Major Nelson brought word
on his blog earlier today that United States subscribers can now use Paypal
to make purchases for their Xbox Live
account. So basically, anything you previously had to use a credit card for, you can use Pay Pal for now without having to associate a credit card to your Xbox Live account. This looks like a solid move on Microsoft's part to open up more avenues for payment. I personally still buy Microsoft points and Live subscription cards from Best Buy, Amazon or anyone running a sale. This prevents there being ANY issue with Microsoft accidentally hitting my payment info by mistake and adds further security.
