You can now gift Xbox One games through the console's store, a feature that had previously only been available to preview program members.

Xbox program director Mike Ybarra confirmed the news last night on Twitter, advertising that the feature comes in time for Christmas gifting. When buying games on the Xbox One store, the option to gift the purchase to another Xbox Live user will be right there. Make sure to be aware what region the recipient is in, however, as you want to use the regional story to match whoever is receiving the gift.

Have a friend who spent all their money on the Xbox One X and needs software but hates physical games? Christmas shopping just got easier!

Our Take
Gifting should absolutely be an option on every single digital store. It's great that Microsoft has brought it to Xbox Live.
