Xbox 360 to get Paypal Support

Sources coming in from Joystiq (internal documents) has practically confirmed that the upcoming update for the Xbox 360 on May 19th 2011 will include paypal support for the marketplace.

This is a huge step in the right direction, one of which I would hope that Sony and Nintendo plans to follow especially after Sony’s servers were hacked and personal information was compromised.

With paypal support, people now can pay for their transaction out of their own bank accounts with no need for credit cards or Microsoft Point Cards.

I wonder if this means that Microsoft will drop the point system in the future and following Nintendo and Sony with charging games by currency.
