Wednesday morning online trends 6/12

(KFVS) -

There are many stories grabbing attention online Wednesday morning. Here's a look at some interesting topics you'll want to know about.

One of the big talkers continues to be the unveiling of the Playstation 4.

It's been made well known that the Playstation will be cheaper than Microsoft's Xbox One by $100, but there are apparently other major differences, according to Sony.

The company says the new Playstation will not require users to have a nearly constant Internet connection and also users will not have restrictions on sharing games and selling used games as the Xbox One reportedly does.

Both the Xbox One and the Playstation 4 are set to release this fall.

Student loan debt is on the minds of many these days, making this trending story very appropriate.

One grad student went to extremes to avoid being in debt by secretly living in a van!

The man lived in the van for the entire time he was attending grad school, without telling anyone, and it really paid off as he graduated completely debt free.

YouTube features an incredible time lapse of a supercell thunderstorm over Texas.

In case you're looking for another ridiculous and unnecessary item I've found one for you!

There are pure gold shoes now available, but not without a cost.

Priced at around $2,600 a pair there are heels for the ladies and loafers for the guys.

You can take a look at the gold shoes here.

A 90-year-old lobsterman was on his boat when it hit some rocks and sank.

The man was able to swim to a nearby island and was eventually saved.

He seems to be doing pretty well, just a few bumps and bruises, but he says he's ready to get back on the water as soon as possible!

Check out pictures of the man and his sinking boat by clicking here.
