PayPal payments come to Xbox 360. Can Windows Phone be far behind?

Here’s some Xbox 360 news that may be relevant to Windows Phone users as well. The latest Xbox 360 system update, in addition to introducing a new disc format to fight piracy, will also add PayPal payment functionality to most territories. Gamers will now be able to purchase Xbox 360 software, downloadable content, and Xbox Live Gold Memberships with PayPal in addition to the existing options: credit cards, prepaid cards, and prepaid codes. The update will also bring an auto-standby feature that puts the console into a low-power mode after an hour of idle time (yay!).

Windows Phone users are still waiting for the option to pay for software with Microsoft Points, which has long been the standard currency on the Xbox 360. At present, credit card payments and adding purchases to the user’s monthly cell phone bill are the only ways to pay. As far as I know, Microsoft has never said anything on the subject. But even if Microsoft Points purchases never come to Windows Phone, PayPal is still fairly likely as it’s similar to credit cards on Microsoft’s end. Let’s hope they don’t drag their feet on bringing us more payment options!

I hope at least MS Points will be supported on WP7 soon!I got £50 worth of Points for free when I got my second WP7 (HTC HD7 from O2) and I cannot use them for anything... I don't like downloadable music (I buy CDs instead) and the only thing I purchased so far is a fancy T-shirt for my XBox Live avatar, he-he.

I thought you could buy apps on Zune? Anyway, if you can't do that just download some albums and burn CDs. Letting those points go to waste makes no sense. I don't see points coming to WP7.

I hope they do either as im one of the few who dont have a credit card and im not getting on so buying stuff from the market place doesnt happen for me :(

You can't have apps billed to your phone bill? That is how it works with AT&T in the states.
