So you want the X-Arcade™? The only thing standing in the way of you and this noble goal, is your loving and gorgeous wife. She’s a great woman, probably out of your league, but nonetheless she doesn’t get it, and doesn’t see why you ‘need another doo hickey gadget for that silly gameroom’.
Tell her it's for your kids.
Regular use of an X-Arcade™ can be therapeutic for tense or strained marriages. Seems that pounding and smashing away at the X-Arcade ™ Machine controls is a safe and healthy way to vent pent up anger. Especially for female spouses.
Tell her it will build up your biceps. (pounding on those joysticks is a workout.)
Sell some of those unused powertools sitting in the garage, put them on Ebay to raise some funds
Start small. Just buy the Two Player, and get your wife hooked on it. Download Ms. Pacman or her favorite arcade game from her youth. Then it will be much easier to manipulate , er, uh, I mean talk her into the ultimate X-Arcade ™ Machine
If she is the practical type, tell her about the lifetime warranty. Tell her it is that last X-Arcade ™ Machine you will ever need.
Tell her that you can literally play thousands of games, and unlike your game consoles, each game doesn’t cost $50 bucks.
Get off your lazy butt and finally finish all those honey-dos around the house. Rub her back, open doors for her when your out and about. You know, do all the chivalrous stuff that ladies love. Then find the right moment to ask her. (Notice: Just because she says yes DON'T stop doing those things for her, you should have been doing them all along…she is after all, out of your league)
If all else fails and she seems as though she will never agree to let you have an X-Arcade ™ Machine, just talk a rich friend into buying one, then spend a lot of time at his house. Owning an X-Arcade Machine™ by proxy is better than not having one at all.
Whatever you do, don’t guilt her into it, or lie or cheat or steal money from her cosmetic budget to pay for your X-Arcade Machine™. There are things more important than the X-Arcade ™ Machine, although we can’t think of any right now.
As a last resort, send her the following message from us:
Dear Lovely Wife,
So you just found out that your husband is an X-Arcade Machine™ kinda guy. Chances are he is doing his best to talk you into letting him buy one to put into the game room.
Chances are he is failing miserably.
The guys that love our gear come from all walks of life: rich, poor, diverse ethnic backgrounds, some are good lookin’ others not so much, but they all have one thing in common--They are attracted to things they don’t deserve. After all, he did marry up (way up) right?
We can certainly understand why you are convinced that an X-Arcade Machine™ is a silly expense, considering how much he has already spent on the game room. Still, there are a few benefits for you if he owns an X-Arcade Machine™. We wanted to make sure that you knew what they were before you ruled it out completely.
So again, unless you are so broke that you are rolling pennies to pay for baby formula, there are some decent reasons why you should let him get an X-Arcade ™ Machine .
But if you are still not convinced we understand. He should be thankful just to have you, period end of story.
