Rumor Roundup: Eminem for Wii U? Next-Gen Xbox Name?

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:

  • Next-Gen Xbox Will Be Called Xbox 8?
    Is that enough of a name? I ask again: Is "8" enough?! [StickSkills]

  • Google to Buy Meebo?
    I didn't know there was a smaller social network than Google+. [VatorNews]

  • Eminem to Appear in a Game for Nintendo's Wii U?
    I'm a little lazy today, so I'm just gonna go with a "would the real truth about this game please stand up, please stand up, please stand up?" and call it a day. [GoNintendo]

  • iPhone 5 to Have a 4" Screen, Was Designed by Steve Jobs?
    To clarify, apparently, he was working on it before he passed on. This is not a "with the help of a Ouija Board" situation. (Though I wouldn't put it past some psychics to try that. "Are you comfortable, in the beyond?" N-O-T-U-R-T-L-E-N-E-C-K-S-H-E-R-E. "Huh. That doesn't clear much up.") [WebProNews]

  • Google to Offer Multiple "Nexus" Devices at Once?
    How do you combat the "fragmentation" criticism of the Android platform? By releasing more "flagship" phones at the same time! [Wall Street Journal]

  • iPhone 5 Will Have an Unbreakable Screen?
    Challenge accepted! Go ahead, fanboy, tell me all about your unbreakable screen. I now carry a hammer for just such an occasion. [Technorati]

It will be Xbox "infinity".  Someone misunderstood the symbol and turned it sideways
