There's nothing quite as stark as business-speak is there? While you Xbox LIVE subscribers are going about your daily lives, frittering away the hours of daylight in joyous pursuits, somewhere, under intense beams of halogen strip lighting, men in suits are coming up with ways to further monetise you.
According to an updated CV profile from Microsoft employee, Praveen Rutnam, the Big 'M' will be looking to deploy a "strategy to further monetize Xbox LIVE subscriber base that will be implemented for holiday 2012".
Now, before you all reach for the big, red, panic buttons, it's important to note that we don't know what this strategy entails. Could it be the move from Microsoft Points to real currency? Maybe. Is the Platinum Membership finally seeing the light of day? Will this see consoles bound to Xbox LIVE accounts? Are Microsoft about to implement their own Online Pass...and, if so, will it be console-wide?
We don't know. We'll just have to wait until the monetisation starts...or, you know, Microsoft tell us. [via Joystiq]
