You know those endearingly pesky little Microsoft Points that require you to spend money to get them so you can then spend them? Well, it looks like Microsoft may finally be ready to move on from their fake currency in favor for, you know, actual money.
The report of the change states that Microsoft could move on from their point-based economy by the end of 2012. This would change the the marketplace for Xbox Live, Zune Marketplace (still a thing, apparently) and Windows Phones. Then you can actually buy things for how much their work without having to do weird math equations to figure out how much things cost. It only makes sense, since the growing markets on iOS devices use a straight cash amount, as does almost every other device that gamers buy things on.
