One of the biggest fan requests on Xbox is finally coming to players in the coming weeks.
Starting today, Xbox Insiders can start gifting games to friends. After Insiders test the feature over the next couple weeks, the Xbox platform team will roll out the feature to all users. The announcement came from Corporate Vice President of Xbox Mike Ybarra’s Twitter:

As shown in Ybarra’s tweet, the gifting option will be integrated within the Xbox Marketplace so friends can send each other digital copies of games. Players can give gifts to friends based on email accounts or simply by selecting them from the Friends tab. Once the game is gifted, the receiver will get a message from Xbox Live that says who the gift is from and display a redeemable code.
Xbox Insiders can look for the feature to become available later today, and everyone else will see game gifting become available in the coming weeks.
