I'm betting this will lead to lots of new scams from 0G accounts. Gift me this game for nude pics, weapons grade plutonium, a nigerian prince or some other such nonsence laugh
It's more than just a game, it's a passion.

Some US cards here https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/gift-cards-points and https://www.offgamers.com/browse/game-card/consoles

Once region is changed on console you can add to your main account.

Used the same. 100% works.
I wish Amazon.co.uk had some. I wish at the same time cause I've noticed the XBox One shows how much money in £££ & $$$ is stored on the associated account, that you could just buy a £££ Card as an example and then get the XBox One to conver it to $$$. Then boom... happy days.
Check Amazon.com. The UK Amazon probably won't have US dollar gift cards. You can use the same account for US Amazon as UK. I know that because I have bought US gift cards from Amazon.com and physical games from Amazon.co.uk and even Amazon.de.

And I live in Finland. It accepts Finnish payment card just fine.

Finally! The marketplace still needs a lot of work, so additional features are welcome!

So the downside I believe is finding a way to pay $$$ to download it. I think it's OK if you use PayPal etc, but if your like me and you use the Gift Cards with the 25-Digit Code, you've got a problem as I don't think the UK & USA Gift Cards work among another.
You can redeem gift cards for any currency on your account. You can buy gift cards from microsoft.com, just change the region to the currency you want.
USD = https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/d/xbox-digital-gift-ca...
CAD = https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/store/d/xbox-digital-gift-ca...

http://account.microsoft.com/ tracks all your different currency balances.

Don't bash me here but I think they are trying Steams tactic which if amazing!

It not only allows people to send game for like birthdays or what not but also helps with Game Giveaways because they can send it directly to their accounts!

It should've happened ages ago as it might bring some sales up, ya don't know

sweet, now i can gift someone a 60$ game instead of just giving them 10$ to go buy it somewhere else at the non microsoft price.
Exactly. Great idea in theory but ultimately it looks like another feature that'll be useless for most people who actually compare game prices between the xbox store and other retailers.
I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

With this, refunds and the smaller changes they have made recently I feel like a big overhaul is coming, which will be good because it is sorely needed.

Would be better if i could gift game licence of game i no longer play.. take off me and give to someone else.. instead of buying it for them.. i would rather just give them the money to get a game instead of going through the hassle of sending it and them redeeming it..
I second this. Then we can form a grop of 10 people and pay only one 10th of the price of an ID game and when one person finishes the game they'll gift the license to the next one. I like your thinking.
Yeah, not going to happen! laugh

Which is basically what happens already.
My posts are often sarcastic.

Physical copies will soon be a thing of the past, probably next gen, hence why the publishers not microsoft except when they are the publisher, have full control over digital pricing are playing hardball with digital pricing on console now.
