How the heck do I send Oculus Go games as a gift to my parents?

    Unfortunately, gifting is not supported at this time. 
    Core i7-7700k @ 4.9 Ghz | 32 GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance @ 3000Mhz | 2x 1TB Samsung Evo | 2x 4GB WD Black
    ASUS MAXIMUS IX HERO | MSI AERO GTX 1080 OC @ 2000Mhz | Corsair Carbide Series 400C White (RGB FTW!) 

    Be kind to one another :)

    Can we agree that this is something that needs to be added? Is there any workaround?

    No workaround right now.  It took them forever to adopt the same type of return policy as Steam but they did eventually.  I assume the same will happen with the gifting options.

    We don't support this currently. It's good feedback though, and it would be pretty useful.
    AMD Ryzen 7 1800X | MSI X370 Titanium | G.Skill 16GB DDR4 3200 | EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 | Corsair Hydro H110i
    Gigabyte RX Vega 64 x2 | Samsung 960 Evo M.2 500GB | Seagate FireCuda SSHD 2TB | Phanteks ENTHOO EVOLV

    One possible workaround is to add your credit card as an alternative payment method to their Oculus account, and you can then purchase the games for them using a web browser at oculus.com/experiences/go (make sure you log in with the account associated with the go) the games will then appear in their ready to download list inside of GO library.

    I just want to be able to gift games to my parents. Nothing crazy.

    A gift card option would also be fine!

    I bought three Oculus Go's for my family months ago and have been waiting for this feature. I would like to try some multiplayer experiences with them casually, without them having to think of credit cards and spending their own money. Please consider bumping the priority on this!

    Oculus Store is just horrible as a "store" itself. They simply have no clue how to make money. In fact, seems like they don't quite like it. Another ridiculous issue is not being able to buy more than one game at a time, obliging us to make a suspicious bunch of small purchases in a few minutes.

    Feels strange. In contrast to letting us have a taste of one of the greatest technology developments of these days, this somehow feels a bit 2004. Oculus, please, let's gift another.

    Hey, Oculus … gifting is not brain surgery. Fix it, mmmmkay? You’re losing money.

    Now waiting for gifting for the Quest as well. Even gift cards would do.

    There seriously needs to be a petition to have gifting in the Oculus store. It is beyond stupid that this has not been implemented.this is where  co-op and multiplayer experiences thrive.

    I don't think Oculus reads this thread. Game gifting or gift cards isn't complicated. Wonder why they don't want the money it would generate? Strange.

    What hilarious is that you think petitions work. They don’t sadly.

    Grooooooan... talking about leaving millions on the table. Tell any friend that is an investor and get them to start complaining. Grandmas everywhere are just waiting to buy VR games for their babies.
