Xbox One S and Xbox One X are Both on Sale

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

Larry "MajorNelson" Hyrb, Xbox Live Director announced the new update that affects all Windows 10 PC and Xbox One games purchased through the Microsoft Store. That changes starting today as digital gifting has been expanded to include PC games and DLC, as well as all Xbox One games. The company announced that the Windows 10 users will now be able to purchase games as gifts for their friends and family directly from the Microsoft Store. Also, there are limits if a product is discounted, so you can only buy two of the same discounted product, or 10 discounted products in total, over the course of two weeks. 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.

It's also important to note that you can't gift games you've already purchased. The Microsoft Store still has a long way to go if it wants to be a true Steam competitor, but implementing features like game gifting certainly can't hurt.

Sending someone a game gift can be done using Windows 10, any Xbox One, or in a web browser. Just in case you are not in a mood to make a stockpile of games, option of buying two games in the span of 14 days looks quite cool. That should help in deciding whether gifting a subscription to the Xbox Game Pass is worth it or not. On Xbox One, you can send via Gamertag.

The Imam also revealed that on the second day the husband tried to rape her, she stabbed him to death. Groups such as Equality Now are writing to Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to plead for clemency.

Microsoft has also posted a useful guide to getting started with digital gifting.

Last but not least, gifts can be redeemed only in the country or region where it was bought. Xbox 360 and original Xbox games can't be gifted at all.

"We're hard at work on exciting plans for E3, from what will be a great briefing filled with new games to the fan experience at the Microsoft Theater".
