  • New Xbox One games update could end up costing you a fortune

The company which enabled this feature for Xbox One users a year ago is now bringing the same feature to all Windows 10 users who download, install and play games from the Microsoft Store. The "select Xbox One games" gifting limitation is also being relaxed to include all Xbox One digital games going forward.

You'll be saving $60 here, which you can spend on a game or two, depending on how deeply they're discounted.

With the resurgence of PC gaming, it's great that Microsoft is offering this feature so that family members and friends can gift PC games for the holiday or birthdays. Fortunately, if you run into bugs like I did, you can also gift games via the Microsoft Store website, which behaves as expected. This limit is applicable only for gifts on discounted rates but not for products which are available at their full price. The recipient must be on your Xbox Live friends list. For some reason, you can not gift more than two discounted items within a 14 day period. Though all Xbox One and PC games (along with DLC) are available for gifting, Xbox 360 games, Xbox originals, pre-orders, and consumable DLC (like in-game currency) are not. Now, all Xbox One games qualify for digital gifting.

Ex-Malaysian PM Razak, wife banned from leaving country
"I have been informed that the Malaysian Immigration Department has prohibited me and my family from travelling overseas ". The ex-leader's wife is hugely unpopular, due to her imperious manner and a reported love of luxury shopping trips.

One of the first games you might want to gift is State of Decay 2. The Xbox One X is powerful console that's worth the investment for owners of 4K TVs.

There are also some rules to keep in mind as mentioned below. Finally, the recipient of the gift must be in the same region as the gift-giver. Now we just wait until E3 to see what games Xbox has in store for us.

"We're hard at work on exciting plans for E3, from what will be a great briefing filled with new games to the fan experience at the Microsoft Theater".
