Remember how we reported that Microsoft were allegedly thinking about getting rid of their Microsoft Points scheme by this year? Well it seems that another source has added to this rumour, suggesting to Eurogamer that consumers will "still be able to use redeemable codes to buy DLC and other products after Microsoft phases out Microsoft Points".
EG's source source suggested that the action was being taken as part of a "profit driven decision" on Microsoft's part, with the new system appearing to be a "better spinner" for the company.
Yesterday's report from Inside Mobile Apps, suggested that after the MS Points scheme is phased out, all transactions will be based on the region set on the purchasing account, with "real money" used to purchase all content, presumably directly. As the site notes, this would put Microsoft alongside Apple and Google in the way they conduct online transactions.
