Xbox Game Gifting

With nearly 5000 votes on the Xbox User Voice site, Xbox Game Gifting may be on its way soon.

Yesterday, Mike Ybarra (Xbox Corporate VP) responded to a Twitter user who asked about the prospect of gifting games.

Currently, there are a couple ways of facilictating “gifting”. You can either add someone to your Microsoft Family and gift them money to buy a game, or simply PayPal or e-transfer money to them. However, some people aren’t comfortable with sending money online and would rather have the ability to gift a game to anyone on your friends list as you can on Steam.
