You can now gift PC games on the Microsoft Store

No Caption Provided

Microsoft introduced game gifting on the Xbox One last October, and now the company is expanding the program to include PCs. Instead you simply have the ability to purchase a game as a gift instead of (or in addition to) buying it for yourself.

Talking to Variety, Microsoft has debunked such estimation, even though it's coming from a very close partner such as Electronic Arts, and claimed them "inaccurate" when it comes to defining how Xbox One is performing now.

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.

Xbox One's latest update might end up costing fans a fortune. Microsoft actually introduced the feature on Xbox One a year ago, but now the feature has come to the Windows Store on Windows 10.

Head over to the Microsoft Store on Windows 10, on the Xbox One family of devices, or online, navigate to the product that you would like to purchase, select Buy as Gift, and enter the email address of the gift recipient. Unsurprisingly, there's no limit to the number of full price gifts you can buy. Gift-purchasing is now available for all Windows 10 PC and Xbox One digital games. In case you're a insane person, you also can't gift a game that is already free. It was initially only possible on PC as consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One were lacking this now-essential feature used by many gamers.

You also won't be able to gift Xbox 360 or Xbox Original titles, nor will you be able to gift virtual currency. Soon, it says that it will announce gifting of paid PC and Xbox apps.

"We are hard at work on improving digital gifting, adding new capabilities as well as support for new content types".
