    Repurchase a game as a gift

    Hi and thanks for reaching Microsoft Xbox gamer's community. My name is Josef.
    I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft Xbox user like you.

    Hope you're doing great today Ryan

    Yes, you can gift a game no matter if you already own it.
    You can do it using the Xbox.com website or the Microsoft store in your device

    You should be able to see a little gift or card icon next to the “install” or “you already own this” option
    If your not able to see it, select the little three dots button instead
    You should be able to see something live “purchase as gift”

    Rainbow a Six Siege Deluxe Edition

    In-game content does not always share and is usually only given to the person who bought the game. You could try refunding the purchase and then repurchasing the game as a gift for your brother or, if it's available, buy the missing content as a gift for
    him.

    Purchased on a deal was told to wait on refund deal no longer exists need help getting the games back I bought

    I recieved my refund already. Wanted to repurchase them so i can gift them. The last time i did not pirchase as a gift so i didnt have the codes. I coild not repurchase them at that moment because it said i already owned them.

    The thing with that is that the ubisoft workers i talked to said that it should’ve transfered because im on xbox.

    Gift received from friend in Canada

    Gifting through Xbox is region locked. Your friend would need to refund the purchase and repurchase from a site that sells US codes.
