Microsoft last month posted a short video to promote Xbox One. That ad highlighted that Xbox One is the only place to play the best exclusives and all of the biggest blockbusters of the year. The games include Halo, Call of Duty, Assassins Creed Unity, Sunset Overdrive and more. This video was backed by a voice over with the words from the movie Rocky Balboa. Sylvester Stallone speaks an inspiring dialogue in that movie, you can read more about it here. Microsoft today posted a new video titled Best Multiplayer to highlight the fact that the best multiplayer community lives on Xbox One. This time the voice over is Bob Thornton speech from the movie Friday Night Lights.

Here is the actual dialogue from the movie,

Well I want you to understand somethin’. To me, being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there. It’s not about winning. It’s about you and your relationship to yourself and your family and your friends.

Being perfect is about being able to look your friends in the eye and know that you didn’t let them down, because you told them the truth. And that truth is that you did everything that you could. There wasn’t one more thing that you could’ve done.

Can you live in that moment, as best you can, with clear eyes and love in your heart? With joy in your heart?

If you can do that gentlemen, then you’re perfect.

I want you to take a moment. And I want you to look each other in the eyes. I want you to put each other in your hearts forever, because forever’s about to happen here in just a few minutes.
