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.Not far!— Mike Ybarra (@XboxQwik) July 6, 2017
