Despite Windows 8 making the transition to cash as an alternative to Microsoft Points, Xbox LIVE is sticking with the latter.
Speaking to The Verge regarding the face that Windows 8 will use real cash currency, a spokesperson confirmed that the company has no intention of changing its ways on Xbox LIVE.
"Current Xbox Live customers may also make a purchase using points," the representative said.
"Microsoft Points continue to be the currency for purchasing content for the Xbox 360 console."
Many people feel that Microsoft Points are an unfair way to price, due to the fact that points are sold in set amounts and therefore people may need to purchase more points than they actually need.
