Rumor Roundup: Batman: Arkham Prequel? Google Smartwatch? More?

By , dealnews Media Editor

When the Internet runs out of news, it starts making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

  • The Next Batman: Arkham Asylum Game Will Be a Prequel?
    It'll take place in the "Silver Age" of comics (the 50s and 60s), before comics got all dark and gritty. Of course, in this video game reimagining, it'll be all dark and gritty. [The Escapist]

  • Google Working on a Smartwatch, Too?
    I can't wait for the first lawsuit between the different companies developing a smartwatch. It will finally mean we get to see who owns a patent on time. [CNET]

  • Spotify Adding Video Content to Its Streaming Offerings?
    Years later we'll all be saying, "Remember when Spotify actually played videos? Now it's all "America's Next Teen Pregnant Mom." Those who forget history are doomed to see repeats. [FastCompany]

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Will Feature an "Unbreakable" Screen?
    It's not what you think! "Unbreakable" only refers to the fact that it's hard to beak. (You were thinking that "Unbreakable" referred to the 2000 Bruce Willis / Samuel L. Jackson superhero movie, yes?) [Phandroid]

  • My Chemical Romance to Rebrand as a New Band?
    Just like the last time a pop icon did this, they will now be known as "My Chemical Romance II" (or "New My Chemical Romance") for a while, then revert to "Classic My Chemical Romance." [Alter the Press]

  • Apple Working on a 4K TV?
    This 3840x2160 TV will come to market by early 2014. Content that plays at that resolution should be on the market by 2016. [Apple Insider]

  • Windows' OS Update, Blue, Will Replace Windows RT?
    And just like with Darren, we're expected to not notice and carry on like nothing ever happened?! Well, this is a FINE kettle of Becky Conners! [Laptop Mag]
