Having trouble convicing your significant other to let you get an Xbox One? Microsoft can “Help”!

"Use this letter and your significant other will be sure to let you get this console!" says Microsoft.

“Use this letter and your significant other will be sure to let you get this console!” says Microsoft.

Some may recall that Microsoft had provided sick notes for people on the day of the Xbox One launch. Well, they’ve recently decided to provide a brand new note, this one aimed at helping gamers convince their significant other to let them purchase the console.

The note can be found below, and can be changed based on your gaming preferences:

Hey honey,

Not sure if you’ve heard, but Xbox One is now available. That means we can start playing games like Dead Rising 3. I know, I know. You’d rather do your taxes early than watch me slay zombies, but hear me out on this. Xbox One is actually for both of us. Seriously.

I put together a list of reasons why the console could benefit you and me—together and apart, but mostly together:

  1. Games! Maybe you don’t LOVE games like I do, but there’s really something for everyone. While I’m playing Dead Rising 3, you might like arcade games. And since you were just begging me to dance, I’m willing to play Forza Motorsport 5 just for you. It’s a win-win!
  2. Entertainment for both of us. You love movies and I love football. Well, with the Xbox One, we can love both. We can catch your favorite team AND check out my favorite team. Just think of all this togetherness we’re going to experience. It’s gonna be awesome!
  3. It will help us get fit. The console offers Xbox Fitness free with Xbox Live Gold through December 2014* so I can get the abs I’ve always dreamed of, while working out to Tracy Anderson.
  4. Play with others. You’ve been encouraging me to play with others and it just so happens that Xbox One has the best multiplayer service that filters out jerks. So don’t you worry. If we get an Xbox One, I’ll bemaking new friends in no time.
  5. We can talk on Skype with your favorite sister whom, of course, I love dearly. Heck, we can even talk to them while we watch your favorite TV show.

So what do you say? Let’s be like an awesome movie montage—just me, you, and my our Xbox One—together at last.


p.s. Did I mention how beautiful you are? And how I really appreciate that you love me more than anything ?

p.p.s If (or should I say when) we get Xbox One, you have dibs on the first multiplayer game that we experience together.

p.p.p.s Long story short: I really, really, really want one for the holidays—y’know… for us.

So, what do you think of Microsoft’s new attempt at “Helping”?

Thanks, Kotaku.
