Microsoft local currency pricing on Xbox Marketplace items an 'error'
Microsoft states local currency options on the Xbox Marketplace that showed up yesterday were a "display error." SaveandQuitGaming caught the real money options early in the day, which also appeared on the European marketplace as well.

"Today, a few Avatar items appeared with an option to purchase with local currency, instead of Microsoft Points," a company spokesperson told Joystiq. "This display error doesn't signal a change in payment options, but rather an error in how the offers were configured in our services which resulted in an inconsistent experience. It is in the process of being resolved."

Initially it appeared this conversion was the beginning of the rumor from earlier this year that Microsoft would do away with its space bucks in favor of real currency. But, that simply seems to not be the case at this time.
