Step right up all you Microsoft faithful, and feast your ocular peepers on today’s fantabulous next-gen Xbox rumours! Are you sick to death of always having to purchase another pack of MS Points in those ludicrous fixed denominations just so you can make use of your remaining balance, which always happens to be just short of the actual amount you need? Are you tired of feeling ripped-off by virtual currencies designed to get you to spend more than you actually intended? Well then this shiny new next-gen Xbox rumour is just for you!
According to sources close to the next Xbox, Microsoft will be dropping MS Points in favour of actual currency. Note that this isn’t the first time that this rumour has cropped up, despite it being quashed a few days later. It’s probable that Xbox LIVE will do what Windows 8 does: default to local currency but still accept MS Points as a payment method.
Further rumours suggest that Microsoft is readying a new Forza title to launch alongside the next-gen Xbox. Considering how current generation Forza titles look practically photo-realistic already, it’ll be interesting to see what a next-gen version looks like. We’re going to call it Super-High-Definition-Real-Life-Graphcs 2.0.
