As Xbox Infinity Approaches, Microsoft Nixes Points System

xboxcontrollerPZ(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Just in time for the arrival of the new Xbox (Infinity, or whatever it’ll be called), Microsoft has moved to end its Xbox Points system.

According to a report from The Verge, the method will now instead rely upon gift cards – something similar to Apple iTunes vouchers.

The tech giant has moved away from virtual currency in favor of cash since launching Windows 8 last year.

Microsoft is expected to debut its next generation gaming console on Tuesday, May 21st. Meanwhile, more information will arrive at this year’s E3 gaming conference.
