Microsoft has revealed that the reason it changed its Points purchase amount for Xbox Live is because it listened to "community feedback" on the matter.
Up until recently, if you wanted to buy Microsoft Points you would have to settle for a block of 500, which amounts to about $6.25 USD (or £4.04 GBP). As most games on the Xbox Live Marketplace are sold for 400, 800 or 1200 Points, this system has left users with leftover currency that they have felt forced to pay for.
With the change, the console currency is sold in 400-point increments, at a much more rounded $5 USD (£3.23 GBP). Microsoft said it was the 'feedback' from those bemoaning the leftover points that pushed them to make the amendments.
"We made this changes based on feedback from the Xbox LIVE community, and are confident they?ll be happy with these new offerings," the company said in a statement.
Let's hope we don't hear complaints from users who wanted to use those leftover points for Gamertag pictures or something.
