Rumor Roundup: Download Arkham Knight to Your Bat-Computer?


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:

YouTube Shrug Girl
  • Is YouTube About to Announce a Live Video Streaming Service?
    The above image was YouTube's official response to that question. Yes, they responded with a gif. Maybe our parents were right; maybe our generation will finally destroy the English language? (Oh well, let's have fun watching it burn! lol) [Inquisitr]

  • Are Music Labels Pressuring Spotify to End the Free Version of its Service?
    Who could have predicted that allowing free, on-demand access to any song or album, for the cost of listening to a single ad every seventh song or so, wouldn't generate enough revenue to pay the music labels the millions of dollars that they're used to getting in royalties. (Wa-hmmm? What's your question about artist's royalties? Let's solve what's important, first, then we'll worry about those jerks.) [The Verge]

Bat Computer
  • Will the Upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight Game Be Download-Only For the PC?
    Na na na na na Na na na na nascent... delivery method! (Did you see Batgirl drive by? That means she'll guest star!) [GameZone]

  • Can Apple Build 1.5 Million Apple Watches Every Month?
    To put that in perspective, that's one watch for every man, woman, and child in the world (limit 1.5 million) or 1.5 million watches for one very lucky person. Did that help? [Geeky Gadgets]

GTA Visual Downgrade
  • Have the Graphics of GTA 5 Gotten Worse, After Software Patches?
    Don't worry, the violence is still quite recognizable. [Attack of the Fanboy]

  • Will the Next Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Employ a Different Means of Character Movement?
    As far as I know, there's a finite number of ways for humans to walk. Wait! Wait! I now see that The Ministry Of Silly Walks is credited as a consultant. [SPX Extreme]
