With Windows 8 set to use local currency as default, Microsoft have reiterated that they'd like to make life as complicated as possible by sticking with the MS Points system for Xbox LIVE.
Microsoft confirmed that local currency would be the spurchasing standard on Windows 8, speaking to The Verge, but also noting that "current Xbox Live customers may also make a purchase using points".
"Microsoft Points continue to be the currency for purchasing content for the Xbox 360 console," a spokesperson continued.
What this basically means is that you'll be able to purchase Xbox Video and Xbox Music from both your console and your PC, but with completely different currency.
A little bit like duty free.
