"Microsoft has added Bitcoin support to Microsoft accounts. Bitcoin funds can be added to accounts to enable digital purchases from the Windows, Windows Phone, Xbox Games, Xbox Music, and Xbox Video stores.Xbox, Windows Store now accepting Bitcoin payments | Ars Technica
Bitcoin support is currently limited to adding fixed dollar amounts to accounts; there's no direct purchase option.
