Xbox Points will be Replaced by Currency

I never understood why companies introduce points or any other virtual system. It is just a pain for consumers and has no advantage. Most recently Amazon introduced Amazon Coins for Kindle Fire tablet users. I do not think we need that. BitCoin is a different story, it has its own market. 

In any case The Verge reports that Microsoft is killing points according to their sources at the Redmond company.

The new system is supposed to work similar to the iTunes gift card system. The new system will work across all Microsoft marketplaces including Windows Store and Windows Phone Store.
