Microsoft extends its Xbox Digital Game Gifting Facility to All its Consumers

In October of this year, Microsoft decided to open the flood gates to its digital gift giving service for games on the Xbox One. The consumers could visit the Xbox Store and choose an Xbox One game which they could then send digitally in the form of a gift.

The only proviso was that this amenity was limited to Xbox Insiders. However, now this facility has been extended to all Xbox users. There are still a few conditions which apply though. A couple of titles cannot be gifted. Also Xbox 360 or original Xbox games cannot be sent as gifts.

Another ban that has been instituted is on pre-release titles. The games which are gifted must be in the open and available to all consumers. The gifted games can be shipped all over the country but there are regional differences with regard to the types of games which can be sent.

Take DLC. It can be gifted but currency and loot boxes do not count in this equation. Those games which are on sale also have restrictions placed on them.

The service is subject to several strictures. Last but not least, no refunds are applicable on the games. This might be somewhat of a letdown but that is just the way it is and nothing can be done about it.
