Microsoft Now Allows You To Gift Games And DLCs On PC”

Starting today, games can be gifted through the Microsoft Store on any Windows 10 or Xbox One device, as well as the official Microsoft Store website.

After the Microsoft Store received gifting of select titles and service this past Autumn, the company has rolled out the feature to include all digital Xbox and PC titles. That said, Xbox does have an edge over rival PSN in this regard, having enabled gifting some Xbox One digital titles last Fall. They are often very passionate about the games they love and, more often than not, are inclined to gift their friends a copy to spread the joy around. This person then receives a code as well as instructions on how to redeem the item, while Xbox One users will receive a system message with a redemption button. However when it comes to gifting full purchases, there are obviously no limits.

Over the years, digital gifting has been one of the top asks from our fans. According to Microsoft, it seems that this feature has been popular amongst Xbox gamers, so much so that they've made a decision to extend it to the Microsoft Store as well. Xbox One users can also choose a Gamertag.

A dialog box will open up asking for the email address of the recipient you would like to gift the game.

Go to the Microsoft Store on your Windows 10, Xbox One or online and find the product you want to gift. If the content you want to gift is on sale, you can only purchase two games or items as gifts in a 14-day period.

In addition, it is not possible to give away Xbox 360 and Xbox Original games, as well as virtual reserves or coins. Have you gifted someone an Xbox game or subscription in the past?

Gift recipients can only redeem gift tokens in the country or region where they were purchased.

Microsoft says it will continue to work on implementing digital gifting for more / new content types.
