    Hello, xdkasss. Thanks for reaching out! My name is Lucas, and I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be happy to assist you today.

    If you go to your account purchase history, can you see your Sea of Thieves purchase there showing as completed? See if it's there and let me know:

    https://account.microsoft.com/billing/orders

    Make sure you select the period to more than 6 months to see your order.

    Buying games that I already own

    Hi!

    Each game purchased both X360 and X1 is associated with the account. Check to use the same account. You can find the list of games purchased on the console in the "Ready
    to Install
    " section.

    Hey ElCaBo02! Is there another gamertag on the console that may own GTA instead? Check

    Cannot buy a game as a gift if I already own it?

    Once the game releases, you should be able to buy it as a gift. They just don't allow the gift option on pre-orders.
