Microsoft Points to be Phased Out

By Zinn Gravey, 3 years ago
Microsoft's Marc Whitten has announced that the company's own economic currency, introduced for the Xbox 360's marketplace, will not be featured on the Xbox One. Instead the Xbox One will use the local currency of the country you are playing in.

Also announced is the ability to share Xbox Live Gold features amongst the people living in your house. The features that are to be shared and to what extent have not been revealed but Whitten did say that your Xbox Live Gold membership will carry through to the next-gen console.

Is the removal of the Microsoft Points system a good thing? What features will you be able to share with the people you live with? Let us know your opinions and ideas by leaving a comment below.
