Earlier this month Microsoft announced that those who had opted into the public Dashboard beta will be receiving an early update which converts Microsoft Points into your local currency, this update came after Microsoft announced at E3 that they’ll be chucking out MS points in favour of actual cash amounts.
Good news for those not in the beta, Microsoft have began to roll out a stable update to everyone across the 41 Xbox Live-enabled markets. A Microsoft rep said that “this will be a gradual deployment across members and regions. Don’t panic if you don’t see an immediate update, just keep checking back in.”. The full roll out is expected by the end of September.
So there you have it! Farewell Microsoft Points!
