Rumor: Microsoft Abandoning MS Points

According to a story posted over at Escapist Magazine’s website, an unidentified source has gotten word out that Microsoft is planning to phase out Microsoft Points, in favor of an actual currency based system. Microsoft Points have taken some flak, due to users having to purchase them in pre-determined amounts, in which they have to sometimes purchase more points than they actually need for a particular piece of content. I think this will be a welcome change to the Xbox LIVE community.
