Origin - Purchase as a gift
« on: December 04, 2016, 02:35:53 PM »
Hi

Didn't see this anywhere, or I'm just not looking properly through this flu-haze, but, has anyone else noticed that Origin Beta now has the option "Purchase as a gift" on games in your Library?!? This opens an entire realm of possibilities!

I hope you feel better soon, Mags :).  I did notice, and I think that will make it easier for more people to get more Sims packs!

Thanks, I feel like death right now, and the fact that it is 3am here and I haven't slept yet, is not helping lol coughs and colds and stuff suck!

I wonder whether they will have a Regional lock on the gifting? Or whether it'll be like TS3 where you could gift anyone, anywhere, stuff from the Store

You can only gift to people in the same country as yourself. Maybe Origin will change this but that is the limitation on it right now. Get well soon, it's the pits when you feel like that.

Bri's post on gifting in Origin - Link below:

Also, Play is correct - Players in different countries can't gift to others that are in different countries - at this time.
