Allow us to gift games to our friends!
It would be great to do exactly 2 things:
- View friend's wishlists.
- Buy games for my friends!
I just want to grant wishes man! C'mon. Take my money.
K. Thx. Bai!

I see that is possible to gift games now, but it still needs an upgrade. It shouldn't require knowing the persons email to gift them a game. I should be able to gift to anyone on my friends list. Sometimes gaming friends aren't knowing email address level friends. It should be like Stream where I can gift them a game, and if they never claim it, it is refunded.

Please implement this. I was just searching if you could gift a game from a friend's wishlist and came across this.
I just want to buy a game for a friend and surprise him.

this appears to be implemented, i gifted several games to family
OCOULS IF YOUR HEARING ME YOU GUYS ARE SUCH DUMB ***** JUST ******* DO IT THERES BENIFIT TO IT MOST PEOPLE GIFTING VR GAMES PROBALLY ALREADY HAS ONE IF THEY WANNA BUY MORE THEY HAVE TO DOUBLE PURCHACE IT ONE FOR THEM 1 FOR THEIR FRIEND STOP BEING ******* THOTS AND ******* LISTEN TO YOUR COMMUNITY
THis is so great
Yes! My friend has ironlights and I can’t get it and the only way for him to give me it is by visa gift cards.
I do this all the time on Steam, buying games for friends and they can directly install them. Such a nice and easy way to give a present. Unbelievable that Oculus doesn't want all that possible extra business.

This isnt really a thing that would be a problem, but if we do the gift cards, then it wouldn't be a problem just gitting that and giving that to them.
This would be great, if there's a game you really want to play with someone you don't have to send them money to get them to buy it.
Seriously this is a no brainer! We get to buy games for friends and Oculus gets MORE WAYS TO SELL GAMES AND MAKE MONEY! It’s a win-win!
How is this not a top priority?! You've finally made good VR accessible to the masses and then dropped the ball on game gifting? I can understand the lack of gifting on the pc side with cv1. Anyone dedicated enough to have a gaming PC and setup the cameras can probably afford and figure out how to aquire games. But quest is the "everymans vr" and the paths to experiencing good VR content need to be easy and plentiful.

Facebook should really step up on this with the holidays coming up!
Leaving a lot of revenue on the table otherwise...

Tons of money on Paypal, me and freinds checking the store, they are poor smucks and have no mooney. Can I be please be able to buy games for them. Please take my money too?
Exactly this. I bought 3 quests and would love to buy games for their recipients. Yes I could send some sort of amex gift card or paypal thing but the friction there is huge. Nevermind explaining to a 10 year old on the other side of the planet how to do it on their end of the transaction. I have his username, I want to buy a game. Done! That is how it should be.

I want to gift games to a friend who doesn't have a credit/debit card yet but since there's no gift system or gift cards it's impossible. You guys would make pretty good money

Gifting would be great, I've instinctively gone to gift someone a title a couple of times and always have to remember that Oculus is three years into having a store and still does not have the feature.

Seriously! I just gifted a Quest to my family. But I can't buy any games for them to help curate their experience! You guys have to know that allowing gifting is an instant way to increase your own revenue. Please provide this soon!
