All Xbox One Games Can Now Be Gifted; Feature Expands To PC

Microsoft announced today new sales on select Xbox One S and Xbox One X models. In addition, all Xbox One games available in the Microsoft Store are now eligible for gift giving as well.

Gift purchasers can buy only two discounted products and a total of ten discounted products every fourteen days. From there, you can enter the email address of the gift recipient, who will receive the present as a Microsoft Store code.

According to EA, Xbox One has indeed sold 29.4 million units, which is a very, very low result even for those among you who thought that the console hadn't sold that much in comparison with PS4 (that's officially at nearly 80 million). Similar to Steam, recipients can only redeem gifts in the country or region where they were purchased. The gift will be sent as a code, which can be redeemed by clicking a button.

There are a few things Microsoft says you'll need to keep in mind when gifting a game. Paid apps on both Xbox One and PC will also be coming in the future. Instead you simply have the ability to purchase a game as a gift instead of (or in addition to) buying it for yourself. Unsurprisingly, there's no limit to the number of full price gifts you can buy.

With the resurgence of PC gaming, it's great that Microsoft is offering this feature so that family members and friends can gift PC games for the holiday or birthdays. Many high-profile PC launches have suffered from download issues.

It's great to see that Microsoft is listening to its customers to provide what they want.

With all of the talk lately about what the next generation will bring regarding PlayStation 5 and whatever Microsoft has in store, it does have many wondering if the time is already up for this generation.

Are you excited to use this feature on PC?
