Trying to understand this. MS is getting rid of Points in favor of real currency

I don't agree with any time limitations, but points are a sleazy way to make extra money. A lot of people don't stop to think about how smaller values like 80 MSP or 120 MSP is actually worth in real currency, so they end up making more microtransactions. At least with real currency, the user should be always completely aware of what they're spending.


That was why they went with points alright. Made it seem like it was less than what it was and all. I think even Nintendo, with points, would put the exact amount. You see something on Nintendo's shop for 1000 points, that was $10.00, easy.

Points are a rip off and real money, you know how much you end up spending.

That's funny...even with points, I knew how much I ended up spending.
