Are they trapped in the cage, or did they just steal it? Unless steal is used in place of what we say for the metal steel. If so, then woops

This is one of the reasons I like PS3 better than the 360. There's no bullshit "point" system. If something costs $20, it's $20. Not 1600 Microsoft points.
It gets even more annoying when they mix them together. DLC you can buy with points, but games on demand? Nope. Actual money. If you want your own currency, fine. Just make sure you use it for everything!

quote Ded Valve
Seems obvious Xbox 720 won't use MSP since it'll most likely be running a version of Windows 8 itself like the Windows phone. Except with ads. Lots of ads.
I hate all of the ads. I pay 50 bucks a year, I shouldn't have to see adds everywhere.

Ded Valve CAN YOU READ THE FUTURE!? Why would they go to such efforts to make their PR language a steal cage if they were just going to switch between consoles?! Why, if that were true, they must think we're stupid or something! That can't be true, you must just be wrong! YES, YOU MUST BE WRONG!

I'm surprised they were ever on Windows honestly. MSP makes much more sense on a closed platform like the Xbox.

At this point, I really don't mind MSP. With rewards system they've got going, the deals you can get on buying MSP, and now that purchases are usually in the same increments as the cards, it might actually be better to have them.

Dat PR language: "Xbox 360 console"

No confirmation or denial or whether MSP will be used on the next console! Damn their impenetrable shield!
