Digital Game Gifting Is Not Far Away For The Xbox One

We all have that mate on Xbox Live who never has the games that you want to play. There you are dying to play the latest shooter with the guy who makes playing games more fun, but there they are being all adult like spending money on things such as rent and food like a total jerk.

Fear not, as it seems that digital game gifting is soon on the way, with Xbox VP Mike Ybarra answering a question about this from a Xbox One owner just yesterday. When one Twitter follower asked how far off are we from getting the ability to gift a new purchase for a friend, Mike answered with the following.
No messing about there by Mike, but also not far could mean anything from next month to the end of the year. Is gifting something you would use? Let me know in comments below or over on Twitter/Facebook.
