Wow, that's a nice change. I actually do that a lot, buy games on sale and have them sit in my inventory for months waiting for a person's birthday. Nice that that can be automated now.
Not surprised about the limitations regarding gifting to people in other countries. I've only heard a little bit of law regarding pricing and sales and gifting between countries, and BOY, that stuff will make your head spin. I'm surprised they didn't just say you could only gift to people in the same country just to circumvent all of that awful legal mess.
