Microsoft Points, the confusing currency of Microsoft products, may soon be dropped from the company ‘s various services after it was revealed that it has been swapped for cash values in Windows 8.

The Verge reports that Microsoft is now showing cash values next to movie rentals and music downloads in its default Windows 8 applications.

This move is interesting as there was a glitch on the Xbox Live Marketplace that showed cash values instead of point values.

Microsoft’s Windows 8 and Xbox Live Marketplace products are different services, but the ne desktop and mobile operating systems seek to unify them.
