If the LinkedIn profile for Microsoft’s group product planner Praveen Rutnam is any indication, the firm is to implement a strategy which will “further monetize” the Xbox Live subscriber base “for holiday 2012.” Granted, this could mean anything from more paid-content options such as the recently added HBO Go, or as Joystiq points out, the firm could be finally doing away with MS Points – although that rumor was later refuted by Microsoft Switzerland. It could be anything, really, even different payment options or point cards, therefore, we’ll send a mail. Via Supererogatory.
