Microsoft committed to Microsoft Points on Xbox Live

Moon Money economy still strong

With talk of Microsoft Points being phased out of Windows 8, because they're dumb, people were hoping the pretend coins would eventually be phased out of Xbox Live, because they're dumb. However, Microsoft has said that MS Points would continue to be used. Because they're dumb. 

"Microsoft Points continue to be the currency for purchasing content for the Xbox 360 console," the company told The Verge

If Microsoft is as committed to turning the Xbox into the go-to entertainment hub it seems to want to be, then MS Points need phasing out. They're an unnecessary step that turns the idea of instant purchasing into something less-than-instant. Oh, and they're dumb. Dumb dumb dumb.
