There is a rumor going around the Internet today stating Microsoft is planning on ending their current Xbox 360 “Microsoft Points” currency system. The rumor comes from an anonymous source source claiming to have very close ties to the software giant.
According to the anonymous source, Microsoft will be replacing the Microsoft Points system across Xbox LIVE, the Zune Marketplace, and Windows Phone with actual currency values (real money) for each region by the end of 2012. Microsoft has declined to comment on this rumor. We’ll let you know when/if they do.
