Microsoft Still Accepts Bitcoin, Apologizes For 'Inaccurate Information' 25

An anonymous reader writes: In December 2014, Microsoft added Bitcoin as a payment option, courtesy of Bitcoin processor BitPay, for a variety of its gaming and mobile content. On Saturday, a simple message titled "Microsoft Store doesn't accept Bitcoin" was spotted on Microsoft's website, and naturally some interpreted that as meaning support for the digital currency had ended. We asked Microsoft for clarification, but the company only got back to us [Monday] — with an explanation that it was all a mistake.

    Someone at Microsoft took the time to put this together and post it. No one took it down immediately. So, I don't think it's a mistake other than a typical Microsoft "mistake" where they undo an action that they hoped would not receive blow back. There has been too many of these from MS lately. These guys need to bring in more quality control people.
