Best answer: Yes, you can gift games through the Oculus Store. Facebook recently added the option to buy games for friends, making it easy to share the gift of VR.

How to gift Oculus Quest games

When the original Oculus Quest launched, you couldn't gift games to people through the Oculus Store. This made it awkward to try to share the VR titles you love. People had to purchase items like Visa gift cards or just give people cash. That's all in the past now as you can easily gift people games and apps through the Oculus Store.

That means that you can give games to your friends and family members that have an Oculus Quest 2 or Oculus Quest.

To gift a game:

  1. Select Buy for a friend option on any listing from the Oculus Store.
  2. Enter your friend's email address.
  3. Add an optional note
  4. Enter your payment method.

Redeeming gifts through the Oculus Store

When you receive a gift through the Oculus Store and have a code, you just need to paste it over and redeem the gift.

  1. Go to the game or app listing you have a gift for.
  2. Select Redeem gift.
  3. Enter the 25-digit gift code.
