Microsoft will announce Microsoft Points will be culled with the release of its next Xbox console, according to a report.

The Verge states that sources familiar with the matter said Points will be replaced with a new gift card system, similar to iTunes vouchers.

Regular transactions such as credit and debit cards will also be supported, and the new system will span all of Microsoft systems such as its Windows Store, Phone Store, and Xbox Live.
