Are MS Points Doomed?

If there’s one thing every XBox owner has asked, it’s “What is a point worth?”. The second has to be what’s the point of points 🙂 (great site btw) has posted a news article saying a “source with knowledge” has indicated that MS points could be phased out by the end of 2012.

I’m not a big fan personally, because they make buying online just that much more hassle. I don’t want to load my account with points, I just want to buy some content. If it costs £2, I want to pay £2.

What about you guys. MS Points. Good or bad?
