Microsoft Extends PC Games To Its Digital Gifting Program

Share

As of this week, however, Microsoft are now allowing players to gift all Xbox One games, plus PC Games on the Windows Store and PC downloadable content such as map packs or skins.

Microsoft's service for gifting games to friends is finally getting the full roll-out, and is now compatible with PC games, PC DLC and all Xbox One Games. That said, Xbox does have an edge over rival PSN in this regard, having enabled gifting some Xbox One digital titles last Fall.

That's not all, as users can also give away Xbox LIVE Gold memberships and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions.

Unlike Gallop, Vissel Kobe's head of player development Atsuhiro Miura moved to quash speculation linking his club to Iniesta. Many still believe Iniesta has more to give Barcelona , but he ensures his desire to leave is not financial.

You will need to know the recipient's email address (Windows 10) or Gamertag (Xbox One) to gift the game. "Many" of the PC games in the Store are available now for gifting, but all games will become available by tomorrow, Friday, May 11.

The gift recipient will receive a code for their product along with instructions on how to redeem the code.

Over the years, digital gifting has been one of the top asks from our fans.

Gift purchasers can only buy two discounted products - and a total of 10 discounted products - every 14 days. And lastly, but importantly in our small world, recipients can only redeem gift tokens in the country or region where they were purchased. As well, the inability to gift pre-orders is an odd stipulation as well, especially considering some games have pre-order bonuses or editions with extra goodies. Have you gifted someone an Xbox game or subscription in the past?

You also won't be able to gift Xbox 360 or Xbox Original titles, nor will you be able to gift virtual currency. We are hard at work on improving digital gifting, adding new capabilities as well as support for new content types.
