Default Purchase Microsoft Points With Your Phone... In Japan

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/05/docomo-to-suppo.html' target='_blank'>http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/05...o-to-suppo.html</a><br /><br /></div><img alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//dht/auto/1211906410.usr2.png" /><br /><br />What if filling up on <a target="_blank" href="http://points.microsoft.com/">Microsoft Points</a> was as easy as picking up your phone and having the cost added to your phone bill? That's how it is for <a target="_blank" href="http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/05/docomo-to-suppo.html">NTT DoCoMo users in Japan</a>, and hopefully, that's just a starting point.<br /><br />If Microsoft is working with other carriers to make this available around the world, great. If not, they probably should. A vast majority of Xbox Live Marketplace and Zune Marketplace users <a target="_blank" href="http://www.smh.com.au/news/technology/mobile-phone-users-top-33-billion/2008/05/25/1211653822824.html">probably have a mobile device</a> of some sort - some have their reasons against directly linking their Windows Live ID and credit card together, while others don't always want to make the trek to their local store to pick up one of the many Microsoft Points cards on offer, so this third option makes a lot of sense.
