Microsoft Store Users Can Now Send PC Games as Digital Gifts

According to the publisher, Microsoft has sold just shy of 30 million Xbox One consoles so far this generation.

Microsoft promises additional expansion into other forms of gifting in the future, including paid-for PC and Xbox One applications.

Would this controller transform the gaming experiences of someone you know? Microsoft has enabled gifting on its storefront, making it possible to send games through to anyone you like - as long as you have their email address. On Xbox One, gift recipients will receive a system message with a clickable redemption button.

What will you be gifting?

Microsoft's digital gifting is really a great feature if you want to gift a game from Microsoft store digitally to any of your friends. The gift will be sent as a code, which can be redeemed by clicking a button.

When you gift an item to someone on Steam, you proceed to select to purchase the game and then during checkout you can choose to purchase it as a gift for someone. There are no limits for gift purchases made at full price.

The expanding gifting options are already available to use, so go mad sending your friends and family new games to play this weekend. You can't buy more than two discounted products at once, or more than 10 total discounted products within a 14 day period. So if you were hoping to gift some Aussie gamers a banned title, by purchasing it from the North American storefront, think again.
