More On: Xbox Live Microsoft Points

Back at E3, Microsoft made the announcement that Microsoft Points would no longer be the currency du jour across their multiple platforms including Xbox Live. In July, we learned that the magical cut-off date for MS Points would be August 1st, but that came and went and the changeover did not happen. Well, today we finally received official confirmation via e-mail that the changeover is happening “soon” after the next Xbox 360 system update. You can also take a look at the FAQ put out by MS to cover any additional questions about this migration. Otherwise, take a gander at the e-mail below and be ready to start purchasing with your local currency instead of a made up one.
