Xbox is going to discontinue Microsoft Points (Rumor)

There will be a new dashboard update for Xbox Live that’s rumored to be discontinuing Microsoft Points as retail currency. The user interface will be refreshed with smaller Live Tiles, similar to what Microsoft is developing for Windows 8.1, Microsoft is also said to be changing the look of the Xbox dashboard, with the possibility of darker and lighter themes. The update will go into beta testing during June and July 2013, but won’t be available to the public until August. These are only rumors. But they seem to be legit.

Microsoft Offers 1,600 MSP Grand Theft Auto V Pre-Order Bonus

If you pre-order the highly anticipated, open-world crime title Grand Theft Auto V arriving September 2013 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 you just  might be persuaded to do it with Microsoft themselves. If you pre-order Grand Theft Auto V with Microsoft through the Xbox Live Marketplace you will still have to pay the full $59.99 launch price customary for any of Rockstar’s latest, but you’ll also be given 1,600 Microsoft Points to save for DLC or do what you like with.

Some are drawing the conclusion that this is an unnecessary move and a ploy by Microsoft to balance out the numbers between Grand Theft Auto’s sales performance on the PlayStation 3 versus its Xbox 360 counterpart. Check out our Grand Theft Auto V section for more information on what many are looking forward to as the current gen’s last diamond hit.
