  • Microsoft expands Xbox One digital game gifting, adds PC games as well

After introducing a limited version of digital game gifting past year, Microsoft has expanded the service to incorporate all Xbox One games. Gift-purchasing is now available for all Windows 10 PC and Xbox One digital games.

Ideal for last minute gifts - or if you want a friend to join your online clan - Xbox One online gifting is limited to ten discounted games over a two week period.

Microsoft also confirmed that if users are looking to purchase gifts which are having a discounted price, then they are allowed a maximum of 10 purchases every 14 days. Just ahead of this year's expo, Microsoft is kicking off two weeks of deals on Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles starting this week.

343 Industries and The Coalition are 2 of the most important studios for Microsoft, so it would not surprise us if they are already working on new installments of their star franchises: Halo 6 and Gears of War 5, respectively.

To gift a game through the Windows 10 version of the Microsoft Store, simply browse to it and select the new Buy as gift option next to the purchase/play button.

Tiger Woods shoots 65, his lowest score at TPC Sawgrass
McIlroy's 74 on Friday means he only lasted two days at the tournament. "It looked like they were making birdies left and right". He finished at 8 over after an up-and-down second round that included six birdies, five bogeys and a double.

It apparently took a while to work out the kinks, but Microsoft is finally giving digital gifting the full roll out.

It's interesting the limit Microsoft is putting on discounted products as that's when most people would be more inclined to gift a game to a friend. Do keep in mind that the Gift Card is not redeemable for cash, so you'll have to spend it at Newegg.

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

The games and content of Xbox 360 are not available to be deemed. On the other hand, Microsoft confirmed that The Coalition is focused exclusively on Gears of War and recently a store leaked information that seems to indicate that the next installment will be revealed soon.
