Xbox Live drops Microsoft points for real currency with latest update
Welcome to the present Xbox Live. The latest update for Xbox Live does away with Microsoft Points as a way of buying things from the Xbox Marketplace and now allows you to use actual currency (if you have a US XBL account, it’s in US dollars).
For those with questions about the conversion and how the new currency system will work, the currency transition FAQ is now available.
