Leaked Image Shows Microsoft's New Xbox Accessibility Controller

Microsoft Store Users Can Now Send PC Games as Digital Gifts

If this holds up to be true, this will be yet another way for Microsoft to showcase how they've been working to make gaming and Xbox more inclusive for everyone.

One of the most requested features for the Xbox One's digital storefront was being able to gift games to your friends. Now, Microsoft has removed these restrictions and users can now gift all Xbox One and Microsoft Store PC games digitally.

Put away the gift cards and chocolates - we all know what we'd really like for our special days, videogames. Well, the gifting is pretty simple tough.

For Xbox owners, they'll receive a system notification with a message that has a clickable redemption button.

However, it looks like the new Xbox One controller looks a lot like the old school Nintendo NES gamepad which, even though is not considered a comfortable one, has gone down in the history of gaming as an iconic one. And you can only send two gifts every two weeks, for some reason. Full priced gift purchases have no restrictions on them, though.

Now the way it works is that it doesn't auto-send the game to your friend's inventory, nor does it auto-download it to their digital library.

Gifting of Xbox 360 and Xbox original games, pre-orders, free products, and consumable downloadable game content such as virtual currency is not allowed. You can only gift games to people in the same region as you - no sending games to your cousin overseas.
