    Having problems purchasing Minecraft Java and Bedrock for a relative who lives abroad in...


    I'm living in Spain, but have relatives in the Philippines, I'm trying to buy Minecraft Java and Bedrock for my younger cousin in the Philippines, and for that I've gone to:

    https://www.xbox.com/en-PH/games/store/minecraft-java-bedrock-edition-for-pc/9NXP44L49SHJ/0010 because I've read that games are region locked.

    I choose the version of the game I want, then click the 3 dots on the side and select "buy as gift". Then I enter his Microsoft account email in the "sending gift to" section, and my name in the other box "sender name". The next step's window is this: "Add profile address" I don't click on add profile address (when I do it takes me to the same next page) and just click next, so it takes me to the next next step: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1C5ecugHEDQjrB5EMc1TSnI8zsPQHzKA3/view?usp=sharing but as you can see here:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Le2JIr87GyH5KDVQzddEIw2g3KaU0NLV/view?usp=sharing

    the country on this address page is locked to the Philippines, but it wants my address. I don't live in the Philippines so how do I buy this for my cousin?

    Btw this is the most complicated and convoluted way to purchase something in history. Just take my money.

    :)

    Unfortunately Microsoft does not disclose the specific reasons.

    I'm glad the information was helpful, have a great day.

    Hello!

    I'm a Independent Advisor. I will be glad to help you.

    I understand your frustration, unfortunately it is not possible to buy a game as a gift from another country, the buyer and the person receiving the game must be in the same country.

    The only viable option is to give him the money the game costs somehow and have him make the purchase from his own account.

    Best regards.

    The internet is not international when it comes to copyright and the ability to distribute things

    For example, in Europe, 6 different companies own the rights to Lord of the Rings

    Another example: GTA and COD are distributed by Capcom in Japan, not Rockstar/Activision, and they need to make sure Japanese purchases go to them

    Well thank you for your reply, at least you've saved me the rest of the afternoon of headaches with trying different methods, I tried going to Minecraft.net too but that didn't work. That's really annoying, I wonder why they've set it like that. The internet is supposed to be international. This is so unnecessarily complicated.

    But yeah thank you for answering.

    Syncing Purchases to PC from Console

    Hi ID, my name is Oskayra and I will be happy to help you.

    No, if you purchase Minecraft Bedrock on PS4 and link your Microsoft account with your PS4 account, it will not sync the purchase with the accounts. Minecraft Bedrock purchases are tied to the platform on which they are made. If you purchase Minecraft Bedrock on PC, you will only be able to play it on PC. If you purchase Minecraft Bedrock on PS4, you will only be able to play it on PS4.

    However, there is an exception to this rule. If you buy Minecraft Java Edition on PC, you will also be able to play Minecraft Bedrock on your mobile device. This is because Minecraft Java Edition and Minecraft Bedrock are compatible with the "Minecraft Live" feature.

    If you just want to play the Minecraft you paid for on your PC, you don't need to buy Minecraft Bedrock for PS4. You can download the free version of Minecraft: Java Edition from the Minecraft website.

    Here are some steps to download the free version of Minecraft: Java Edition:

    Visit the Minecraft website.
    Click on the "Download Minecraft" button.
    Select "Minecraft: Java Edition".
    Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the download.
    Once you have downloaded Minecraft: Java Edition, you will be able to play it on your PC.

    I hope my answer was helpful and clarified your doubts. do not hesitate to contact me if you have any other problem. have a nice day.
