    Can I get someone who gifted me a game specifically for Xbox when I am on PC and can't play it?


    I was gifted a game that is specifically for Xbox, and doesn't work on PC. I was hoping I could get the person who sent me the game a refund since they spent their money on a game I can't play. I am unable to even see the game on PC. Is this possible? Thank you.

    :)

    The recipient (you) can give the code to someone else to redeem. Or, you can ask them to return the item for a refund.

    The recipient can't return or exchange the gift code.

    To return the item for a refund, go to your order history page, find the item, and select Refund information.

    Order history (https://account.microsoft.com/billing/orders/)

    Important You must request a refund for an unredeemed code within 14 days of making the purchase. If the code has been redeemed, we're unable to process a refund, even if it's within 14 days of purchase. For more info, see:

    Change your store region

    Hello Jesse, thank you for reply and advice ! I am sorry, but can you be little more specific with "a gift card of the subscription with the "Worldwide" tag" I got xbox just few days and I'm afraid that i didn't get this. My friend is in Argentina, he gave me some game codes as a gift, but when I tried to buy some gifts in console store for him I get same issues with region. Also I've tried to buy gift on xbox store from PC and get the same error.

    I think the main trouble is in currency of my debit card, because address of my microsoft account and region of store are the same. Is "a gift card of the subscription with the "Worldwide" tag" means that somewhere I can buy gift codes with no issues?

    Troubles synchronizing

    Hello.

    For the logged into Microsoft store and Xbox app, yeahs, I am logged in those. And in this case is Minecraft.

    Thing is, I didn't buy the game, it was a gift from a friend, but it got linked into my account, since I used my very microsoft account to log in into the Xbox and Microsoft accounts. I don't understand pretty much that, it was a very long time ago and as
    I said, there was someone who installed the game into my old PC.

    But yeah, I had the official game, I played the Windows 10 version no problem, and now I got this new PC after the old one stopped working, and now that I am trying to log in it doesn't allow me. There is the Log in button when I am running the program,
    but directly send me to buy it, when I already had it.

    Seniors - Looking for Senior Xbox Live Members to Play With!

    I have played with some people older than myself. I am 33 and there is nothing wrong with someone older than me playing a game. I watched some guy on Twitch who was 64 playing a game which I thought was cool. My wife tells me I am to old to play video
    games and boy does it make her mad when I can show her someone who is older than me still playing games.
