Digital stores make it very easy for people to gift items to whoever they want,whenever they want. However, this is a feature that’s missing from both the Xbox and Windows stores for some reason.
This means that millions of gamers who rely on these digital stores can’t gift games to others. Well, this is about to change.
Microsoft has now confirmed that gifting will soon be live for the Xbox store. The ability to gift games will also bring the ability to create wishlists. Xbox Director of Programming Major Nelson and Xbox Platform CVP Mike Ybarra talked about game gifting and wishlists in a conversation at PAX West. We don’t know the exact release time frame for these features but they said that at least one of these new features will be released “very soon.”
It is about time and many gamers have been waiting for this. Especially with the holiday season approaching, That is the time of the year when people are in the mood to gift items. This is a great way for Microsoft to welcome the holiday season by allowing millions of gamers on its platform to gift games digitally using the Xbox and Windows 10 Store. It is coming.
