Microsoft announced today at E3 that they’re going to scrap their Microsoft Points system in Xbox Live in favor of a real money system. Under the current currency system, Xbox Live users must buy points to spend on games and other digital items. Under the new system, players will spend real money to buy games, completely forgoing points.
Microsoft will launch the real money system alongside the Xbox One. Although it’s set to completely replace the points system for both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360, they have not yet explained what will happen to Xbox Live users’ existing points after the change.
