Been married over 10 years. I can tell you "Hahaha I'm sure it would" means it isn't happening...
I am hoping I am wrong and you do get it but my years of experience with such responses from a wife is what it is.
"Hahaha I'm sure it would" in my marriage literally means hahahaha no.
Easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
Thought for sure when I started reading MS was gonna hook you up.
Here's some ammo when making the case for a new console:
It's important to understand that the Xbox One X isn't just a great game-playing device, and the most powerful game console ever created, it's also a great way to enjoy streaming and physical media in 4K and HDR. Also, you can use it to surf the Internet right on your TV, enabling you to explore educational websites as a family. The Xbox One X is also aesthetically pleasing, with a dark, modern color scheme that enhances the decor of any room, and telegraphs your sophisticated taste in design to your friends and neighbors. If your tastes run more to minimalism, the vertical stand enables you to tuck the console behind the TV.
How am I doing?
Watch them end up giving you the Xbox one X
You loved MS's post but only liked your wife's post...
I'd fix it before she notices and decides to not give you the xbox
My girlfriend is crazy for extravagant gifts. She bought a PS4 for my birthday last year then asked if I wanted a Switch for Christmas. I talked her out of that though, since my Wii U would end up gathering too much dust and I've still got a backlog to get through.
Key words here: "try to."
I'm gonna assume it didn't work? xD
I'm just upvoting so you can show her this post and put more pressure on her :)
Hope you'll get one!
