Microsoft Points to be Fixed
It has always been a well known complaint that the way Microsoft points were purchased on Xbox Live was a bit…dodgy. You had to buy in sums of 500, 1000, 2000 etc. despite XBLA games and most DLC costing around 400, 800 and 1200 which meant that users would always be left with spare points.
Well Microsoft has apparently updated this in the US, with users now able to buy in batches of 400, 800, 1600 and 4000MSP, so that they only have to spend the money that they want to. I think the reasoning behind leaving those spare points was to make people feel like they should spend them on gamer-pics, themes or similar, pretty pointless stuff. That’s not to say that I haven’t done it myself…
No news on when this will be available in the UK and the rest of Europe, but it should please a few people that it is in the works.
