Wasn't everyone just complaining about MSPs being a ripoff? How you had to buy more than you needed all the time?

I hope they do go away with them. They were originally to be used as a currency through all of Microsoft's platforms. Hey, guess what also is universal through all platforms? Actual *bleep*ing currency.

Yeah, what the H? Bing Rewards is ending? I certainly hope this isn't true and they keep the points around... I too hate how there's always some leftover after buying something... But I like how you don't have to have a credit card to buy and download games... And with Bing Rewards I haven't spent a dime on MSP since last year.

In a sense it is good, I always hated how I had to spend money to buy stuff then be left over with points I couldn't use on anything I wanted. Only thing that this would hurt would be the ability to get free points for doing things.

I've never used nor wanted to pay for Microsoft points, it would be awesome if they just scrapped the idea completely.
Wouldn't happen, if there is a buck to be made, Microsoft will be all over that. One thing about Xbox is loyalty to customers isn't that great. Cash grabbing is however.

Keep in mind this is just an early report, guys, and that all details aren't know and potentially can change between now and when official word hits.

Being a late Xbox 360 player in its lifespan, my MS points are around 700, So I don't mind if the new console ditched that stuffs!!!
Dude, spend them fast then! They didn't say if they were converting the points to money or not (I assume they will), but they might make points worth way less in cash, so you'd lose some money.

I like the MS Points format, I imagined that I was paying less.

I'm just waiting for the new console reveal. I don't like this choice though.

I don't know what was so hard about using a system like Steam Wallet or PSN...

Good. It's easier and makes much more sense to use real world currency. I hate having a few useless points left over on my account from a previous purchase. The amount of times that I've needed to add more points to my account just to buy something only to have some still left over.
