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

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?

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.
