Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Microsoft Points. Finally X-box 360 has done, the conversion of all prices and accounts’ points to local currency today, ending years of cruelly unnecessary arithmetic for digital purchasers everywhere.
The conversion of current Microsoft Points will be done equal or greater value of their local currency–including points earned through Xbox Live Rewards.
That’s generally 80 points to a dollar, if the rate wasn’t already ingrained in your subconscious.
“Until the further notice”, all existing Microsoft Point Cards and codes will be accepted,for their equivalent local value but their points will expire a year after being redeemed post-transition.
