passwording or something. I hope for those of us with a bunch of stockpiled points they'll still accept them (kinda like they do now for buying games on demand even though they prefer dollars) even if they stop offering them.
Use your head, don't lose it - Don't feed the trolls!
