Coinstar machines to start dishing out Xbox Live codes

Gamers will soon be able to convert all their loose change into Xbox Live credit in the US.

Polygon reports that digital payment company Rixty is working with Microsoft to allow consumers to use Coinstar vending machines to receive credit for Microsoft’s console marketplace.

Users will be able to claim back either XBL Gift Cards worth between $5 and $100 or XBL Gold Memberships.

"Rixty is already an established alternative payment platform for online games, and we’re proud to be selected as one of the few approved Xbox Live Gift Card and Gold Membership wholesalers," Rixty CEO Ted Sorom stated.

"By expanding our channels to non-traditional resellers such as loyalty and incentive programs, we’re giving these partners access to lucrative new products and consumers more convenient ways to obtain their favourite entertainment content."
