Xbox Live Rewards change announcement coming Sept. 1
The change from Microsoft Points to real money has caused Microsoft to revise its Xbox Live Rewards program that grants users points for doing things like renewing their Xbox Live Gold membership.
The change, an announcement on the rewards page reads, will be detailed on Sept. 1. “You’ll continue to get rewarded for doing the things you love on Xbox Live -,” Microsoft wrote, “just not with Microsoft Points.”
Microsoft is currently testing real money transactions in the latest Xbox Live beta program.
