So basically Microsoft will convert your current MP to currency?

Will I be able to still redeem Microsoft Points as Microsoft will just convert it to currency?

They will "until further notice". So if you buy a microsoft points card, it'll work until they post that it won't.

Then it will have an expiration date, in a form of ultimate antii-consumer anti-user corporate trolling.

If you can't spend what you have now within 1 year, then you really shouldn't be complaining because you had a full year.

Well I only buy stuff if I "need" in games I really like. The only things I bought, ever (I bought the 360 at launch), is story DLC for ME2 and some car packs for Forza 3. I am buying the ME3 DLC in a few days (about to finish ME2) but with the points I have I will have 480 points excess. Normally this balance will be carried forward to the future until I find something I deem worthy enough to spend on. This pretty much forces me to spend it on trivial stuff I don't really need.

On local currency, since LIVE is not available in my country, I can only get them on overseas trips. So this things is quite rare (hence why I only spend it on items I really like).

Yeah, my bank works the same way.
Oh wait, it doesn't, because that's freakin stupid.
