You can now gift PC games on the Microsoft Store

While you can gift all PC games and PC download game content available on the Microsoft store, there are some limitations to be aware off, such as the fact that digital gifting is now region-locked. From there, you can enter the email address of the gift recipient, who will receive the present as a Microsoft Store code.

Last year, Microsoft enabled digital gift giving for select Xbox titles and subscriptions using the Microsoft Store. For a complete rundown of the terms, conditions, regulations and all that, head over to the Xbox Wire.

In a recent announcement by Microsoft, the company has offered its users to gift digital PC games and other downloadable stuff through its online store for Windows 10. Microsoft announced today that digital PC games in the Microsoft Store and downloadable content are now eligible for gifting.

What do you think about digital game gifting?

After you send the gift the recipient gets a game code along with instructions to redeem the code and get the game/DLC.

First Teaser Trailer for 'The Predator' Has Landed
Black has also found roles for Moonlight's Trevante Rhodes , Key & Peele's Keegan-Michael Key, Black Panther's Sterling K. Look , we're gonna level with you: The Predator franchise hasn't been that great since our film editor hit kindergarten.

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. As well, the inability to gift pre-orders is an odd stipulation as well, especially considering some games have pre-order bonuses or editions with extra goodies.

Click on the "Buy as gift" button under the price. For example, you can only buy two discounted products - and a total of 10 discounted products - every 14 days. In case you're a insane person, you also can't gift a game that is already free.

Digital game gifting is a really useful feature, which means you can purchase a game and gift to someone else easily which is now also available on PC by Microsoft.

You also won't be able to gift Xbox 360 or Xbox Original titles, nor will you be able to gift virtual currency.
