    Gifting Windows 8 store apps?

    Are you able to buy and gift a game from the Windows 8 store to another Windows 8 user? The new Halo Spartan Assault shooter game comes out for windows 8 next month and I'm going to pay my friend and have him gift the game to me, is that possible, if so how do you do it?

    Hello Halo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Apps are owned by the Microsoft account that purchased them, and cannot be transferred as far as I know.

    If you like, you could have your friend sign into the Store with your Microsoft account and purchase the game app to have it always owned by your Microsoft account.
    Hope this helps,
