Are points important?

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

By that I mean - are they involved with money? I remember reading at the store page that in the future people will be able to redeem prizes with their points such as PC hardware.Will it be stuff like RAM and HDD?

    You can sell and buy points on the community, they don't really hold a direct value but can be valuable for some people.

    Right now there is no direct conversion, however it is planned for the future. However, you can always trade points with other members for games, merchandise, services etc..

    The more points you have (or have had in the past, conveniently) the more handsome of a person you are

    This question basically applies to any currency. As long as people are willing to trade services or resources in exchange for that currency, then yes it is important if you want what those people are offering.
