The Daily Hotness: Ten bucks a month for the next Xbox?

11:59 PM on 04.25.2013 // Darren Nakamura

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Some rumors came out today about the next Xbox, and the most jarring piece of information for me was the idea that the lower tier model would be tied to a ten dollar monthly subscription. As somebody who pays less than half of that for Xbox Live currently and is struggling to continue justifying it, I can't imagine what the next Xbox could offer that would make me want to pay that amount. Of course, the implication from the rumor is that the upper tier Xbox won't have a subscription fee at all...

On Destructoid, the Podtoid crew released their 250th episode, Steven called us all losers, Vito defended breasts, and a seemingly inordinate amount of offbeat stories showed up on this fine day. Why don't you take a look at what you might have missed?

Happy #Darksiders2 day-I mean Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Transformers Devastation PS4 - $24. The Order 1886 $10. Digital flash sale on PSN. I think I'm going to have to bite on both these. And I hate digital if I can avoid it ...

Remember folks, don't forget to smoke cigarettes in between courses during thanksgiving to help in digestion.

Playing New Vegas again because reasons, it occurs to me that it'd be nice if Old World Blues gave me the option to move the Brotherhood of Steel to the Big MT instead of wiping them out for Mr. House.

Near heart attack as for a minute it seemed like the A button of my 3DS was busted. It's fine now though, I think we'll live.

There's now a £4/$5 Raspberry Pi. So cheap it's a cover extra on the latest Mag Pi. Based on the original chipset, it's single core but clocked at 1Ghz so it's quite a bit faster and oh so tiny. I can't wait to see what folks build with it.

After a lifetime of not spending a single cent on FTP games, I finally broke and dropped €1 in the Nintendo Badge Arcade. I just had to have all the Luigi badges asap. I feel dirty. Plus side, my 3ds will be covered in Luigi.

I tried driving as Uber last night to start supplementing my income and everyone so far has been super chill. Also, I started practicing in my sleepy small home city so the training wheels were still on. No big city bar hoppers just yet.

Just got my Gwent physical edition. I don't understand special abilities - for example, Arachas have an icon with two knights beneath the close combat icon. Avallac'h has an eye in that same spot. Help? (I'm no longer a squid btw)

Happy Thanksgiving all! Load up on carbs and then get back to playing Fallout 4.

I dunno if I just had a freak incident but I think Ubisoft may have just changed the Renown gain in Rainbow Six Siege to be less shit as in overnight they've patched it. If true, kinda good on them.

Does it mess with anyone else's head that when beating a SMBW level in Mario Maker the music doesn't do that little 'booowoo oop' at the end. [youtube][/youtube]

I've developed a new hobby to indulge in while on Skype with friends: creating stupid Sonic OCs. I have so much fun making them for some weird reason, and once I have enough of them I might as well post a c-blog of them, am I right? Look out in the future

Boy howdy, does Divinity: Original Sin take a while to get going. But, it was worth it in the end. Probably the most hardcore RPG I've played. Stellar writing, at that! Combat's pretty amazing too. [img][/img]

So it seems I've locked into the Neutral ending for SMT IV and now I need to find specific challenge quests and complete them...? How (un)fun! Google is your friend - the videogame.
