Currently when I use the next_posts_link and previous_posts_link functions I get a URL returned such as /posts/page/2.

However, is it possible to make Wordpress work with a pagination URL format such as /posts?page=2 instead?

Why would you want that? Both URLs contain the same info ad the first one is considered to be more user and search engine friendly. – ZweiBlumen Dec 3 '11 at 7:36
Additionally, note that the query var would use & and not ? because the URL is already using a query string, it's just masked by the URL rewriting. +1 to the above comment though, totally agree. – t31os Dec 3 '11 at 13:29
