Real currency, not Microsoft Points is the default currency for Windows 8
It has emerged that Microsoft will be using real currency as their main form of currency on their new OS, Windows 8.
Credit card payments will be used for movie rentals and music downloads in Windows 8 instead of Microsoft Points which are currently the main currency on Xbox Live for everything except the Games On Demand full-game download store.
Even though the credit card payments will be the default payment system Microsoft Points will still be usable in Windows 8.
Rumours had emerged earlier this year that Microsoft were planning to phase out Microsoft Points in favour of real currency but this was denied. With real currency taking a front seat role in Windows 8 it could still spell the end for Microsoft Points.
