I'm hoping this will result in a price drop for MS points before the switch happens. It would be bad for people who sell codes on Ebay, they would either have to keep the price the same hoping people will buy them until the switch or just flog their inventory at a low price.

If they do decide to drop their prices, it would be good for me. I would buy a few codes before the switch and spend it lol.


I just wonder what's going to happen to MSP that's already on the account. Does it get switched to a currency. What about the Rewards System? 20 MSP for bdays and surveys doesn't sound a lot, but if they switch it to $0.25, it would look even more pathetic.

Yes, it was so awful buying 20 dollar point cards for 10 bucks. That was so terrible. People aren't very bright.

Well damn. I liked the points vastly more than a dollar monetary system =[

I don't see why it had to change. I enjoyed being able to get the msp for cheaper/buy it with amazon gift cards. I am just going to blame the people who hate having left over points. Jokes on them though, thy will have the same problem, just converted to cash.

Won't believe it til it happens. I've already seen rumors before a year ago and we still have points around.

Anyone who complained about the point system on the ground that "Maths is hard" needs to be tracked down and eliminated, because clearly we don't need these people.
