Not only has the Microsoft Points vanished into thin air as one of the worst pricing solutions that just could not be carried over into the new generation Xbox LIVE, but now the Xbox LIVE Marketplace has walked off ‘n’ all…
Now simply known as the Xbox Games Store Microsoft had this to say to Joystiq on the matter:
That’s right, [Xbox Live Marketplace] is now called the Xbox Games Store, and will sit alongside the Xbox Music Store and Xbox Video Store. This is to make it easier for consumers to find content both on Xbox 360 today and Xbox One when it launches in November.
Although we haven’t perused our beady little eyes over the dashboard yet, nothing else out of the ordinary has been tidied up for a pre-Xbox-One launch. Expect us to refer to almost everything now as being on the Xbox Games Store!
