Microsoft Extends Digital Game Gifting to the PC

PC digital game gifting is now available in the Microsoft Store, Microsoft today confirmed.

Thanks to the "huge hit" with Xbox fans, especially around festive periods, Microsoft has implemented gifting for PC digital games and DLCs.

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

Enter the email address of the gift recipient.

Many PC games are available for gifting today, May 10, and all games should be available for gifting by Friday, May 11.

Digital game gifting is a really useful feature, which means you can purchase a game and gift to someone else easily which is now also available on PC by Microsoft.

United Kingdom urges USA not to 'hinder' Iran nuclear deal work
During the session, some parliamentarians mounted the podium to set copies of the nuclear deal and the US flag on fire. Mnuchin said he didn't expect oil prices to rise sharply, forecasting that other producers will step up production.

The recipient will receive a redeemable code enabling them to download and install the game on whichever compatible platform (Windows 10 and/or Xbox One). Unfortunately, gifting of Xbox 360, Xbox original, free games, pre-orders, as well as "consumable downloadable game content" such as virtual currency and power ups, is unavailable.

Go to the Microsoft Store on your Windows 10, Xbox One or online and find the product you want to gift.

There are one or two small restrictions - you can only buy two of any discounted game and only ten discounted products total every 14 days, presumably to stop discount scalping and resale.

The recipient can only redeem game codes in the country or region in which they were purchased. Additionally, you can not gift pre-orders or consumable DLC such as in-game currency. We are hard at work on improving digital gifting, adding new capabilities as well as support for new content types.

At any rate, it's definitely a start and the company is continuing to update the program, including working on the ability to gift paid Xbox and PC apps as well.
