Now gift PC games to your near and dear ones.
In a recent announcement by Microsoft, the company has offered its users to gift digital PC games and other downloadable stuff through its online store for Windows 10. This has led to the availability of all the Xbox One games for digital gifting.
John Smith, Sr. Director, Microsoft Store Product Marketing, elaborated more on PC digital game gifting,
“Last Fall, the Microsoft Store enabled gifting of select Xbox One digital games, Xbox One downloadable game content (durables only), and Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions. This feature has been a huge hit with our fans and has made buying presents for friends and family even easier, especially around the holidays.”
“Today, we’re excited to announce that we have expanded digital gifting to include PC games and PC downloadable game content (e.g. map packs, skins). Further, all Xbox One games are now eligible for digital gifting.”
The new move is on the same line of last fall when Microsoft allowed its users to digitally gift some Xbox One digital games, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions.
A few significant reminders:
Microsoft has played well by offering discounted games on its platform, as it will temp and push gamers to buy the products, which will ultimately benefit the company. 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. But the only downside looks to be the bar of 10 games that may disappoint many people.
So, get set to make the most out of Microsoft’s gaming world.
