The currency that is used by the Xbox Live Marketplace and the Zune online stores is known as Microsoft Points. Microsoft points allow user to buy content from these marketplaces without the use of a credit card. Microsoft points can be purchased with the use of a credit card online or can be obtained freely from a number of websites through the use of a Microsoft Points card. The cards are prepaid cards and normally have a fixed value depending on the region that a person is in. In the United States the card comes with a value of sixteen hundred or four thousand points. Microsoft points or free Microsoft points are normally in the local currency resulting in some regions paying more for the same quantity than other regions. One of the most common causes of this is currency fluctuations. Some countries in which they are sold in the United States, Canada, the European Union, Japan, Australia, Mexico, and New Zealand. Canada and the European Union charges value added tax to Microsoft points. The minimum purchased amount of Microsoft points in the United States is four hundred points which it is five hundred in the United Kingdom.
Prepaid Microsoft points cards can be purchased from retail stores and some convenience stores and each contains a code that is worth a fixed amount of Microsoft points while free Microsoft points can be obtained from a number of online websites. Once the points are obtained they can be added to any live account for purchase. Once used, the cards are no longer worth anything. They cannot be recharged and it is not possible to partially use a card.
Free Microsoft points are used to buy games, themes, gamer tag pictures, titles but they are also used for materials used for game expansion such as vehicles, maps and songs and other content that can be downloaded. Points in an account are only valid for the region that account is in and cannot be transferred to another region.
Some critics claim the Microsoft points are deceptive in terms of the actual costs because users are normally required to purchase more points than they need due to the minimum purchase set by Microsoft. They also claim that it is deceptive in that it makes things look cheaper than they really are. For example, buying a song on Zune is about seventy-nine Microsoft points which is reality is actually ninety-nine cents. Seventy-nine points however appears cheaper to the user than ninety-nine cents.
Some people try to obtain free Microsoft points buy using a Microsoft points generator which is a program that claims that it is able to create valid Microsoft points that can be used for purchases on the above mentioned websites. Microsoft Points generators is one of the most successful and highly used programs since that is safe to use and does not infect your system. People are able to successfully produce free Microsoft points codes but in reality most of these codes do not work. They are normally invalid. So the generator successfully produces the codes but most of the times the codes have already been used and can no longer be used.
