PostSubject: Microsoft Points to be Ditched Post-Next Xbox Reveal?   Fri May 17, 2013 2:06 am

In what we're hoping will be the last damn rumour about the next Xbox, Microsoft could be gearing up to announce the demise of the Microsoft Points system following its next-generation reveal at the platform holder's HQ next week. It's thought that details could be unveiled at this year's E3 in June.

According to sources close to The Verge, Microsoft could be planning to adopt proper cash transactions and iTunes-style gift cards, as opposed to the old Points system, whereby you're forced to purchase the currency in bundles of 500, 800, 1000 and so on.

"The new system will work across Microsoft's various marketplaces, including the Windows Store, Windows Phone Store, and Xbox," the report notes. "We understand that Microsoft is planning to unveil the system as soon as E3, with a planned launch later this year in time for the next generation Xbox console."

There have been rumours in the past that Microsoft could ditch its Microsoft Points system, and to date nothing has materialised. Could the advent of a new console present and opportunity to kill off the old MSP? Would you prefer to keep the old Points system or would you rather pay with real money?

Damn I love the points system. I get everything cheaper by buying 4200 points for around 28 on ebay.

Hope this is just another one of those rumours.

Dont think it will be, this is something the fans have been asking for for a few years!

I'm happy either way.

I'm ok with it either way....I do usually wait for deals on the point cards, but you can find deals on Itunes cards as well, so I think it would sort itself out either way....plus, the change would eliminate those instances where you've got 30 points (or some other arbitrary amount) left and can't find anything to spend it on....

Actually I reckon this is a rumour because they've just added loads of stuff to the rewards scheme.

...most likely is just a rumor...usually seems to be the case when it comes to "next-gen console news"... Rolling Eyes
