Xbox Live is doing away with Microsoft Points when the Xbox One launches, Microsoft’s Marc Whitten just said at E3. Everything will then be priced in local currency.
I hate Microsoft Points. I always have. And not simply because they’re essentially a cheap scam to confuse you on how much you’re actually paying. It’s because this crappy “currency” doesn’t act like any normal currency in the real world.
Microsoft confirmed that an exploit, published online, delivered free Microsoft Points but denied that the amount stolen was more than $US1 million, as had been rumoured.
