How to justify buying the latest console to your partner.

The understanding other half, or even that rarest of creatures, the gaming partner, are few and far between, so us gamers need to get better at qualifying the expense as one we will both benefit from. With announcements of a new Playstation and Xbox later this year, it’s time to get thinking about those excuses. Here’s a few suggestions that may help when it comes to it. (Culture)

My excuse will be.......

Wait, I'm not dating at the moment... YES!

Being a girl who games you don't have this problem really as I don't think I've ever dated a non-gamer.

Same here, one of my ex's was a non-gamer, but that didn't last very long... Every other girl I've dated has been at least (to some extent) a gamer.

How to justify buying a game console??? I'll just tell her "I'm going to [insert video game retailer] to buy the PS4". I don't need to justify how I spend my money, that's why I have a job

My partners a gamer. She'll be routing for me to get it. Easy

I agreed although depends on the circumstances/GF. Hopefully you are bit more tactful though if you do try to justify it... or it probably won't matter anymore.

Usually goes something like this.

GF:How can you spend $400+ on something like that.

Me:Cuz it's worth the damn price for everything i can do on it.

Her:Waste of money if you ask me and too expensive.

Me:You wanna talk about expensive and waste of money?Your damn Coach bags cost at least $400+,make up at least 100+ everytime you shop.

Her:Shut up and just get it -__-.

Me:Lol never fails.

If I had to "justify" my hobby to anyone then they're not really worth being with.

Salute this man.
insomnium2  +   542d ago
Ummm.... what about if you have kids and don't have that much money to spend on stuff?
ddurand1  +   540d ago
then you should be responsible with your money like a man and your significant other shouldnt have to tell you that.

otherwise. assuming that the ps4 comes out in the first week of november, there are roughly 25 weeks left until release.

put aside 25$ a week till then and youll be able to save up enough for a console and a fwe games.

my wife likes the ps3 and 360, so i'm sure she'll like the xbox1 and ps4

My excuse for buying the XBox One would be: Oh come on baby, you're always going on about how hot the idea of being watched makes you.
Wintersun616  +   542d ago
My wife couldn't beat the first level on Super Mario Bros so she really is not a gamer. I don't need to justify my gaming purchases to her because I buy them with my own gained money and also I always make sure it doesn't interfere with more important things such as paying bills, food and rent.
syphon32  +   542d ago
Justify what, i work, i have my own f$%king money, If you got a problem their's the door.
isarai  +   542d ago
It's my fucking money, as long as the bills are paid and there's food on the table i can do whatever the fuck i want with it
