Xbox One Game Gifting Feature Coming Soon

Xbox One game gifting is coming soon, meaning you’ll be able to buy digital games for your friends in the near future. Xbox’s corporate VP at Microsoft, Mike Ybarra, replied to a fan question regarding the feature on Twitter, stating it is “not far” off.

The Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch don’t currently offer the ability to buy digital games for other people, but it has been possible on Steam for some time.

In a separate Tweet, Ybarra said the Xbox team is “looking into” the ability to delete games from your achievements list for which you’ve earned no achievements, a feature that already exists on PS4.

In other Xbox news, it was announced yesterday that the platform’s big shooter exclusive, Halo 5, “will receive a game update to support true 4K with the release of Xbox One X later this year.” That means the latest Halo title will join a host of other games that are part of the Xbox One X Enhanced Program, which sees existing titles upgraded to take advantage of the new system’s 4K capabilities. Xbox One X launches November 7 and will cost US $500 / £450/ AU $650.

Xbox One’s exclusive lineup for the rest of the year includes Forza Motorsport 7, Sea of Thieves, and Crackdown 3. For more on those, check out our videos on how Sea of Thieves’ open world works or how Xbox One X improves Crackdown 3.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
