Rumor Roundup: Star Wars Live-Action TV Shows? Apple Cars? More?


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:

Apple Car
  • Will Apple's Electric Car Be Based on the BMW i3?
    ii3? [Silicone Angle]

  • Has "Half Life 3" Been Put on Hold Because of Fear?
    The fear that over-critical fans will tear it apart if it's not "perfect," that is. So, yeah, just like mom always used to tell us: "Always care what people think about you. You won't do much, but at least what you don't do won't get you laughed at!" [Design Trend]

Han Chewie
  • Are Live-Action "Star Wars" Shows Coming to a TV Near You?
    "Chewie, we're home... Box Office. We're on HBO! Oh, it's Netflix? Hmmm. How about 'Jumping networks ain't like dustin' crops, boy!'?" —Harrison Ford, who thinks all streaming services are the same, recording a commercial for Netflix. [Decider]

  • Will PC Gamers Have to Wait an Extra Two Years for GTA VI?
    Console gamers will get it in 2018; PC people in 2020. Why, that's enough to drive someone to be a rage-filled maniac who carjacks people! [KRWG News]

Nintendo Question Block
  • Is Nintendo Considering Getting Into the Monthly Subscription Box Business?
    To fit in with the Nintendo business model, the service will send you the same content, just in slightly different packaging, each month. "Oh, look! Another Zelda toy! This one is slightly higher quality than the last one, so I'm glad I got it!" [Gameranx]

  • Is Amazon Considering Opening a Drive-Through Grocery Store?
    Order online, then pick them up at the store, without getting out of your car. It's car-culture meets online-culture in a risky move to destroy the environment with smog and personal interactions with other humans! [PC Mag]
