Microsoft has had an excellent generation, at least from the consumer’s perspective. Despite being rocked by Sony’s PlayStation 4 in terms of sales, the company has made numerous shifts in the way Microsoft sees Xbox as a whole. From enabling cross-play to introducing monthly gaming subscriptions, Microsoft has done what the community loves.
PC gamers have had the ability to buy and gift digital games to their friends for quite a while now. At least for gamers who buy their games from Steam. Microsoft has recently announced that you could now do the same on the Xbox One family of consoles too. You can buy games for your friend and gift it to your friend at the time of purchase which is really handy. If you gift Unravel 2, which is a title developed by the folks at EA, you would get two months of EA access for free too which is a no-brainer. EA access subscriptions run at a fix $4.99 fee per month and would give you access to the best titles developed by EA without any additional costs.
This move has simply added itself into Microsoft’s biggest changes this generation. While not revolutionary, I’m sure everyone would appreciate this feature to say the least.
