  1. Gift digital games so games we no longer want are not wasted


    I'm sure this probably wasn't already talked about but I think it is worth bringing up again if it was. Why can't we have the ability to gift digital games that we have in our collection that we no longer want/play? I have been with Xbox since day 1 and I have so many games that I no longer play that I know both my kids, who are now of age, or friends would love to play. I know when we get refunds for games the games disappear from our game inventory so why can't we have the option to gift our games and then once the person claims it remove it from our inventory? This would allow for all those great games that we no longer want to play to continue to be played by others. I know a lot of people who won't go digital because of this reason alone so if this was an option that I think more people would be willing to switch to digital.



    You can put a limit on how many times a game can be gifted if you wanted so it isn't abused or you can put a time limit on how long a person would need to wait before regifting a game that was gifted to them. I just think it is silly because I have over 200+ digital games that I know my boys would love to play but can't because we can't afford to buy them again and they are on my account and not theres.



    Please look into this option because you all are doing great things with XBOX and I know this would be something great that the community would love to have!

    Buying Games for Xbox ONE S DIGITAL

    So if someone wants to get a gift for my son who has the xbox 1s all digital, could they buy a Microsoft gift card? And then we load that so he can get whatever game he wants?

    transfer redeem gift card

    That would be a good idea, instead of gifting a digital game to someone you could just gift a digital gift card to them. That way if they change their mind about a game on their wishlist. Then they will just have the money and they could buy whatever
    they wanted.

    Family Plan! Reason I'm buying

    You can do that as well without having to swap disc. They are allowing you to gift your digital games to anyone that has been on your friends list longer than 30 days, the friend can not give it back though. So there is an option for sharing and for gifting.

    Hey there Holly!

    Where did it say that you are able to gift them through the store?

    Currently it is impossible to gift people money that has been redeemed on one account to another aside from buying a gift card and giving them the accompanying pre-paid code so they can enter it into their account manually.

    We have information on all the things currently that can be gifted between accounts on the pages here at

    Hope this information was helpful.

    Thanks!

    How do you pre-order digital game copies?

    Also gifting digital games is a MUST needed option...if i want to buy 4 digital copies and give them out to 4 friends then I should be able to..or if I hate a digital game and there ISNT a needed trade in/resell button then its MY right to be able to gift
    that same game(code and all) to a friend...why can we not have that option? Please tell me why I cant gift something I bought...love to read you defend corporate anti-consumerism more.
