Microsoft to Discontinue Microsoft Points?

An article on Inside Mobile Apps suggests that Microsoft’s virtual currency system, Microsoft Points, may be discontinued by the end of the year.

While Microsoft have declined to provide them further information, it is said that developers for the Windows Phone, Zune marketplace and Xbox LIVE have been warned to plan their downloadable content and in-app purchases in accordance with the change.

Microsoft have been criticised for the virtual currency as customers often find they are forced to buy more points than they need for the purchase they want.
