Rumor Roundup: More "Watchmen"? Google Cable?

By , dealnews Media Editor

Start collecting rumors now, so you can burn them for heat later.

  • "Watchmen" Prequels on the Way?
    Because prequels always do more to add to a current story and not destroy the original work in irreparable ways. Like "Star Wars Episode I," or "The Thing" prequel/remake. QED. [TGDaily]

  • Grand Theft Auto 5's World Will be Twice as Large as Red Dead Redemption's?
    That's the rumor, as told by SystemLink Multi. With twice as much useless landscape to travel through, the game will focus on the old parent-on-a-car-trip mantra, "half the fun is getting there". Rockstar thinks you'll appreciate the gun-violence more if you have to wait for it ... just like you appreciated Disney World more, after 12 hours in a car with no A/C.

  • Hulu Plus Ready for Apple TV?
    The app is ready to go, but 9to5Mac says that Apple is up in the air about adding it to their offerings. I guess, with it's $7.99 per month fee, Apple sees Hulu Plus as too expensive and not in-line with their "budget-minded" hardware.

  • Sony Developing Mood-Sensing Controllers?
    The Escapist says that the joysticks would monitor sweat levels, heart rate, and muscle tension and adjust your game-play accordingly. But will it also be able to anticipate a rage-quit and shut itself down, before you throw the controller across the room?

  • Google Wants to Get Into the Cable TV Business?
    Even though they have none, their customer service is already as good as Comcast or Time Warner's, so why not? Oh, right ... the fact that content providers hate Google! How does Google keep forgetting this?! [HotHardware]
