If you've got Microsoft points, they won't be usable there anymore
Starting as early as August 22nd Microsoft Points will be retired.

The points system is going to expire? does this mean they're going to make the jump to real currency already? If the points are going to expire, do you think retailers are going to have huge sales on the things or just ship the old cards back to MS?

Also How many people here actually used the Zune Marketplace?

Wait, where do you see anything about August 22?

q: What’s changing with Zune Marketplace?
a: Starting as early as August 22nd Microsoft Points will be retired. As a result you will no longer be able to rent or buy TV, movie, or music content on Zune Marketplace. We encourage you to spend your points balance prior to this change.

This makes me sad.
I dislike iPod's and the Zune was a good replacement for that.

Oh well, I guess I'll just use my phones MP3 capability now.

odd, I did a ctrl+f for August and didn't find anything. Guess I would have seen it if I just read the first question >_>

Just buy mp3s from Amazon. I have a Zune 80 gig and I've been downloading from Amazon for years.

The points will be turned into real money which you have a year to use and Since Zune uses Microsoft points and won't be updated for currency you will not be able to purchase stuff from it. It's as simple as that
