Microsoft Points aren’t well-known with the public, however I don’t actually have a problem with them. Sure they’re complicated and irritatingly obviously trying to get you to waste your money, however they are a flexible, guilt free way of purchasing your products so, well, what isn’t, really, to like? If they are gotten rid of in the next gen, that is excellent. If they stay? That is also excellent – with me anyway. I think they have benefits and drawbacks and, really, I don’t excellent care whether they are available or not. But while they do it’s awesome understanding, or admiring, that they do have benefits.
Xbox Remain also blends up, for some unique purpose, a real income and points buys. Almost every On Requirement game is purchased with a real income taken from your financial institution and is cost up in weight and pence (or money and cents); however video arcade and independent games, as well as DLC and generally every other item that isn’t an OD game, is done with points. Like, the hell? What is with that? Why mix it all up like that?
Xbox Remain Benefits allows individuals to create a few points by basically finishing reviews or purchasing/doing points on XBL. Sure you will likely only create 100-200 monthly, however these are actually super useful and have often created up the quantity of points I already had to a greater sum so I could buy a more costly item. Plus while it may only be 100-200 monthly, it’s free, and people like freebies right?
The only points like this on other systems was a compensate program on Playstation Network Card, however this did not provide individuals any kind of forex and was terminated. Individually I think the only purpose Xbox is able to provide this rewards program and actually give individuals money is because it uses points and not actual cash.
