Rumor: Microsoft to Discontinue Microsoft Points

MS Points CardHere’s some good news for Xbox 360 gamers everywhere – Microsoft Points are going to be discontinued and phased out by the end of the year if a new report by Inside Mobile Apps is to be believed.

According to “a source with knowledge of the company’s decision”, the points system will be dumped by the end of 2012 and instead all transactions will take place in the currency of each user’s set region. The change will not only affect gamers on Xbox Live, but also Windows Phone and Zune users.

So far Microsoft has responded to the rumor with the standard “we do not comment on rumours or speculation”, however given that the cat has apparently been let out of the bag, and that this will be such a welcome change for many, we hope they come through with an official confirmation shortly.
