Mike Ybarra Releases More Info On Xbox One’s Game Gifting Feature

Xbox One's Game Gifting feature

With the impending release of Xbox One’s game gifting feature, so many questions have yet to be answered. With information hanging in the balance, fans don’t know what exactly is on the way for their preferred console. Some insiders already have their hands on the function, so it can be safe to assume that the general public could be seeing it in the near future. Xbox and Windows Gaming Platform Corporate Vice President Mike Ybarra has recently taken to Twitter to expand upon what is already known.

First, it appears that any games that are gifted with the feature won’t have any expiration dates. Did your friend just pick up Super Mario Odyssey, meaning they won’t even be looking at their Xbox One for the foreseeable future? Go ahead and send them something! It’ll be waiting for them upon their return to the console.

Ybarra even Tweeted about re-gifting. If you were unlucky enough to not notice that a friend already owns a title, but still send it to them, there are a couple options. First, the recipient of your generosity can turn around and re-gift it to somebody else entirely. If this is not suitable for the situation, the recipient can “have the purchaser get a refund”.

Even though Xbox One’s game gifting feature is only in the testing phase, it sounds like it will be a hit among users. No word has been released as to when the program will arrive for the general public, but one can assume t will be in next couple weeks.
