There has been a lot of talk the past few months about the introduction of Game Gifting on Xbox One. For many of us, having the ability to buy a game for a friends, help them out with their gold membership or ensure your clan all has the same DLC maps, involves a lot of stuffing around with PayPal and bank accounts. The introduction of Game Gifting alleviates this hassle.

Starting from today, members of Xbox Insiders have access to Game Gifting via the Microsoft store. This includes:

  • gifting of most digital Xbox One games
  • “durable” downloadable content (DLC) (map packs, weapon skins, etc.)
  • Xbox Live Gold
  • Xbox Game Pass

To make the purchase and gift to your friend simply locate the item in the store, select “Buy as Gift”, enter the Gamertag or email address of the person you wish to send it to, and you are done.

Exactly when this feature will be rolled out to everyone is not yet known however I would expect that we will likely see this in the November update which is great timing with Christmas just around the corner.

As for a bit about me, I'm honored to also be the Brand Manager at Serellan LLC, and the Clan Leader for a competitive Call of Duty clan - 0RSM. Other hobbies include the Rural Bush Fire Brigade, Roller Derby, playing video games, writing about video games, and oh yeah - playing video games! I have a strong belief that we have a responsibility to shape the mind sets of the youth entering the gaming industry through our own actions and the examples we set, and at RGM we put a strong focus on ensuring that we set the best example we can.
