Home » Game Gifting & Store Wishlist will soon arrive on PC and Xbox One

Gamers, brace yourselves, as Xbox Corporate Vice President Mike Ybarra confirmed one of the most frequently requested features in Xbox’s history: game gifting!

Game gifting to be available soon

You’ll get the opportunity of game gifting someone really soon during the feature’s preview period. In a video from the Xbox Q&A session at PAX West, the Xbox team was asked about the status of both game gifting and wishlists. Ybarra stated that one of these features is on its way and will reach us very soon, but it didn’t seem like the team was allowed to say which one exactly. The other feature is supposed to be still on the list of things the team needs to get to as well. In other words, this other feature is not in the development process yet.

The first feature, game gifting, is currently in Windows Store builds and is already being sent out to Windows Insiders. It’s related to both purchasing and accessing your gifts. On the other hand, nothing is floating around related to the other feature, the wish list.

It’s not certain yet when digital game gifting will be available, but we have a feeling it won’t take too long. Who knows: maybe it reaches us by the end of the year. Windows Insiders in Skip Ahead will wait for this less than most Xbox Insiders.

We also expect digital gifting will not only be limited to games. We assume that we’ll also receive the ability to gift paid apps and maybe even music and movies. Of course, none of this is still officially confirmed, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed!
