Thank goodness. I mean honestly, who thought it was a good idea to have 800 MS Points equate to $10? It makes absolutely no sense—unless confusing the consumer is the end goal here. I know what you're thinking, but no, I don't think Microsoft is quite that evil.

Of course, since there's no official word that this change will be rolling out in a new dashboard update, we'll have to remain patient until we receive confirmation. Though, it's hard to imagine them not moving forward with this.
