Revised Microsoft Points system US only

Gamers everywhere collectively jumped with joy over the news that Microsoft will be implementing a new 400 point increment to their system for purchasing incidentals like DLC and indie games. However it appears that the celebration is going to be short lived for those living outside the US as Microsoft explained in an official tone.

“We are offering Microsoft Points in increments of 400 on Xbox LIVE in the US only, and we have nothing further to announce at this time. We’re always listening to the Xbox LIVE community for feedback and looking at ways to evolve Xbox LIVE,” the company said in a statement.

Hopefully this is simply the first step of doing away with the point system altogether and moving towards a more traditional pricing model.
