In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Welp gang, Guess Microsoft is pulling the plug on the points systems on the next patch update this coming weeks. If you ask me, I'll miss the days when i just stared at the 100 points left, not knowing what to do with them and not being able to spend them anywhere.


And by miss it, i mean go party medieval style like it's 999.

Oh, you didn't get the memo?

The main reason why I liked using MSP is due to my debit card not being on the console. I like any pre-paid cards, but I'm gonna have to start trusting nowadays.

I think you can still keep on using any left over or existing MicroSoft Points, until June 1st 2015, when they will all officially expire.

I wonder: can people still go out and buy the old MS Points Cards and still use them on Xbox 360? Because, the old MS Cards are still available for sale in stores.

EDIT: Yes, it looks like you actually can buy and use the MS Points Cards on the Xbox Live Market Place until "further notice."

The thing is, they're still doing it like Microsoft points, except you don't have to buy the codes anymore. I have 1100 MSP in my account, but the dollar value isn't showing up. That's almost $15 in conversion.

Really? Mine converted and it was like ~$2 something. I wonder why yours didn't.

I tried buying a game, but had no funds in my account. The game would have been 800 MSP.
