Microsoft Changes Point Purchase Structure

on April 10, 2010 9:01 PM

Sometime over the past few days, Microsoft has changed the way an Xbox Live user can purchase points. Instead of the inane 500 point stepping scale, they have switched it to a reasonable 400 point scale.

While 100 points may not seem like too much of a change, it really is, as most games are sold at the 800 points, or 10 dollars. So now, we can buy the exact amount we need instead of 1000 points and having leftovers.

I’m not sure if I’m the only one, but if I had points in my account, I would spend it on the dumbest stuff one can buy in the marketplace, like avatar clothing or gamer pictures. Hopefully this will help stop that random spending.
