But then, they always do.

Earlier this week we discussed how Windows 8 defaults to local currency for music and video pricing, and how it may mean the future for the XBox LIVE service is also in local currency.
Not long after, Microsoft came forward first to confirm that Windows 8 will be using real world currency, and secondly to debunk any theories we may have regarding the change from Microsoft Points to local currency. “Microsoft Points continue to be the currency for purchasing content for the Xbox 360 console,” a spokesperson told Polygon, and they don’t have anything new to announce regarding that.
They certainly didn’t comment on the future though, as Polygon remarks — so the theory that they’re in the very early stages of phasing Microsoft Points out still stands.
