A brand new firmware is now available and finally replaces MS Points with real-world money
Microsoft has just rolled out dashboard update 2.0.16537.0 for the Xbox 360, taking the firmware up to a new version and finally replacing the MS Points virtual currency with real-world money.The Xbox 360 has been around for many years and continues to be quite popular, even if its replacement, the Xbox One, is getting ready to debut this November.
Now, a new dashboard update has just been released, taking the console's system software to version 2.0.16537.0.
The chief change introduced by the firmware is the elimination of the MS Points, as the virtual currency is replaced with real-world money.
Any MS Points cards that will be redeemed on the Xbox 360 will see Microsoft add an amount of currency equal to or greater than the current value of the MS Points.
The new software will be automatically downloaded the next time you start the console and are connected to the Internet, according to the blog of Microsoft's Larry Hryb.
