    Buying a digital copy as a gift

    No, a game that is bought digitially in a specific counrty must be redeemed in that same country it was purchased. If you're looking to purchase a game for your friend, I would recommend purchasing a hard copy and mailing it over or sending a cash payment
    electronically so they can buy it digitally in their country.

    Suggestion: Allow retailers to sell digital codes

    Also allows people to give digital copies for gifts. I would prefer digital, but there is currently no way for my wife to buy that for me for Christmas/Birthday.

    Xbox One - can you buy a game for a friend?

    At this time you cannot gift digital copies of games to another user.

    As a sort of workaround you could, however, buy an Xbox Live Gift Card of equal value to the game and when they redeem that they could purchase the game.

    I was gifted a game and it says I own it but I have to buy it.

    The digital copy was gifted and the gifter is in the same region.
